Life in a Rural Town

Design & Architecture, Journal, Photography, TravelJesse WalkerComment

I'm just returning from a four day trip to Green River, Utah for a Summer Summit with CUAC director Adam Bateman where I played at an alien themed party with Rob Loucks (DJ Orographic) of Bridge Club in Portland, met a lot of talented architects, artists and community activists. We learned about Epicenter's mission of sustainable cultural and community engagement in rural towns, enjoying presentations and doing some service projects, all while getting unplugged from the real world for a minute. It was a pretty amazing experience! Thanks to everyone at Epicenter for bringing us down. Hope to see you all very soon.

Early concept and branding for FLIGHT by Contact Design.

Early concept and branding for FLIGHT by Contact Design.

FLIGHT, the Leonardo's first permanent exhibit in Salt Lake City has finally debuted. I was proud to work on the initial branding of FLIGHT, but the real heroes are the people behind the scenes at the Leo, Creative Services Bureau and Merit Medical who had the crazy dream of putting two retired airplanes inside the main hall of a brutalist style building. It's a must see! You can read more about the entire process here.

Major Tom & The Moonboys

Salt Lake City, MusicJesse WalkerComment

Either I was having an early onset mid-life crisis or the cocktails were as strong as they were delicious... but about half way through sips at Under Current last night, the talent of Major Tom & The Moon Boys, a new Bowie tribute band became undeniable. Lead singer Tom Larsen's vocals and affect, complete with dyed red hair were uncannily close to the real thing, and the band was holding their own as well. Great performance, and only their second show! Try and catch them sometime. Follow and watch more of their videos here.
