Classic City Rollergirls

Classic City Rollergirls

What’s better than badass women on roller skates? Being married to one of them.

Naturally, I was happy to help out Athens Georgia’s professional roller derby team, the Classic City Rollergirls, with their promotions. Here are a few examples:

There were only loose brand guidelines, so I referenced existing materials to guide my hand: the logo, team colors, and previous poster designs accessed from the Classic City Rollergirls Archive.

Oddly enough, I had to be careful with the “punk rock” aesthetic that many associate with roller derby, as it is becoming phased out. Since the sport is leaving its adolescence, many teams are opting for a more “pro sports” aesthetic to establish themselves among other professional leagues.

Portfolio Piece - Puerto Rico Aid for Dookie Platters

Puerto Rican Relief Flyer

This is a pro-bono flyer I did to aid Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria. The dance night was organized by “Atlanta’s deejay and friend,” DJ Dookie Platters. Here is how he explained it on his Instagram.

I noticed a few friends have set up donation drop-off points to gather goods for hurricane relief efforts and I thought I’d set up another way to help. Drop your donations off Friday night at @elmyrbar (right into my car our front) and l’ll drive them up Saturday morning to @buenprovechoatl in Marietta. They’ll be making arrangements to ship supplies where relief is needed.

On the various social media posts, we even included an accompanying image to clarify what to do, showing off Dookie’s sweet station wagon. Really though, the guy has a big heart.

#SaveWRAS Movement

Many Atlantans remember “Album 88,” or WRAS Atlanta, Georgia State University’s student-run radio station. You may also remember its demise as we knew it in 2014, when Georgia Public Broadcasting (GBP) strategically stole the airwaves from the student DJs.

The public was outraged. Station supporters went to social media with the hashtag #SaveWRAS and waged war with peaceful protests, a press conference and a benefit concert named WRAS-stravaganza. I was involved in many of these efforts, as well the designs that accompanied them. Sadly, on June 2, 2014, the contract with GPB went into effect.

WRAS was once widely regarded as an Atlanta staple, where many artists got their first big exposure — a list spanning four decades that includes the B-52s, REM, Deerhunter, Outkast, Collective Soul, and the Indigo Girls. Broadcasting at 100,000 watts, it was the most powerful student-run radio station in the nation.

I was the last music director before the GPB takeover. For three years, I selected the songs heard in the station’s album-based regular rotation. I also hosted Soul Kitchen, a Saturday night soul and funk show, as DJ Freight Train. I met many close friends and made some of my fondest college memories while working at Album 88.

Dumpster Dive

Dumpster Dive

Dumpster Dive was a free outdoor concert in downtown Atlanta organized by WRAS Atlanta. It got its name from its unusual venue — a road beneath Courtland St. (Collins St.) literally in front of some dumpsters. It featured performances by TV Dinner, TWINS, and Blunt Fang.

I illustrated the four Dumpster Dive rats and used them any chance I got, such as these handout and poster designs. We even screen-printed limited edition t-shirts.

I also produced the radio promo, where I voiced a few twisted rats.
