PRINT / CONTENT / FUNDRAISING
I’ve had the honor of working with public radio station KEXP over the years. As both an Art Director and Creative Director. As a music lover, they unleash some of my personal passion and have become a bit of a pet project for me over the years.
I started my relationship with KEXP by creating a series of posters highlighting the breadth of music played by KEXP and encouraging people to explore new music. Each poster had 2 bands with different musical styles but names that related to each other. We used this idea to create over 25 posters. Working with Digital Kitchen, we animated the posters to create a video that aired at the Seattle International Film Festival. It became the visual language for KEXP for quite some time.
As KEXP moved into a new ‘home’ - I worked with lead designer, Patrick Toste and team to freshen up the brand and refocusing on what makes KEXP such an amazing station: discovering new music.
In a meeting with KEXP, my partner Jacob Baas and I threw out an idea to package the best live studio performances every year and sell them as a fundraising mechanism. They loved the idea and the Live at KEXP Annual Compilation has been going for over 10 years now - giving fans some of the best live music from the year and making a bit of money along the way.
I’ve also worked with them on small but important things like annual reports. The one we created in 2015 was the most interesting. A long scrolling landing page with embedded video and animation. You can check it out at http://annualreport.kexp.org/2015/
