Just got this photo of the 10inch vinyl I designed for Elk Beats first 10inch release. Originally I thought we were going to do the usual black vinyl but pre-sales for it went so well that the label decided to a few more runs, adding a clear and a gold option, which makes want to see them in person like yesterday. They look so tasty!Check out the original design, which includes both label and sleeve.

Just finished designing and shooting the new 5 Panel camo hats for Dataset Clothing. One of my favorite hats so far.

Don’t Call it Content

Recently, for some strange reason, Live Visual Artists / VJs started using the term ‘content’ to describe their ability to develop tailor-made motion graphics for a specific artist or client.

I believe the term “Content”, on top of sounding bland and  generic does little to help differentiate your work from anyone else’s, besides,  by accepting and using this term (most likely created by some corporate marketing guy ,with zero appreciation for good design) you alone are devaluating your craft by positioning your artwork on the same category used to describe the accumulated lint on a clothing dryer machine.

Think about it, the term “Content” means un-important, indifferent, secondary, meaningless, optional, unknown, worthless, trivial, replaceable, ubiquitous, etc.

We as visual designers are selling ourselves short by accepting and using this term to describe our work, we spend countless hours passionately dedicating a big part of our life to this vocation we love and respect and before we even start to work on a project we can’t come up with a better way to empower our talent? 

Whenever someone asks me if I can create “content” I politely reply:
"Yes, I can design and animate graphics", or Sure, I’m a graphic artist and I can do motion work" I’m still testing out how to describe this particular skill, but it already feels better than using "content".

Some photos from our Basspod stage take over during EDC Las Vegas, while during live visuals for Netsky.

Some progress on the new #BassMusic visuals kit I’m working on for #EDC. The typography arrangements, are segments that I transcribed from an old interview with Rob Playford where he described the workflow he had w/ #Goldie on “Timeless”. These loops will be available for free download soon after the festival is done. #AccentCreative
