07.01.14 // Welcome to the Dylan Rupert Design Blog, or, THE DLOG, I guess?

I have a blog now, sweet deal. Here are some updates from the lapdesk of Dylan Rupert Design:

1. I have graduated with lots of bruises & some symbols next to my name from California College of the Arts. Four years, two towns, five homes, and one BFA in Individualized Studies later… Gratitude towards my advisors for allowing me to do this creative direction design/writing/time-based mad-lady scheme. I think it was the best chunk of college I could have ever dreamed of biting off. Yum.

2. DRD has vacated San Francisco and is currently shredding up and down the west coast with a ferocious freedom & lots of energy put towards free-dreaming. These dreams are now taking the form of pitches and proposals, so check your email! Today, I’m: freelancing in Seattle, wrapping up my tenure as Boogalooist & Resident Art-Doer with Total Trash Productions in Oakland, drafting some Los Angeles concepts (not-not considering Episoda issue 2?). Where will I go next?

3. Look out for the Pitchfork Review issue 3 this summer, a new cut of my Burgerland essay is running alongside some stunning visuals by Cali DeWitt & Burger’s own Steele O’Neal.

4. Designed a new round of product designs for Mercantile 12 which will be launching in the next coming weeks. Stay tuned, wineheads!

Here’s something just for fun (as if the above isn’t?). My first DJ night is tonight, at the one and only Linda’s! Ba-da bing. Flyer below.

happy summer.
