Hate Theory III – Album Art

New artwork for local legends Hate Theory’s new album “III”. After fifteen years of hiatus the band is coming out of the grave for another album and show. I wanted to represent that awakening as well as incorporate a form of royalty as Hate Theory is one of the most important bands in my life as well as the local Kent metal scene.

Who’s Your Mama Festival

Downpour Creative recently designed the collateral for Kent Standing Rock’s “Who’s Your Mama Festival”

The theme for this year was conservation and extinction. We wanted to focus on some animals that are going extinct or had already gone extinct. We dug up some very old educational images and got to work.

Flyer 10

Remember when I said we used to google search random things and make terrible flyers. Well, here is an example of an extremely terrible flyer I made.

Skies Bleed Black Flyer

Obviously Danny Tanner did not present anything. And the spacing in the type is atrocious. The typography itself is atrocious. The whole flyer is atrocious. We played this show at The Orange Street. Which one you ask? Anyone who was in the Kent/Akron music scene had to know about the Orange Street. I think there were three of them? No, four. Four. This show was played at the one on Main Street that was located next to building and painted orange. The one with a 7 foot ceiling and poles everywhere. Anywho, that’s that for that flyer. That.
