Cult Sonoma video // Trashion Show

We lent our video production services out to Cult Sonoma to cover the exciting, first annual Trashion Fashion Show & Exhibit featuring homegrown fashions created from reused, repurposed and recycled materials.

poster // Beervana

We were recently tasked by the Sonoma Community Center to develop a graphic and poster to promote their first annual Beervana amateur beer brewing competition.  They asked us to create something to expressed the idea of “Nirvana for beer-lovers”—something a bit humorous.

We instantly thought of an effervescent, jolly buddha rising from the frothy bubbles of a divine brew.  And a mock beer label was created.

To attain Beervana, one must eliminate all desire and suffering through the tasting and appreciating of hand-crafted beer—and this is best accomplished by attending this sure-to-be-a-blast event.  Click here for details.

posters // Trashion Show

The Sonoma Community Center is curating a “Trashion” Fashion Show & Exhibit centered around fashions created by Bay Area artists from recycled and found materials.  We were inspired by the subject matter to make our own imagery for the posters from a collage of found items and imagery.

A Sonoma Fourth

Here’s to amber waves of grain, jumpy castles and red, white & rosés.  Another Fourth of July in Sonoma exploded in patriotic crepe-paper DIYisms, split-personality hometown bands, mustard-festooned wiener dogs,  dissenting zombies, karate kids and fabulous fireworks. All in all it was a scene out of a Norman Rockwell painting, if Norman Rockwell wore glow stick necklaces and bermuda shorts while drinking estate cab at 10 in the morning. Sometimes, we think it’s the best reason for living here…

Thank you to the Sonoma Community Center for putting on yet another fabulous event!  We’re already looking forward to next year!

2010 Sonoma Valley Muse

Each year, the Sonoma Community Center selects a prominent character from Sonoma’s history to celebrate as the years’ Sonoma Valley Muse.  Past years have been in honor of Jack London, “Big Alma” Spreckels and Robert Lynch.  A special event is the focus of the celebration, which raises much needed funds for the treasure of an arts and cultural center that is the Sonoma Community Center.

This year, the honoree is Hanzell Vineyards founder James D. Zellerbach—who also served as U.S. Ambassador to Italy.  The Italy connection inspired the theme of this year’s celebration: Roman Holiday!

We were once again happy to help create promotional materials and invitations to spread the word about the wonderful event.  You can learn more about this year’s event—and buy tickets—here!

Over the Moon for Sonoma Community Center

You say “Community Center” and one perhaps thinks of a lackluster public building used as a makeshift teen hangout.  In a lot of communities, this may be the case.  But Sonoma Valley has a jewel in its cultural crown—a focal point for art, performance, culture, education and, of course, community—The Sonoma Community Center.

The Sonoma Community Center not only provides art studios, performance spaces, art education, event spaces, community happenings and even a couple of schools, it also produces the popular Fourth of July parade and festivities, the annual City Party and many other events that are at the heart of Sonoma’s lively spirit.

The building it is housed in has such a storied history that we can’t even get into it here (most people may recognize it as the exterior for the high school in the Scream franchise.)  It serves as one of the shining connections to Sonoma’s rich and colorful past as well as a beacon looking forward, celebrating Sonoma’s progressive character.  Though, as all old buildings do, it has accrued quite a bit of maintenance needs—in order to meet these needs, the Sonoma Community Center is holding a raffle (see the poster we made for them, above) for an incredible, exclusive dinner at a beautiful estate with some of the Valley’s top chefs.  Tickets are limited, so be sure to get yours today!
