After receiving a great deal of positive feedback from the SHAOLIN JAZZ – Album Cover Design Contest, which included a variety of requests for SHAOLIN JAZZ related product based on those graphics, DJ 2-Tone Jones and I decided to release a series of T-shirts, via the Red Bubble platform.  The graphics chosen are comprised of the top six designs (including the winner) that we considered to be the front-runners in the competition.

SHAOLIN JAZZ – T-shirts / Graphic Designer Interviews: Matthew Stuckey

What’s your name and where are you from?

Matthew Stuckey – Adelaide Australia

Who or what got you interested in design?

When I was really young I used to copy Garfield comics so I was influenced a lot by the neatness of Jim Davis’ illustrations. As a teenager I used to teach myself how to draw Major League, NBA and NFL logos, so I was always interested in combining custom type and characters to form really tight compositions.

How has your upbringing and or environment inspired you or shaped your design process?

I guess if you’re creative visually, you absorb a lot from your environment; colours, signs, typography, shapes of buildings. As far as my upbringing, I was always encouraged to try new things and find what I was good at, so they helped obviously.  Click here to order Matthew’s SHAOLIN JAZZ graphic tee.  To read more click>>> Read the rest of this entry
