Local coffee roaster Murara asked me to design the logo, business card, and website. Unfortunately he never came through with starting his coffee business, but i think it’s a stellar logo.

The ultra-talented, spirited, super nice singer Monique Bingham is on stage at various places around the globe and I made a website and a t‑shirt that is on sale at her gigs. Here, she is with DJ Black Coffee on a South Africa tour.

Pecha Kucha means Shaw-and-Tell in Japanese. The event with this name was founded by the architects Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham in Tokyo. PechaKucha’s 20x20 presentation format shows your 20 chosen images, each for 20 seconds. So you can present 20 slides and get 20 secs to talk about each slide. Here is my presentation at Cafe Deluxe in Roponghi:

An underground movement founded on electronic dance music and a utopian vision, the global phenomenon is known as rave culture has proven a well-spring of some wildly innovative graphic design. This valuable sourcebook, featuring the very best examples of club flyers created to promote raves, is unrivaled in documenting the distinctive visual style of the American techno scene. The book provides a brief overview of the history of the American rave scene, explores how graphic sensibilities vary regionally, and chronicles the progression of styles, forms, and means of production in flyer design, from crude photocopy to extravagant five-color foldout. Artistically inspiring, this book is also a record of the parties themselves, as the flyers include dates, locations, and names of DJs, bands, promoters, and sponsors.
The Earth Program is a New York-based multimedia firm that owns two record labels, produces rave events, and specializes in high-tech graphic design.
