Exhausted, but really excited to finally unveil this extensive universe full of custom type, badges, lockups, monograms, & more that we just wrapped up at @theashcollective for what’s sure to be the most badass new burger joint in Baton Rouge, @bumsteers - Did I mention they’re gonna have a ROOFTOP BAR?! Follow @bumsteers to stay in the know for their exclusive rooftop pre-party that’s right around the corner. Shoutout to our main man, @jpaul901 for that burgerboi mascot!!

#typecombotuesday is back for the 5th year!! No new color scheme this go around. Just random colors and my best recommendations for rad combos. Using a great slab serif stencil here (Dirk) and some ITC Kabel. Fact: ITC has never made a bad typeface. Change my mind.

#tbt to these patch designs I did for the @phish Fall 2018 Tour. I’ve been a Phish fan for 21 years. Getting to do work with them was definitely a highlight of 2018. #storyoftheghostforthewin

Nostalgia overload working on these!! Being 80s through and through, I’ve always loved little VHS box logos & marks. I recently had the opportunity to design some faux ones for our @theashcollective client, @hviiibrandgoods.

I’m gonna start this year off the same way I ended last year... and that’s with a long ass post.
.
I had a convo with my buddy @jasonthe29th last month and  was taken by surprise when he reminded me that we had produced 3 sold out @cropcons events in three different states in under 9 months (PopUpATX, Crop 2018, and PopUpPDX). That blew my mind and got me to looking back on all we’ve accomplished in the 3 short years we’ve been a thing.
.
First and foremost, we’ve built a come as you are, inclusive creative community with people from across the world and from all sorts of design disciplines. I couldn’t be more thankful, proud, and humbled for the opportunity to have met & become friends so many talented people. Watching relationships & partnerships grow and new friends become old friends since the first Crop has been amazing. Thank you all for believing in Crop, continuing to support us, getting the word out, and not being afraid to try something new.
.
I hear we have a vibe. I hear it’s a good one. I’m proud of that too. If you’ve never been to a @cropcons event, I highly encourage it. No better time than now. Our next one is around the corner.
.
I’m also honored to thank our extensive roster of creative badasses that have helped make our lineups year after year increasingly incredible. Too many to list/tag with the 60+ creatives that have rounded out our various lineups, but we love, respect, and appreciate the hell out of you all.
.
Last, but but certainly not least, I have to thank everyone behind the scenes that helps make it happen. The ones running around backstage, zooming across town for pencil sharpeners, being a liaison for our venues, packing swag bags, making sure we have rad stuff in the swag bags, and the ones that put up with me and helps first hand with the craziness it takes to plan these. I love you all and we’re ready to do it all again this April.
