The Adventures of Dash Cloudrider – Title Art

For TADC, we wanted to keep the aesthetic as retro and organic feeling as possible which is why rather than doing the easy thing by creating the title art digitally, prop designer Sheri pushed for tangible crafting to create a title that would match the aesthetics of the ships.

"Gingers in Love: A New Folk Musical" Pedestals

Pedestals – Branded Crates

Gingers in Love: A New Folk Musical was an original comedy play by Brian Waters with musical score by Erik Kopacsi, modeled as a modern “hipster” parody of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The “pedestal” designs were inspired by which Gingers character was which Shakespeare character, and branded appropriately in jest.   Buttons the CatThe PainulatorAsteroid Rider – 22″
