David Rhoden: Design work
I'm only rarely called upon to do graphic design; mostly I just draw the pictures. But occasionally it falls to me to organize the words as well. And I've done a lot of what you might call graphic design production, working with style guides or talented designers to produce promotional materials and publications.
Here are a few examples or my graphic design work.
Three Ring Circus monthly schedule
I did these circus-inspired calendars for monthly events at a New Orleans art gallery.
Sweet Science movie promo poster and postcard
I did the illustrations and designed the promo materials for this film (that so far hasn't been made) in which Albert Einstein and palooka Gerry Cooney inexplicably (or maybe explicably, I dunno) switch brains and still save the world.
Hurray For The Riff Raff
I did all the design and coding for this responsive website for a major-label recording artist.
It's a custom theme built on top of a Wordpress back end.Go to the Hurray For The Riff Raff site

The Hi-Balls "Tube Or Not Tube" sleeve
silkscreened show poster and vinyl stickers
I silkscreened about five of these onto wood panels (sold out), and then, with help from friends, we printed several hundred big vinyl stickers by ganging the job on the end of a bus wrap printout. The paper cutter we used to slice them was about twelve feet long.
The Hi-Balls "Love Music" sleeve
The Hi-Balls "Feel Good Rock and Roll" 7" sleeve
Cover for the Hi-Balls Love Music 7". Swiped from Bazzini Nuts' "Nut Club" peanut packaging.
It wasn't so much that we had no ideas, what happened was we had a line on a really cheap printer, it was a menu printer on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn with an offset press that they didn't bother to register. We needed a design where the registration hardly mattered. Each finished product was actually unique.
