Killdozer Band Poster

Killdozer elk poster 11x17-01.jpg

I had the opportunity to recreate and design the new poster that will be printed by FGC Creative in the coming months. Killdozer was a band from the 80's & 90's out of Madison, Wisconsin who recorded under Touch & Go Records. They toured with bands like the Butthole Surfers, Scratch Acid, and Black Bear.

Grabbed a Gold at the American Advertising Awards Folks

addyaward

I had the honor of winning a GOLD American Advertising Award for my package design and marketing campaign for "Duber Pilsner Bier" brewed by Dubuque Beer Company in Dubuque, IA.

The next step is moving on in the upcoming national competition. That's where they separate the men from the boys, or girls from the women to be politically correct. This country. It was a pretty great honor and something I had been working on for a long time. I will keep you posted on upcoming events in case someone, besides my mother, is reading this. Cheers for now!

Community Foundation Storyboards

Every year at the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque's "Annual Luncheon" they print and frame storyboards for its members. This is usually to let the donors know how everything is running and success stories to share. I was in charge of designing a cohesive, brand friendly, storyboard design for members to easily view and read. While I was in no way trying to reinvent the wheel here, it needed to look professional, clean, and easy on the eyes. Here is a collection of some of those designs. 

Adobe Sketch is BAE.

With the unfortunate dropping of my phone, I was "forced" to purchase a new one. I decided to invest in a super sexy Galaxy 8 Note... In doing so I now had a stylus and a bigger screen to doodle. I have always loved to draw but never took the leap into drawing on a screen. Well friends, the time is now. While I am in the early stages of learning what the Abode Sketch program can do I am also training myself to use a stylus. I am so hip and fresh. You can see my progression in my sketches below. Maybe just maybe someday I can get paid to do this. Or like every other artist, your work isn't worth dick until youre dead. 

I WANT YOU

Professional Window Tint WANTS YOU

Professional Window Tint in Dubuque, Iowa has a promotion where they give their customers a free t-shirt with every transaction. What started as a simple promotion turned into something much larger. People now look forward to seeing the next up and coming design and want to know how they can get one. PWT only gives the shirts away to paying customers so you can see where it might drive a little business here or there. I have been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to design a few of them. Jason Kubitz, the owner, likes to get his inspiration from military and patriotic designs. So, that is pretty much what we have been doing....and it seems to be working.
