Broken FM Bumper Stickers are here

Pink Broken FM Bumper Sticker

Green Broken FM Bumper Sticker

After much clamouring from the Broken FM fans and especially the DJ’s I was able to finally got around to designing the Broken FM bumper stickers. The news about the station is spreading but they felt that a couple of stickers would help their efforts plastered on cars driving around town. They are in such demand right now that 1000 of them will be snatched up in no time.

I must give credit to Leah for coming up with the design for the pink one who has amazing talent and gifting at 16 with no formal training. I took her design idea and just tweaked it a bit to send to Greater Works Printing as a two color job. The originally were going to outsource the job but decided instead to print it in house and saved Broken FM 50% off the original price quote.

This station is definitely a lot of fun to design for because it allows me to explore the grungy side of things. Its a youth radio and they demand edgy, fun and very different so that’s what they get.
By the way I like Leahs bumper sticker better, because its easier to read on the road, the big number and the outer glow make a big difference.

Norcal Spirit Christian Concert Poster Design by Costas schuler

NorCal Spirit 11×17 Poster has arrived!!!

The poster for the 1st Annual NorCal SPIRIT concert benefiting Bay Area Christian Youth programs on August 15, 2009 at Stafford Lake Park in Novato, California is finally done and sent to the printer. NorCal SPIRIT is the biggest Christian concert in the North Bay other than Spirit West Coast in Monterey CA.

On the main stage Sanctus Real, Krystal Meyers, L-Rey and Nevertheless will be performing. Donnie Moore Radical Reality will be there as well as Edogg Montana, Jesse Brewster Band and Heather Powers. There will also be a Battle of the Bands featuring local bands that will compete for a chance to open up for Sanctus Real, win cash prize and a 2-Day professional recording session at Laughing Tiger Music Production Studios.

This project was a lot of fun and I got the job through my work for Broken.FM who is promoting the upcoming event on air. The background is a combination of three images found on istock photo which I believe help capture the spiritual essence of this event. The three images are the abstract light background, the floating figure and the city, photoshoped and then imported into Illustrator for the copy treatment. In this case I used a free font called Philosopher Regular that I found on one of my favorite font websites called abstract fonts.
