In a Bossa Nova Mood

June 28, 2011

Here’s a new CD I designed and Illustrated for Starbucks. It’s a cool collection of classic and modern Bossa Nova. I tried to represent the cadence of the music through the use of vibrant, bold colors. The packaging tells the store of a muse, the modern take on the classic muse portrayed in the old Bossa records. My good friend Francesca Merlini helped me with the concept and wrote some of the copy. And if that wasn’t enough, her band Passarim is also featured in the CD.

Do yourselves a favor and pick up a copy of this cool CD at your local Starbucks. More pics on my website.

Taller en Vida pictures

Finally had a chance to catch up with work after getting back from Mexico. It was a short but nice visit. I had a chance to see lots of family and friends. One of the highlights of the trip was without a doubt the Taller en Vida.
We got together on a Saturday and did small live printing poster event at 75º. We sold some prints, had some beers and had lots of fun. Here are some pictures from the printing event and the final posters, which by the way, came out great.
The posters are 4 colors and printed in heavy-stock French paper. Very good quality printing and paper. If you are interested in one, let me know.

Taller en Vida Posters

I finally finished the two posters for the upcoming show in Mexico City. I’m so stoked. I have always printed my own posters in my garage, this is the first time I will do it with a “real” printer, Arturo Negrete. I can’t wait to see what they look like when they are silkscreened. I will post some pictures from the event when I get back. Wish me luck!
