Wax on Felt just chose the two bands we’re going to sign next year, Suncastles, a new band from Emerson, and we’re resigning Amory Siverston.
The Art Director position is still up in the air and will be until we come back to school, but for now we’re hoping to get in touch with the bands over the summer to come up with some ideas for album covers and also come up with a new logo for Wax on Felt, which will be part of our rebranding project.
I’m trying to get a google wave account for whoever is going to be involved in the production of the album artwork for Amory Sivertson’s album as well as the Blue Rhonda’s, because I thought it would be easier via an email thread between the art department and the artists. if you need an account let me know!
For those of you who couldn’t make it to the art department meeting last Thursday, here is what you missed:
1. We need to be working on flyers for the next cabaret show.I would LOVE it if you guys could each try to make ONE FLYER. It’s actually a really cool thing to see something you produced up and all over campus.Anyways, here’s the info you need to know:
There are three main groups playing. In order of appearance, Atoms and Eyes, The Grownup Noise, and Ferris Wheel. All acts can be found on myspace. Check em out! The show will begin at 8. The show will be hosted by Roger and Collin, head of viral marketing. Collin will be playing a few 90’s tunes in between each set. We will also be giving out wax tshirts to the first that can name which song he plays.
The show is on October 27th. You can put just the basics in, or whatever else you want to include. You also MUST include an email address, which in this case you should email@example.com.I would love love love to have all these flyers to me as soon as possible, but at the very latest,Tuesday night at midnight, please. We will be printing them off and assigning people to hang them up at the meeting on Wednesday. You will NOT have to do this if you make one of the flyers.
2. The Blue Rhonda artwork
We’re trying to work on a new look for the Blue Rhonda, for album art, logo, website graphics, etc. This isn’t something that needs to be taken care of immediately, but if we could start brainstorming some ideas for any of those things or if you feel like you just want to mess around in photoshop with maybe an album cover, logo, etc., it would be really appreciated.Here are their websites:
If anyone wants to learn how to use photoshop, let me know. I would gladly sit down for you for a half hour or so in a computer lab and teach you how. Feel free to tell me, and we can get something set up. I want everyone to be able to to feel able to complete the work I’m asking you to complete for the year. It’s not a big deal if you’re not even interested in the graphic design aspect or don’t feel like learning how to use photoshop, there will be other things for you to do.
If each of you just put in a little bit of time on any of these tasks, it would make my job so much easier. And the more time you put in, the more likely you are to get a non-tuition credit, which is like making money because it’s a credit you don’t have to pay for later on. At Emerson, the cost per credit hour is currently $919. If you earn a non-tuition credit through Wax on Felt, it’s like getting that for free. I’ll see you guys on Wednesday night. Remember, the next art department meeting is Thursday, October 29th at 8pm. Please email me if you have any questions at all.
