DEREK ON THE COVERS!

From Derek Ballard, VAD Graphic Design alumnus:

“I love cycling and I love print! I feel so lucky that I had the opportunity to contribute a cover illustration to BONESHAKER MAGAZINE. I just stumbled upon this well executed video about the magazine, that has some nice shots of Issue 16, with the cover I illustrated.”

The SLUG MAG Bike Issue hit the streets today. I had the privilege of designing the cover. Snatch one up to get the lowdown on Salt Lake City bicycle happenings.”

Congratulations Derek on your striking yellow cover illustration. BTW, that’s Derek’s wife, Brighton, on the bike! And… another one on SLUG!

From Craft Lake City:

“The Craft Lake City DIY (Do-It-Yourself) Festival was formed in 2009 by Angela H. Brown, editor and publisher of SLUG Magazine (Salt Lake UnderGround), as a way to showcase local DIY (do it yourself) culture.

Since then, Craft Lake City has expanded the DIY Festival to become the state’s largest, local-centric, two-day arts festival, with over 200 local artisans, a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) Building, two stages for musical and dance performances, local food vendors, food trucks and hosting over 40,000 festival attendees.

Furthermore, the organization seeks to enhance Utah’s DIY arts culture by broadening the definition of “craft”  to encompass all things handmade – including craft food, STEM and DIY engineers (electronic makers).”
