Thanks to Robin and the kind folks at the Frikkie Awesome Blog for this awesome feature…
“Well its that time again… Time for another Frikkie Cool Creative… And today we shall not disappoint!! Today’s creative is another P-Town local, but who now resides in another land… Far far away in Toronto, Canada, the land of snow and ice hockey, one can find the incredibly talented and most Rock n’ Roll guy that you will ever meet!!! The guy I’m referring to is none other than Andrew Wright!“…read the rest HERE.
I’m happy to announce that the Breath Of Fresh Air Design website has had a make-over with a lot of changes, a new look and a new direction…the true direction.
There’s a whole lot of new work and projects that have yet to see the light of day now posted up along with some great hot roddin kustom work and tattoo flash paintings for your eyes to feast on.
I have also opened up an online store where you can now buy several of my prints and original kustom artwork and I will be adding more items as they become available. Check out the store HERE.
So let me know what you think of the new look-and-feel and click the “Sign Me Up” button to the left here to stay up to date with any new posts.
More exciting things to come…
Just finished this show poster for the Dominion On Queen venue on the east side of Toronto.
There’s nothing better than having a client on the phone as you email the poster to him and have him scream down the phone with excitement. Great client, great project!
Make sure you check out out Bradley Boy Mac Arthur as he definitely has a great sound and entertaining show.
There’s something about the look and feel of a letter-pressed poster that stands out over a digitally printed one.
And I’m sure the fact that you can add a little whisky to the ink helps too.
Here’s to the end of another week and a couple of whiskys at the bar tonight!
Hope everyone had a killer holiday and New Year!
Now back to business with some great projects in the pipeline.
Here’s a logo and tee design I just completed for The Yard, a South African gym based in Johannesburg.
Here’s looking forward to an awesome 2012 and getting the chance to meet some great new people in the process.
I am definitely a huge magazine nerd and any chance I can get, I will spend my hard earned money on hot rod, pinstriping, music and skateboarding magazines. Magazines are, without a doubt, becoming more expensive. But the main problem is that actual, physically printed magazines are slowly going the the way of the dinosaurs and becoming extinct.
Now since moving to Toronto, I’ve known of a magazine called “King Shit“…yes, you read right “King Shit“, and it is a locally produced skateboard magazine based just a couple of blocks down from where I live. I finally found a copy of the mag at a great skate shop called Sanction.
The reason I’m mentioning this magazine is because I think all magazines should be run like this…the magazine is FREE. Everyone likes free stuff and everyone likes to give away stuff. So the stores are looking good by giving away these mags and more people are picking up the mag and reading it, which in turn gives the advertisers a broader marketing base.
I’m not going to argue with anyone that picking up your iPad or laptop and downloading the magazine for free, or next to nothing is a bad idea. But for me there’s nothing better than having that magazine in my hands and being able to store it on the book shelf to read over and over again. “King Shit” is such a mag…the quality of the paper and print is amazing (better than some other skate mags I’ve read), the photography and design is brilliant and a great source of design inspiration and the articles are well written. I’ve read a lot of people complaining about the quality of the interviews and writing but you know what…when you have people offering you a free skate mag with great photos, ads and info, I really don’t think you should be complaining.
Had the pleasure of designing a logo for a very unique client. The “Brotherhood of Mustaches & Beards”. You can see their Facebook page at www.officialbomb.com while they’re working on their website.
A fun and unique organization which has promise to develop into a full line of mustache and beard related products in the future.
Had the opportunity to revamp the look, feel and corporate identity for Koffin Kitten Hair Accessories from logo design to the packaging, marketing material and the website.
A fun project that I thoroughly enjoyed and it was a challenge to keep the “psychobilly” feel of the brand alongside a girly and more rockabilly feel that would appeal to all the ladies with style out there!
The website (www.koffinkitten.co.za) and relaunch was only a couple of weeks ago and already the response has been great. A retail store catalog is the next project which will be out soon. Keep posted to the website/blog for the latest Breath Of Fresh Air news!
