WE TALK ABOUT “BEING BUSY” ALL THE TIME: Well here’s a project we worked up this summer with the boys from Richmond Fontaine, right here in Portland, Oregon.

The packaging for their latest release, “We Used To Think The Freeway Sound Like A River.”

Check it out here in our “Work” section.

And why this one is so special to me is because of one reason: I’ve been a fan of these guys for years. Since 1995! Long before I ever met Willy. So, all gushing aside, to roll up the sleeves for Willy and the boys was sort of a WAS a dream project for me. Honestly. The album hit the record stores yesterday, and man, I can’t wait to see it out there doing its job on the shelves. Can’t wait. So proud of this one.

It was an absolute pleasure going to bat for them. Got to know Willy in the process, and loved each piece I got to make for it.

- Decor records digipak for the United Kingdom
- Diverse Vinyl record version. (Can’t wait to get my hands on this!)

All in all, I’m just really, really thankful for the opportunity. Thanks, fellas! See you at the record release at Dante’s this Friday!
