2015: Our Year in Music

It’s not a secret that 2015 has been sonically sensational. Not only have we gotten to design for some incredible musicians, but we have discovered new music that will be on repeat for a long time. We’ve seen comeback albums from bands of the past, breakthrough hits new artists and ear candy from the industry’s […]

That’s A Big Ole Peach

We recently worked with Fusion Management on a Lady Antebellum show poster that was part of the VIP ticket package. The band was performing a charity event benefitting the Ronald McDonald House in Augusta, GA at the Lady Antebellum Pavilion.

The Ghost Is Back!

Do yo-self a favor and watch this video by Y.N. RICH KIDS. It’s the best rap song in the world. SNACKS! SNACKS! SNACKS! CRUNCH! via NPR’s The Two Way Blog Oh and check out Jimmy Fallon’s Downton Sixbey if you got a minute. It’s hilarious.

Cagle Cut A Rug

Spring for many this year, consisted of avocados making a comeback, desperate mothers disappointed by the Hunger Games then inspired by 50 Shades of Gray, and Tupac conjured from the great beyond by Snoop Dogg’s hypnotic rhymes. At ST8MNT we were busy painting cowboys, and wrangling type. We had the privilege of working with Bigger Picture […]
