Creativille is celebrating its tenth anniversary by sponsoring and curating Impressed by Design: Letterpress in the Heartland at the Edwardsville Arts Center (EAC). What follows are twelve lamps that highlight work from the Creativille portfolio. The lamps are equally spaced along the existing grid of the EAC Gallery ceiling. Using lamps from CB2, we designed lampshades printed on backlit film, and wrapped each one. Under the shade, we silk-screened a caption along with the Creativille Tenth logo. Enjoy.

We are sending people to Vinexpo on Friday and need a logo pretty quick. We have come up with a couple of name. None of which I like.” Ok. By 11:30 a.m., I’ve conjured up a strong list […]

On May 8, 2009, a limited edition poster that I designed for a Garrison Starr rock performance will hang with 40 other Edwardsville High School alumni at the Edwardsville Arts Center. This is a big deal (to me). Curated by my high school art teacher, now retired Dennis DeToye, the show features artists who graduated between the years of 1942 and 2009. The poster is silk screened on reclaimed billboard vinyl. The original art was created using a sharpie on […]
