• Pearlene
    Graphic and Identity Design

    Working over several years with Cincinnati’s blues rock juggernauts, Pearlene, I’ve had the opportunity to develop a full range of marketing and merchandise materials. Their powerful sound (along with some of the expected rock machismo) sparked the concept of a bull as a repeating icon. Another identity features a tongue-tied dapper gentleman who can only utter one word, and a variety of  posters—bothscreen-printed and digitally output—were created to reflect their dirty blues grit.

  • This poster was produced to announce a performance in which Pearlene would be joined by several other local musician friends. The concept of group baptism relates to their Southern blues sound and the influence of peers. The stars  align to form a “dipper”–a pun on the notion of baptism.
