I recently had the pleasure of designing a poster for Built To Spill's latest Australian tour by Feel Presents. Built to Spill are an American indie rock band that formed in the 90's and are touring their latest album, 'Untethered Moon'. I wanted to go with a comic book cover space theme. I always love to be able to combine my love of illustration and hand drawn type, and even better a space girl. Inspired by the lovely Jean Shrimpton.

I recently had the pleasure of designing these business cards for Melbourne photographer Steen Vestergaard. The brief was to have a retro, old school glamour vibe with a fashion/photographer element. I was thinking Dior, Audrey Hepburn, you know the classics, and came up with several designs.

 Steen being a dream client decided to go with 3 of the designs and then we agreed that letterpress printing would be the best way to go. Ace! The Hungry Workshop did a sterling job of the 2 colour print job and I am super happy with results. Letterpress printing has such a nice tactile quality and hopefully these will stand the test of time through different fashion trends like an old classic.
