Big KRIT RLT Logo Project Process November 2nd, 2012
It may come as a surprise to some but we here at MAKE. are huge hip hop fans, like huge huge. For example, one of us can acapella rap the lyrics to Eminem’s ‘B. Rabbit v. Papa Doc’ (Abby) and the other listens to an unhealthy amount of hip hop (Jesse, I love the stuff). That being said, when we received word that we had the opportunity to do some logo design work for Big K.R.I.T., who has frequented our airwaves constantly for the past 2 years, we were elated to say the least! Below we will take you through some of the logo design process, show some of the presented concepts and disclose a bit about how the project panned out. Sadly, it wasn’t good.ShareThis

Big Dammit ‘Astro’ Album and Poster July 11th, 2012
Vinyl & silkscreen, living the dream! The guys from Big Dammit did their damn thing on this one. The “Astrodome/Astroworld” 7-inch, pressed on orange vinyl, is a 2 song record that tells the childhood story of the rise and eventual fall of its one-time ’8th wonder of the world’ namesake. Additionally, as some of you Chicagoans may have seen around town, the album art was re-worked into a sexy silkscreen poster to promote the release show at Ace Bar.
Evan EP February 28th, 2012
Remember the name ‘Evan Haughey’, some day he will become a household name. On the heels of the success his band Hero Jr.’s self-titled EP (seen here), Evan released his previously shelved, also self-titled solo EP. Although the music involves some very personal issues for Evan, it supplied some great inspiration and background for design. Take a closer look below.
