Blackstrap is a company based in Bend, Oregon USA who make outdoor sports focused products. About a year ago I won a contest to design a gaiter neck protector and one part of winning that contest was to have a one of a kind snowboard made. The snowboard was hand crafted by Santian Snolab who make bespoke boards. The board reflected the design of the winning gaiter, a two color character doodle illustration. The art ran the length of the board and covered one entire side. The wood grain is visible through the art and I really like that hand crafted feel. The final board looks great and hangs in my studio space.View Full Post
Black Pig Brewery in Switzerland reached out to me to collaborate on some beer packaging for their Collabrew series. Working with their creative team I designed a background doodle for the can featuring a collection of beer related characters. The design featured heavy gradients and thick black lines to make the can stand out from the crowd.
The final can is available in Europe, mainly Switzerland. It will be available for a limited time in limited numbers. Black Pig Craft Brewing were great to work with and made this commission effortless. Creatively this project was a lot of fun.View Full Post
