Chicago-based artist Kirk asked me to develop the visual identity for his first EP, Have A Great Summer! As a DJ and music producer, most of his prior work leans toward electronic and hip-hop music. However, this project showcases his skills as a singer, guitar player, and one-man band.
With a title inspired by the classic, 90s yearbook sign-off "HAGS" and a process that included Kirk programing (rather than playing) the drums and additional instrumentation, I found space to incorporate subtle humor and surrealism.
In this work you'll find interesting camera perspectives, oddly enlarged ligaments, and a hyper vibrant take on 90's color palettes. Think Windows 95 translated to 4K, or a next generation version of the Disney Channel Original Movie title sequence. We had a ton of fun with this one.
