Show Posters

Project Outline
Always quick and fun! I love designing show posters. Usually I make all the elements myself by taking photos or drawing/tracing on my Wacom tablet.

My Role
Getting the right feel for the event is pretty important but sometimes its anything goes at the beginning, you can always evaluate later.

City Stages: Re-Imagining The World's Fair for 2025

Project Outline
This is a series of illustrations from my thesis completed in fulfillment of a Master of Architecture from the University of Washington in 2008.

My Role
I developed this thesis with a focus on urban planning and the event landscape of Seattle after traveling to Oslo to study as a Valle Scholar. The research focuses on spontaneous street performance and the impact it has on civic life.

Bike to Pizza: Hat

Project Outline
Bike to Pizza (B2P) is a group of people that ride bikes together to pizza joints across Seattle, rate them on a blog and vote on the best at the end of every summer tour. This is the first official hat and it's kinda special. We will be adding badges to commemorate each tour, the youngest rider and other awards.

My Role
I ride on my (our) long-tail cargo bike with my 4-year-old son Finn riding on the back, sometimes my wife Susie pulls him. We like pizza. I did the illustration and color palette.

Notes
Um.....

You should totally join our group, club thing. Check us out at bike2pizza.tumblr.com
