Inspiration: Detroit!

I love Detroit. I try to visit often. There are always design related things going on, and its nice to be around all those like-minded people. 

This past weekend I finally made it down to Dearborn and The Henry Ford with my brother, Josh and my older nephews. THF is hosting a design exhibit featuring House Industries. Their typefaces and design are legendary. A super-bonus was that Aaron Draplin from Draplin Design Co. was there doing some sessions and selling his Field Notes and DDC merch. Always glad to see them out hustling. 

Here are a few photos of my favorite things from the weekend.

Gopherwood Concerts Posters 2015/2016 Season

When I started Charmellow, I had 2 clients and a half a sandwich. Just kidding, but really not much more than that. I needed to network and began volunteering for local nonprofits and event committees. I found out that I really like helping local places do a better job of getting the word out about their awesome causes. 

Gopherwood Concerts is a nonprofit that brings musicians, both local and national, to our little town. Artists such as Joshua Davis (from NBC's The Voice), Rachael Davis, Willy Porter, The Sweet Water Warblers and so many more talented peeps have graced the stage of the Cadillac Elks Lodge. I am excited to have donated my expertise to such a great cause. 

Here are a few of my favorite posters from this years series. Check them out on their Facebook Page if you feel like catching a show next season.
