Combining Design Aesthetics
Big Slide Records has been revolutionary in making a name for itself in Seattle. Not only does it boast a roster of supreme talent, but it has expanded its vision outside of its own niche by collaborating with other labels to host events and showcase upcoming talent.
Most recently, Big Slide and LuckyMe came together on an event with headliners Clara La San & SuicideYear, supported by acts from Big Slide. Big Slide's ability to stay authentic and connect to it's local roots through other events such as 'Friendsy' while rubbing shoulders with giant players will continue to make BSR the success that it has become.
The design problem for events such as these is to figure out how to best combine aesthetics. For example, BSR's visual identity combines pattern, texture, and clean minimal layouts. On the other hand, LuckyMe's aesthetic is more experimental and bold. For the poster for the two labels' collaboration, I aimed to distill elements from both brands.

Incorporating photos from the artists' Instagram pages since they were more compelling than studio shots, CDD edited them to get a consistent background and color.
