The class is more informational on the process of creating a label design rather than a step by step tutorial. I still enjoyed it though-- However, since I'm still learning, I would really prefer more instruction on how to actually make a label using illustrator or photoshop.
Where's your jacket?
As a New York native, I have been under the influence of corporate mass marketing and inspirational street art since my first breath. Not surprisingly, I have garnered considerable attention for my unique approach to design utilizing hand-drawn lettering and typographic illustration in conjunction with a modern yet minimalistic sensibility.
I received numerous accolades for my fusion of old and new world aesthetics and continue to influence modern trends in graphic design and apparel design.
I reside in New York with my wife Erin and daughter Fiona where I work as a freelance illustrator, and also as Co-Founder and Creative Director of menswear brand CXXVI Clothing Company.
