Above is the logo I designed for Moscow based indie band Dire Island. The front man of the group, Jay Phillips, is very old friend of mine. When he first posted tracks from the band’s Soundcloud page on Facebook a few months ago, I couldn’t quite believe that it was him singing. Jay picked up a guitar around the same time we both picked up skateboards so I knew he could play I had just never heard him sing. Hopefully the band will have more success than our terrible skateboarding careers.
