Our great friend Signalnoise who has been a long-time artist that we just loved featuring on ABDZ. Mostly because he looks badass but more utterly his work has inspired many others including ourselves. He is a pioneer in his craft and the man when it comes to the 80s. He has recently released a bunch of new works & collaborations coming from clients like Gunship, Metallica and more. I loved seeing the work James did for Vegas: Alter Your Reality that took nearly a year of design and development. Let's give him some thunder! More Links Personal Site Behance Instagram Illustration & Digital Art Gunship: Dark All Day I had the pleasure of working with synthwave act Gunship for the second time, working with the group in developing artwork and design for their second album 'Dark All Day'. We worked together from the ground up, building the concept, palette and overall atmosphere to capture the essence of their latest release. Praise the Sun ‘PRAISE THE SUN’... My first private commission featuring a rather legendary video game character. A Mystery Box collaboration. Metallica Tour Poster Poster design for the mighty Metallica in support of their WORLDWIRED Tour. This wonderful collaboration was made possible by Tim Doyle over at Nakatomi Inc. Magnatron 2.0 I worked with NewRetroWave to develop the branding and interior art for their Magnatron 2.0 album release, featuring music by a diverse group of synthwave artists. I developed the chrome logo to accompany the killer cover illustration by Sam Todhunter. Vegas: Alter Your Reality I had the absolute pleasure of partnering with R+R to develop a virtual reality art experience for the city of Las Vegas. This was a massive project to be involved with and took nearly a year of design and development. I was tasked with designing and art directing a 2-minute art experience in VR, in promotion of Las Vegas. Shown here is a selection of art assets I created for the team in LA to build in 3D. It was an amazing experience with loads of talented people.

This November 15th, our good friend James White from Signalnoise will be heading to Portland, Oregon for a speaking event, presented by Spaceman Design and AIGA Portland. Everything took place when James started his Gum Cards Initiative and Portland based designer Dave Hardy pledged on the fundraising as the Diamond Package. One of the prizes of the pledge was that James will be going to wherever your city and make a Design Renegade Talk. Portland was the winner! All Rights to Dave Hardy About the Event In order to reach our goals in the upside-down world of graphic design, you need to be a rogue. A misfit. A renegade. James White from the Signalnoise Studio has based his career on doing things outside of the ordinary, turning his back on boardrooms and creative briefs in order to chase his design dreams with vengeance and rock n’ roll. He will be telling his story while discussing personal projects built from love and ambition in his small home office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. These led to him working with respected people all over the world, from his favourite metal band to film juggernaut Kevin Smith. James will talk about chasing your creative path, building your personal body of work, the value of supporting friends, and never forgetting the artist inside. Being “different” isn’t enough anymore. You need to be a renegade! For more information about Dave Hardy and AIGA Portland, you can visit their websites at SpaceManDesign.com and AIGA Portland at AigaPortland.org.

Might work, might not. But if we manage to get this thing funded and wrangle the necessary interest from you nerdy design collectors out there, then the future is bright. My plan is to release a couple of cards every month featuring top creative people, and have already thought up several super fun "accompanying products" to the GUM CARDS brand. In short, this is just the beginning of the adventure.

James White is one of the most innovative designers out there and along the years he's been also an amazing supporter to Abduzeedo. The brand Signalnoise just celebrated its 12th year anniversary so we decided to feature his latest work from this designer that knows how to stay in the 'Avant-Garde' of his creations. I have been a creative person ever since I was old enough to hold a pencil at the age of 4. I started drawing on every scrap of paper I could find to the point where my mother couldn’t keep typewriter paper in the house without my finding and stealing it. For more information about James White aka Signalnoise, you can visit his blog at Blog.Signalnoise.com , be a fan on Facebook or follow him on Twitter @Signalnoise . You can also follow him on his weekly broadcasts on Thursdays at 3pm EST at Signalnoise.com/Live .
