the board (aka la junta)

Just posting up some images that I did spotlighting the La Junta crew for a recent promo campaign for our summer event series. Here we are. This is us.

poppin’ off.

My flier submission to Boom Yard Los Angeles was just approved! As I was given a few more days’ time on this new version, I was able to create a new logo for them. As these events continue and their identity begins to take form, it becomes much easier to design in a manner that satisfies both the client and my own sensibilities. It’s been a bit of a struggle making this happen with Boom Yard, but we continually work together to approach the right aesthetic that fits the client at this moment in their evolution.

I also tried out a technique that I’d previously only imagined would work. To make the images of the dancers pop off the surface, I duplicated the original photo. On the upper layer, I first erased around the two ladies, leaving only them. I then blurred the original photo on the bottom. This shows that there was indeed a crowd at the event, hides the background persons’ less active forms, and also makes the ladies stand out. Glad it worked as I thought it would! Be sure to check out Boom Yard on SUNDAY APRIL 10 at DELICIOUS PIZZA in Los Angeles.

dreams come true.

I’m extremely proud of my La Junta brethren ‘degruvme’ for putting in the work into making one of his dreams come true! He’s produced his first collection of tunes with some of his favorite Angeleno vocalists and we’re ready to throw the ep release and concert in DTLA on FRIDAY JANUARY 22nd!! All five singers will be on hand performing their respective songs live, with a special dance performance and excellent deejay support from VNC & F-Cast aka “The Funky Brewsterz”, as well as Yukicito and yours truly of the La Junta Sound System. The fliers I created are below:
