  3. GET BROKE OR DIE TRYING

    The unintentional—unofficial motto of The OFFICIAL MFG. CO. I designed this graphic and accompanying collateral for a lecture Fritz Mesenbrink & Jeremy Pelley gave to the Louisville Graphic Design Association (pronounced Luavul).

  4. PORTLAND MEADOWS — INFOGRAPHIC

    As the Portland Meadows rebrand advanced I had the opportunity to dive into refreshing some old graphics that existed in past race day programs. Although the information remains dense I wrangled it into a cleaner, more intelligible and intuitive format. In doing so I also learned a few things about placing bets at the track.

  5. WOODBLOCK CHOCOLATE

    A series of postcards I designed for Woodblock Chocolate. The exquisite roses were collaged from the works of master Belgian painter & botanist For Pierre—Joseph Redoute.

  6. BLACK PRAIRIE

    Album design & Illustration for Portland five—piece bluegrass—influenced band BLACK PRAIRIE. I was excited to collaborate with Black Prairie, an incredible side project from the members of the band the Decemberists. I created a unique font for all the titles, which I have dubbed Prairie Round.

    Nobody wanted to interrupt Jeremy’s phone call so we just decided to go through with the photo shoot anyways

    I suppose you’re wondering why we called you all here to the blog today.


    It’s 2012 people: recession times are hanging around, the world is going to end, and our little shop of bric-a-brac, cusswords and graphic designs is growing.

    We’ve learned a ton over the last year! Worked our asses off, and broke some hearts. We hired Kim to be our studio manager, Ben to be our first studio designer … Matti, Emma & Colby are the current trifecta of Intern Power.

    Things are looking up folks, and we have so much further to go. Thanks are in order: thank you.
