KMFDM 2013 promo poster

KMFDM TOUR POSTER (War Bus)

As part of their promotional campaign for their upcoming tour, industrial group KMFDM commissioned me to come up with something appropriate.

Inspired by WW1 armoured mini tanks and modern anti-riot vehicles, I set about creating a hybrid more suited to the band’s image than the traditional tour bus. After creating a collage of elements in Photoshop, I then warped and re-shaped the chassis before re-drawing the finished product in ink. Final artwork layers composed in Illustrator.


ATOMIC Hard Wear logo.

I’ve been working for clothing company Atomic Hard Wear for most of this year, designing logos and animations for their web site and merchandising line. Ray, the owner, wanted an atomic symbol as the main graphic so we spent a few weeks toying with various versions before deciding on this industrial-looking, bolted girder effect.

Get on their Facebook group for all the pre-launch news and samples of the merchandise.

Logo for Texas Blood Money

My logo for Canadian band, Texas Blood Money (don’t ask), inspired in part by the iconic RKO film ident. Created in Illustrator.

Available as T-shirts from their site soon.
