AMERICANA MUSIC FEST  

EVENT BRAND DESIGN

Live music is a sensory experience. The sounds, the lights, the drinks and of course the atmosphere. A sense of place is an essential componant to any succesful music festival. 

With the Americana Music Fest being held in the charming Midwest town of Three Oaks, Michigan, I looked to the environment itself for inspiration on how to bring the visual aspects of the fest to life.

Referencing some snapshots I took of old signage, the texture of the Acorn Theatre itself,  and the colors of the small town landscape I built  custom lettering and the eagle logo that formed the centerpiece of the fest’s visual identity.

A FEW THINGS 


ABOUT ME


FATHER OF TWO • AQUARIUS • ASPIRING WIZARD


Hi, I'm Ryan. I've been developing top rail artwork for rock bands, dive bars, and other renegades and scoundrels since 2007.

I’m visually driven and love to create.  I’ve been utilizing my art and design background to make lots of cool stuff for at least 12 years – key illustrations, product design, events, brand identity, packaging, multimedia social content and high-level strategic concepts.

I’m passionate about this stuff and I’m very much at home with a large team – partnering with large CPG brands on huge promotions. But I get true satisfaction by helping upstarts craft their voice through hand-crafted design and illustration.

Lately I’ve been inspired by vintage fantasy artwork, the North American wilderness, disco music and old beer cans.

Let's make some stuff together!

Why Outrider?
An outrider is someone who rides ahead to make sure that the rest of the group is ok. They look outward to the horizon and chart new territory. They’re someone who might go alone and take a unique path but always has the safety and wellbeing of the group in mind. Outrider is my ethos for the art I create. To be adventerous and new while holding space for everyone in your heart.
