A Cynical Attempt at Being Feeble

So, we’ve been without the internet for the last few days at work… but that didn’t really stop anything from getting done. In fact, it’s been quite the week here at the Russell Industrial Center…

ARRIBA
Started off with a series of comps for the new Arriba! club opening up downtown. They really wanted this sunshine/beach umbrella feel to it, so that’s what they got… Here’s a few comps picked up along the way. Everyone wanted this font, which to me doesn’t say nightclub… but I’m just a designer, what do I know.

From right to left I present; the mustache, a seventies airline, Morton Salt, a travel agency, another travel agency, and a company that makes ranchero style cans of beans… Anyway, the final ended up looking like this…

…but I still liked the mustache.

Detroit – A New Beginning
Then sometime after or during all of that, Klever came and dropped off our posters for the show currently going on at the Russell Gallery. People should go and buy them… tell them you like the design, but the image looks a little lossy from the expansion from 4X6 to 24X36. Now, I know in advance that we are making posters of every handbill. Either way, it still came out ok. I got a free one. It’s sitting at home in a pile of other stuff that I designed.Here’s a preview…

Check out my spraygraphic page for the rest of the story… http://www.spraygraphic.com/ViewProject/9090/normal.html and don’t forget to click the link that says you liked it. Enough about me… time for work, only 7 more hours til vacation…
