Bank of America Student Survival Guide

It’s that time of year again when freshman head off to college for the first time. To help them out, we worked with Bank of America on an Instagram-based ad campaign featuring 15 illustrated tips for students as they embark on their college career. One challenge of the project was to strike a playful tone without feeling like the ads were directed to children as opposed to college students. The solution came in depicting students as both humans and animals interacting with each in some typical and not-so-typical campus situations. The full series of ads appears below along with a few of our initial sketches and mockups. You can also check out the campaign on Bank of America’s Instagram and Facebook channels.

The Decemberists Berkeley Poster

On May 1, The Decemberists performed to a sold out crowd at Berkeley, California’s Greek Theatre and we were thrilled to create the official poster for the Bay Area’s own Another Planet Entertainment. The design was inspired by the nineteenth century folklore of the band’s lyrics and signature accordion sound.

The poster is a three color screen print on French Speckletone Kraft paper with a limited artist edition of 50 prints. Check out our initial sketch below along with close up photos of the finished print. The Decemberists poster is now available in the DKNG Store. This design will also be made into an art print and sold in the coming months.

SXSW 2015 Official Poster

This year’s South by Southwest Music, Film, and Interactive festival just wrapped up in Austin, Texas, and we were honored to create the official festival poster for 2015. We were inspired by many of the icons we have come to associate with Austin including the many tour buses that roll through town for SXSW, Texas barbecue, and of course the Congress Avenue Bridge bats. 

The poster is a four color screen print on French Speckletone Madero Beach paper with an edition size of 300 prints. A small number of remaining prints are available in the DKNG Store. Check out our initial sketch below as well as closeup photos of the finished print.
