Work Hard, Play Hard

WORK HARD, PLAY HARD Lunch Atop A Skyscraper Design Work Hard, Play Hard I just got back from Ibiza, an island off the coast of Spain known the world over for it’s – shall we say – atypically populated theme parks, and it was fucking amazing. Not because of all the reading I caught up on, or because of how hydrated I stayed literally the entire time, or even because of all that low-income affordable housing we were able to build for the surprisingly large population of homeless nuns and kittens inhabiting the island… anyone buying that? Bueller? No, it

TOUBAB KREWE

TOUBAB KREWE I designed the 2010 TOUBAB KREWE album entitled TK2. Available on Amazon and streaming on Spotify. Blending American and West African influences into a sound all its own, Toubab Krewe has set “a new standard for fusions of rock ‘n’ roll and West African music” (Afropop Worldwide). Since forming in 2005, the magnetic instrumental quintet has won a diverse and devoted following at performances everywhere from Bonnaroo to the legendary Festival of the Desert in Essakane, Mali, the most remote festival in the world. The band developed their unique sound over the course of numerous extended trips to Mali, Guinea, and Ivory

Colored Pencil Art

Where the fuck did the time go? And other stupid fucking questions. Many many years ago, when I was but a young, rather husky lad with a British accent and a perfectly groomed, helmet-sized bouffant haircut that made aaallll the ladies say, “oh my god… is that little fat girl ok?”, I was a very different kind of artist. Back before everyone was vaping Whiteclaws while not driving their self-driving Teslas, or sliding gluten-free memes into bae’s DMs, or making twerking Tik-Tok videos to Lizzo songs; back when we had to wait a week for every next episode, back when

The one where Jash drank all the gin.

WHAT THE FUCK IS FUNNY GRAPHIC DESIGN?  I do not have a design style of my own you guys. I never really have. If you’ve ever seen more than a couple of the self-indulgent, fever-dream digital diary entries I shamelessly refer to as “artwork” you’ll know that, like an 11 year old playing chess with ADD and parents who are vehemently in denial about it, I’m all over the board. Like Columbus with Stevie Wonder as ship’s navigator, I’m all over the map. Like the band One Direction if it’s most famous member was abducted by a gaggle of screaming

A SIGN OF THINGS TO COME

We here at GNT Branding are serious about getting our brand out there and having our design skills taken seriously.  So, to that end, we recently sent 200 college students, all jacked up on Adderall and hopes of a better tomorrow, to the Hollywood Hills sign with a single mission… To tear that bitch down and put our sign up instead. Now some of you might be thinking to yourselves, “Jash… this stunt is at best unlikely to drive traffic to your website, but rather it will end in criminal charges for you as well as all the poor tweaked

First ever client/designer meeting about logo design.

First ever client/designer meeting about logo design. Pharaoh: Yo scribe, I need a way to communicate to the people that I’m literally always right, that the Gods totally carved me out of a solid block of awesome, and that everyone should fear me and do exactly what I say! What’s up!? Scribe: Umm… Ok, I can like, try to invent a written language that over time would provide shared meaning and structure to these key concepts you’d like to describe. Pharaoh: Yeah, dope! But like, make it all in picture form so that all I have to do is put

AVENGERS: ENDGAME POSTER

AMERICANS: ENDGAME POSTER democratically edited for 2020 The first time I saw the poster for Avengers: Endgame was right after Uncle Joe got in the race. As soon as I saw this beast of an advertisement, characteristically characterized by dozens of Marvel characters, my mind immediately went to the ever-growing field of Democratic contenders for the 2020 presidential nomination. Superimposing all their faces atop the Avengers was an obvious play… I was only able to fit about 70% of the candidates onto the poster before running out of Avengers. There were more Dems running than there were Avengers in the
