So back when I had my weekly dj gig, I would throw together a flyer design every single week (usually during my lunch break). This would mainly involve scanning or pulling an existing image from some source, making it extra silly, cleaning it up, doing a fitting font & text treatment, and then emailing it with a description of the event.
This was before Facebook and Gmail and probably Moses, so you whippersnappers don’t know how easy you got it. Now git off mai bermuda grass!
Anyway, I hope you enjoy these, and those who were there, I hope you enjoy the trips down memory lane. =)

I took part in three dj events in one week, so I created this email flyer for them all.
DISCLAIMER: EACH and EVERY Thursday (for well over 3 years), I created some sort of quick Photoshop graphic to promote my Jazz Anew dj night (usually made during my lunch break). The basic idea was to borrow a sample image from somewhere and then change it and create a pretty neato email flyer. I made certain to manipulate the images enough so that it became an entirely new piece of artwork.Tags: 2005, dj, flyer, graphic design, jazz anew
Here are some quick flyers that I made for a NC dj collective known as ERECTRO/LOCK (get it?… Electro/Rock, spoonerism, hilarity, et cetera). A lot of this stuff gets made super-quick because there is never enough time to design it proper (and is done as a free favor), but they are ALWAYS fun.

In 2003 (like most graphic design nerds) I became obsessed with Kenzo Minami’s work. His gratuitously excessive vector designs are totally my bag. So I wanted to see what I could come up with while attempting his style of piece. I remember it took a good while to complete, but it was still a lot of fun. It was all created in Flash, because I really wanted to animate it eventually. There is just never enough time.

A flyer that I designed for our show with Bonde do Role at the Local506. Unfortunately Marina came down with some sort of throat infection and missed a few shows (including the North Carolina gig). As of this posting, they are rescheduled to play at the Local506 in mid-October. The N.C. ERECTRO/LOCK boys are again scheduled to dj as an opening act. I know they will do me proud.Tags: 2007, dj, flyer, graphic design
