Space&Sound is an art and music collective based in Honolulu, Hawaii started by Travis Tokuyama, Alika Pflatzgraff, Joe Gosalvez and myself in 2009. The collective began from a few conversations we had while all working at a local radio station. From 2009–2011, Space&Sound organized art exhibitions and music events locally. We contacted and booked the artists, designed all collateral, marketing materials as well as prepared press kits. We also produced all the events and handled details such as ticketing and travel coordination ourselves.
The project took a hiatus in 2011 and relaunched with new branding and initiatives in September 2014. No longer only based in Honolulu, Travis and myself continued the project from Washington D.C., Denver, and Los Angeles. We focused on building relationships with creatives globally and began to shift to interviewing and highlighting new artists on our website. We even released select music via cassette tapes on our own. We also expanded to create merchandise to help fund the project. This really gave us an opportunity cultivate a community of artists. Due to time constraints, the project became defunct in 2016.Space&Sound was featured in Honolulu Weekly, Honolulu Advertiser and Star Bulletin.
Spells (Poster/Collateral Design)
- Poster designed for Spells presents Com Truise (Seth Haley) of Ghostly International with Addison Groove. Inspired by 80's video game covers and my deep interest in outer space.
Poster Featured in Communication Arts March 2017.
- Flyer, hand bill, and ticket design for Spells presents Shigeto (Zach Saginaw) and Dabrye (Tadd Mullinix). This project came up through a conversation with Spells to organize a Ghostly International themed event in Honolulu. This event featured musicians Shigeto and Dabrye. Video web flyer done in collaboration with Hypoetical.
As Ghostly International is my favorite record label, I designed a 20" x 30" poster featuring an infographic of a song made by each musician. This was only printed in a run of 6.
