Nosaj Thing Poster

Nosaj Thing

Event poster for LA producer Nosaj Thing (Jason Chung) show in Honolulu. This event was organized by Travis Tokuyama and myself. This was our first foray into event organization, press, and marketing. Special thanks to ET/AL and our friends for help.

Concept behind the design was Chung's name. I wanted to do a visual play on his moniker as it is a play on Chung's own name. He explained that "Nosaj Thing" came from writing his name with permanent markers. When turning the page, it read "Nosaj." His moniker, Nosaj Thing, is intended to sound like "No such thing" when spoken. If you look closely at the poster, the shapes spell out "N O S A J."

JAPAN AID

Space&Sound, in collaboration with Lightsleepers, put together a benefit concert for the people in Japan. 100% of the proceeds were donated to The Salvation Army of Japan. The benefit concert featured an amazing line up of local musicians of every genre. 

Designing fliers and shirts for this event was difficult and emotional for me. I wanted to show the emotion and magnitude of what had happened without being too obvious, offensive or too ornate. The flier is simple, with the Japan flag being distressed. Subtle cracks run through it. The raw edges were intended to convey both debris and also reminded me of the spray of ocean water. For the event, Space&Sound printed a very small run of shirts to sell as well as  posters printed on rice paper. Each poster was hand cut and numbered.

Shigeto / Dabrye

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.

Featured in Honolulu Weekly and Chinatown Newspaper.

Concert for the philippines

In response to Typhoon Haiyan, Music for Relief with LINKIN PARK, Bad Religion, and Rise Against put together a benefit concert raising over $500,000. The concert was held in Los Angeles, CA at Club Nokia. The concert was aired on TV as well as available for live stream.

My role was creating the overall art direction and branding for the event. This was my foray into creating assets for broadcast. From poster, to flyer, web and social media assets, broadcast title screens, merchandise, posters, table cloths/booth activation, to print ads for the LA Weekly. I oversaw as well as project managed any visual aspect of this event. I also, on the day of the event, helped with run of show.
