NASA is giving away free posters! The creative visual strategists at JPL, known as “The Studio,” created a fantastic series of 14 posters. These retro style posters were created by a team of 9 artists, designers, and illustrators. The subject started with exoplanets — planets orbiting other stars — to celebrate NASA’s study of them.
Published in some of the top magazines including Maxim, FHM and Esquire, OG Foto (#ogfoto) is one of the top glamor photographers. With popular social networks, OG Foto needed some modern branding, and I delivered 😉
On the Run Since ’91, not without a break or two. Blunt is back is biz thanks to Ian and yours truly 😉 I just couldn’t stand not seeing Blunt still in business. It wasn’t a matter of brand or style, but management, or lack there-of. I played a big role in part-deux, but things where out of my control when it came down to it. I didn’t make the final call or decisions. C’est la vie. So I’m looking on the bright side and coming at it with a positive attitude. I’ve been archiving for a couple months now and will be doing that for the better part of summer. We still have lots of cool stuff to liquidate, and a hand-full of cool new designs in the works. Check back for updates cause I’ll have some.
T-Shirt designs, website, social networks and general direction for Skuffmarx Skateboards/Apparel. An important recognized addition to Skuffmarx was the word BRAND. I introduced it to the first batch of designs and it stuck.
The initial design and direction was skateboard streetwear and inspired by 1990’s spoof graphics that mimic real brands.
During work on the second batch of designs, it was decided to move the style to graffiti-art designs.

Overseas National Airlines (ONA) was essentially a charter air carrier. It started in 1950 and it ceased operations on September 14, 1978. Among their former stewardesses was, Arnelle Meyer, now Author and Blogger who is writing about her experiences including two crashes, one major crash in a DC-10 at JFK.
I’m excited to have been chosen to design her book cover, but in the meantime we’re doing other stuff. This includes a postcard, T-Shirt design and Mouse Pads. All going to former employees and fans of this classic airline.
First, I had to recreate the ONA logo with illustrator. There was no other way around it. Luckily, i found a matching font that closely resembled theirs, that saved a ton of work and time.
When i mentioned I was printing custom mouse pads, i was asked, “people still use them?” In fact, yes and much more than one thinks. Even a ‘smart’ mouse needs a mouse pad to effectively work. So custom mouse pads are still a great promotional item and create a buzz.
If you’re a roller ball user like myself, there’s no need for mouse pads, but they’re still cool and make great gifts!
By 1997 artists like Moby and Prodigy were being billed as the Next Big Thing for a music industry looking to replace grunge. Raves from Rotella’s Insomniac — as well as Go Ventures, B3 Cande and Fresh Produce — reached new heights – Pasquale Rotella
