The End of Cafe Taza

Cafe Taza, the small cafe that I go to most mornings, is changing ownership and with this change the old identity I designed for the cafe is going to be retired. Below is the poster I designed for the transition party. Below that are some examples of the identity system in action.


Wall Paintings for Play/Ground

I spent two days making six large wall paintings for Resource Art’s Play/Ground event. 29 artists will be making installations in a former high school in Medina, NY. More pictures soon.

Irregular Chickens

I have been playing around with recombining and repurposing past illustrations, with no particular goal in mind. These chickens come from the State print series.

Montague Projects' Design for Nuits Sonores

The visual identity I designed for the Nuits Sonores music festival was unveiled today. The indie/edm festival in Lyon, France features 200 performing artists and 140,000 festival-goers at 40 urban locations. Some amazing European studios have done the identity in past years (Superscript2, Studio Feixen). As a designer I’m really excited about the big posters that are going to go up in the Paris subway.  The full line-up will be announced tomorrow. I'll be posting more from this project as it takes shape.


Fast & The Furious as Penguin Crime Books

I had a cultural mash-up idea recently that was too ridiculous not to follow. I made book covers for the Fast and the Furious film series in the style of Penguin's crime series from the early 60s, using the photography of Swiss policeman and art photographer Arnold Odermatt. Apologies to Romek Marber, Arnold Odermatt and Vin Diesel.
