Advertising Design for the historic Antone’s

garyAfter completing my AmeriCorps program, I extended by time in Austin, Texas working as a contracted graphic artist for the Antone’s Austin nightclub venue.

I was a freelance Advertising Designer for the Antone’s, Austin TX.

I designed all printed advertising materials for the iconic Austin blues venue. On a weekly basis, I would communicate and coordinate with the incoming talent and event management companies and created advertisements for the incoming performers at Antone’s. This included such blues artists as B.B. King, Pinetop Perkins, Jimmie Vaughan, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Gary Clark Jr., and Cage the Elephant. These are samples of my poster work. Completion time for each poster was done in 1 to 3 hours.

Additionally, the last thumbnail shows a weekly full page ad showing 25-30 scheduled shows. This ad would then be forwarded to The Austin Chronicle for prepress and printed in their weekly publication.

Additionally, I was the advertising point person for special events including Austin City Limits Festival and South By Southwest (SXSW).
