I was working late at the office last night when I got a message from my friend DJ Ayres. I've worked on a considerable number of graphic design projects for Ayres over the last few years, more than I can count on both hands, and he keeps up with my other design work just as I do with his music projects. He sent me a link to the Facebook page of a young DJ named Nate Starr living in Springfield MO. This DJ's profile picture was an exact replica of the "Jump On It" EP cover I designed for Minneapolis DJ and producer Last Word.

Thanks to everyone who tuned in to our very first Spotlight Series interview with James White. We're picking up right now with episode two, shining the spotlight on our friend Justin Thomas Kay. Justin first came into our radar in 2004 when he phoned up the Burlesque office to ask us to create an editorial illustration of rapper Common to be featured in Complex magazine. From there, we quickly fell in love with his type and design skills and we've stayed in touch over the years, collaborating on several projects under his art direction. Read on!

I really enjoyed designing my recent poster for The National's two-night run at Philadelphia's Academy of Music. From the moment I started looking at that 150+ year old building and thinking about all that history in Philadelphia, I got down to sketching out some ideas.
The first thing I looked at was the building. Built in 1857 right in the heart of downtown Philadelphia, the Academy of Music houses the city's ballet and operas among other high profile music and arts events. Read More
