THE SKELETON CLUB


Recently completed this series of logo’s for Adelaide band ‘The Skeleton Club’. The designs will be used for merchandise this year and printed one colour on tee’s and crew neck jumpers. The guys have created a truly unique and exciting sound so far in TSC and they wanted artwork that represented their personality well without pigeon holing them. if you are intrigued to hear what it’s all about head over to listen and download a couple of tracks from http://www.triplejunearthed.com/theskeletonclub. Great band to keep an eye on in the future.

SKINNY BOULDER WIP

Decided to throw up a bit of a Work In Progress post on this last job of mine before the holidays. Bit of logo work for a new beer label startup being based out of the United States with ingredients sourced locally and from an area of Canada. Going for the real indie feel and playing on the north america/canada vibes…

ALL YEAR ROUND SINGLE ARTWORK

All Year Round - Story of our lives cover
Cover artwork we recently completed for Adelaide Pop-Punk band All year Round. There is a lot I like about this design, the simplicity, the symmetrical nature of the layout, the colors and the fact that I didn’t base the design around a book cover/pages/story theme. Single coming to iTunes in January.

THE COVER THAT NEVER RAN

The month before I headed off to New Zealand was spend developing and designing this concept with Adelaide band Some Time Soon. It was refreshing for a band in the pop/punk scene wanting to go for a different approach to their image and artwork and not just blindly follow trends. It was a fun project and I’m sad to find out that the band has just called it a day and the EP and artwork will never be officially released as it was planned. I thought it a shame for it to go to waste so here it is anyway. The cover that never ran – Just Pretend.

MADISON ‘TROUBLE’ PHOTO SERIES


I shot and put together this series of 4 images for the lead up to the launch of Melbourne band Madison’s upcoming single ‘Trouble’. The images show band members in a thoughtful/troubled state coupled with corresponding lyrics from the song as well as the tagline for the single. The song is due out late September.

SUMATRA, INDONESIA


A few days ago I returned from a surf trip in Southern Sumatra, Indonesia. The place is amazing, a real surfers paradise. Was by far the best trip I have done surfing or otherwise, the area, the people and the surf were beyond amazing. I took along a 1970′s Olympus Trip 35mm film camera to capture some of the sights and memories. Here is a selection of my favourite pics from the rolls. Hope you enjoy this small look into my time there…

THE MADISON HOUSE


Shot this promo pic for Madison on the way back from an Adelaide trip for a show. I was scouting out possible locations the whole drive up and on the way back we stopped at a few, had an old run down service station, a farm hut and this place. This place was by far the best, such a great backdrop and character. The inside was scary as shit. Shot with Nikon D7000 and Nikor 18-105mm Lens. PS edit.
