Something about straws & camels backs.

Oh, The Dead Rise Old Bay Cookbook.

Say what you will about people that drink with any regularity, but they aren't widely regarded as the most consistent or dependable people. As with everything during my tenure at Flying Dog Brewery, this project was way more of a headache than it was probably worth, but being that we had done a previous cookbook a few years prior that I wasn't 100% happy with, I wanted to knock this one out of the park.

I'm really happy with the end result. Jay Fleming and Tim Martin did an outstanding job with the photography and altogether its an incredibly beautiful finished product.

If anything good came out of this project, it gave me that final push to take the initiative and get a job that I'm passionate about. Sometimes a slap in the face is all you need to wake up.


Reveling in past glories

A few years ago, Flying Dog Brewery wanted to take a crack at an open source beer project that would supply the basic ingredients for some of our most popular beers and make kits available to the public to take a crack at brewing them.  The below label/logo was used on all the kits.


You just gotta keep livin' man, L-I-V-I-N.

We're now entering year four of the Flying Dog Movie Series at the Weinberg Center, and each year I try to do a little fine tuning to a pretty straight-forward take on the minimalist poster design genre. Taking the "fucked-up and photocopied" style I've come to love and use frequently, I felt the most representative image I could take from "Dazed and Confused" was taking Slater's words of If you're gonna sign that paper man. you should throw a little grass right in the middle, man. Roll it up, sign the joint, man, and bringing it to life.

The movie runs at the Weinberg Center in Frederick, MD on September 25th. TICKETS HERE
