SXSW 2012 was super rad. At one point, I managed to snag a photo with Bill Murray while drunk at 24 Diner with my friend Cassandra. He was with three of the squarest looking chicks in town and apparently on the rebound. Looking back, I wish we’d stolen him from them and turned the party ship around.

Golden Bear’s ‘Alive’.

hey kids! get ready for the long-awaited release of golden bear‘s new album ‘alive’, which comes out this month. this little lady had the honor of putting together the album artwork for it (based on some photos they shot in zilker park). it was an inspiring process working with lead singer chris gregory to push the possibilities of the design – eschewing the standard photo treatment for something more graphic and iconic. i also want to mention that the album was produced by the mastermind danny reisch, who has worked with the likes of shearwater, white denim and the black and white years.

you can check out a review and a video of the band here. if you’re in the austin area, come by club deville on october 29th for the official cd release party. see you there, lovers!

Think I’m going swimming tomorrow…

I have been in the cave all day working on an invitation to a huge, highly anticipated annual summer party and I think I’m going to need a few hours of swim time tomorrow to bring me back to real life. A few weeks ago, Moonpie and I went to Emma Long Park in northwest Austin and it was a dream. I took a crappy photo with my phone but it disappeared into the nether regions of my memory card so here’s someone else’s photo for your viewing pleasure:


you totes need to go swim here. emma long park, austin, texas.

Anyway, here’s a preview of the invitation i’m working on, I’ll release the whole image after the party:

Project Preview: Invitation

Speaking of invitations, I am totally available to put together an invitation|save the date card|thank you card for your next shindig. Below is an invitation I put together for the newly minted married couple Adrienne and Kenneth (of Black Bone Child). They are some of the sweetest people to grace the planet and I couldn’t be happier for them. Give me a shout at chase.maclaskey@gmail.com.

New Logo: Honeycomb Hair Boutique

I recently had the pleasure of being introduced, through a mutual friend (thanks, Diamond!), to the luminous Georgia Bramhall who is in the process of opening her own hair salon here in town. The salon is called Honeycomb, so she wanted to stay within the bounds of the hexagonal shape while giving it some personality and femininity. We went with a mandala pattern for the design as she plans to incorporate Mediterranean and Middle Eastern elements to the interior design of the salon.

We collaborated and expanded on a few original ideas to come to this final version – I think it’s lovely! Be sure to check out her new place starting in about a month. Her website is on the way!
