Bráulio Amado is an illustrator/designer from Portugal. Thanks for the submit.
Jaunted Haunts Press was founded in 2008 by Righard Kapp, in an effort to formalise the output of his \/#/ cd-r imprint, which in itself was a continuation of where his original One Minute Trolley Dash label left off. Within three years the label’s output has grown to 5 albums, all of which have received considerable acclaim from respected writers such as Richard Haslop and Lloyd Gedye.
The label aims to release music that will stand the test of time, from singular artists who dare to follow their own creative path. Physical releases are packaged in limited edition silkscreened sleeves, while as of late the music is also available in digital format, not so limited edition.
One of my earliest influences in design is none other than Tae Won Yu. His work for the Olympia, WA music scene circa the 90′s showed me design could be both playful and expressive. Looking at his work challenged me to break down boundaries I was taught in school. From Built to Spill’s ‘Perfect From Now On’ to Versus latest release, ‘On the One’s and Threes’, Tae continues to remind me why I love to do what I do.
Brittny Badger wrote in with some really nice design, illustration, and disassembled household appliance art. These photos are from her “senior thesis project at the hartford art school this past year…i took apart used cooking/cleaning appliances, and arranged their interior parts very systematically on a white sheet of bristol board. my intention was to explore the hidden “brains” of these appliances; allowing us to view these everyday objects from a new perspective.”
