About a week ago, I was hired to do a campaign poster–my first. The colors inset into the California image are those of Uganda. While the office is nothing but a blip on the global political scale, except for a background color swap I was happy to nail the design on the first try. Good luck to the candidate!

‘dem apples.

Even though we announced that LA JUNTA will be celebrating the 2018 New Year’s Eve by hosting our PIÑA event on Sunday December 31st, the upcoming second Friday of the month falls during this week on DECEMBER 8, meaning it’s our regular PIÑA party! Above is he flier that I created for it last night. When I sent it out to them this morning, the team immediately alerted me that I had made a couple of mistakes on the date. AND I realized that I hadn’t added the signature pineapple in the background. Anyway I love how it turned out! The pink, chocolate, black and bamboo green tones look great together.

Pictured on the flier is the Vietnamese pop group “3 Trái Táo” (The Apples 3, circa 1975).
If you’re anywhere near DTLA this Friday night, definitely stop by El Dorado DTLA! 9pm / Free.
