DMSC Portfolio: Posters and Journal Entries

Before I was assigned any creative work, I made this BOOGAT poster. I showed my co-workers and they all thought it was pretty neat. So, I started to get assigned posters. You can tell the spacing and typography is a mess, but the photo of BOOGAT and the background worked nicely.

The first poster I got assigned was the Timmy Williams stand-up show.

DMSC has a hard time communicating all of their monthly events to patrons, so I made a monthly poster with all of their events.

The poster I made highlighting the Halloween-themed events we had was probably my favorite poster I made. Spending the day brainstorming with my boss, Bethany Arganbright, about what events we could have and the event series name, “Fright Fest” was one of the best days during my internship.


With Copywrite and Coolzey’s permission, I took some of the assets from their tour poster and made one for the show at DMSC.

The Joshua James/MAIDS poster I made was never published because James’ manager ended up getting us a tour poster after all just as I finished it.

The last poster I made was for the Benjamin Cartel show. It was simple but I found it the most aesthetically pleasing. Mickey Davis, our program manager, loved it and wants to use it as a template for other singer-songwriter shows.

Greenlee School of Journalism’s Internship Coordinator Juli Probasco-Sowers made it apparent that keeping a solid journal was very important to catalog your work and see your progression as your internship moved along.

Episode 003 of The EZPZ Podcast is ready for your earholes!

The EZPZ Podcast Episode 003

The lemon heads are back this with episode 003 this week! Your co-hosts Shaun Johnson, Nick Gandy and Dan Brown start off by gushing about how awesome the Brand New, Circa Survive were at 7 Flags Event Center. Then they chat about the issues with the venue and the problems with “will call” attendees. *Interlude: “Welcome to Bangkok” by Brand New The Mayweather-Pacquiao fight was Saturday, May 2nd. The only lemon head that watched it, #StealthModeDan, found it online for free. We chat about the some of the attendees, the celebrity that wagered and lost $250,000 and how Mayweather is a smart, skillful, piece of shit. *Interlude: “Hot Jazzybelle” by Kaytranada After the discussion about the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight, we realized we were recording the podcast on #StealthModeDan’s MacBook Pro mic instead of our Snowball mic. Dan put his sound engineering skills to good use and cleaned it up to make it sound pretty good. We apologize, but hey, who said we were pros? Then we dove into a discussion about the Avengers and the new movie, Avengers: Age of Ultron. Shaun went to see it with Lydia and thought it was pretty solid. Nick told us about how much he loves big, muscular superheroes and Mortal Kombat fighters. *Interlude: “Bombay” by Damn Kids The lemon heads then discussed the awesome technology that Tesla announced at their keynote in Los Angeles, California. The dudes discussed what they thought about the Powerwall and how Elon Musk is the baddest mother fucker walking the face of the Earth. *Interlude: “Rain” by Singularis Make sure you all keep the #StealthModeDan hashtag going! It’s going to be our little thing for a while. We let the listeners know about how we actually recorded our third episode on April 25th, but trashed it since it wasn’t up to par with episode 002. The Story So Far, Four Year Strong and Terror show is on Saturday, May 9th at Wooly’s in Des Moines, Iowa. Shaun and Nick are going to the show, so we discussed the bands on the bill. We also get a little nostalgic and chatted about August Burns Red and Bring Me the Horizon. *Interlude: “I Don’t Fuck With You” ft. E-40 by Big Sean That wraps up episode 003! Thank you for all of your support. We are working hard to iron out any kinks. We are learning as we go, but we are always happy to hear how we can improve our show.
