Washington Area Music Association (WAMA)
Our tenth in a long series of designs for the Crosstown Jam, a yearly event featuring local DC-area bands at local venues. This year's look emulated a surf/.com style that was very trendy.
Highlands Swim Team
Okay, this was nothing but fun to design. Comfort Colors is a great brand of t-shirts.
We did several designs for this record label, but the bird with the piano keys, CD head, bass guitar neck and whimsical feel captured the style of the artists who comprised the label.
Logo design that was applied to T-shirts, caps, and stickers. One person said it looked like a bird's eye view of a woman in a shower, but most people perceive it as an abstract guitar.
We worked on several different designs for this recording studio's T-shirt. They all worked, but it wasn't until this last minute brainstorm/idea that we knew we were on to something. It's simple, clean and definitely different. Having a dark graphic on a dark colored shirt is risky, but utilizing white as a base color really makes it pop.
Eddie From Ohio
This design went in conjunction with the band's newly released "three rooms" CD, which featured...a television...good guess. Very simple, two-color design but great impact.
Hat designed for nationally syndicated radio talk show based out of Fairfax, Virginia. They needed something strong and identifiable so we stuck with black and white for good contrast and used a font similar to the popular 1980s "Mossimo" beachwear.
Highlands Swim & Tennis Club
Shhh…this hasn't been unveiled just yet. With the turtle being the mascot, we came up with a classy and colorful way to incorporate the pool and tennis aspects while stylistically branding the "H" to give it that club feel.
Concert T-shirt for New Age pianist. Peter wanted black shirts and liked the elements we used on his most recent CD (Inner Works: piano & strings). So we incorporated a photo of the interior of a grand piano and gave it that summer, outdoor concert look.
Sisters of Mercury
Goth meets Beach Blanket Bingo. A female version of Sisters of Mercy. Coming up with a look quite the opposite of the band's sound was a lot of fun. The art of deception.
Other than the guitar pic, this doesn't really say music, but captures more of a kick back "vibe", which is what Pat was looking for. Pretty exclusive to those who attended any of his tour dates. A fan-based, "inside" job.
Strathmore Hall & WAMA
A pair of t-shirt designs for a concert series being held at Strathmore Hall. The music was broad and retrospective so we came up with something that had a dated look without looking too retro trendy.
Logo applied to children's backpacks and clothing hang tags. The thought behind the design was to come up with something playful and dynamic but not to go overboard since the market was children ages 5 to 18.
How do you design a youth sport program T-shirt so kids of many ages will feel "cool" wearing it? In this case, we thought, "let's do something that would be just as hip as the US Open." Hey, that was easy.
