Fat Kid Rules the World CD

Fat Kids Rules the World CD

Fat Kid Rules the World is an independent film based on the young adult novel by K.L. Going. The story focuses heavily on the underground teen punk/grunge scene of Seattle. I wanted the album to have a dirty grunge, art zine feel to it. The graphics on the CD itself are taken from the movie.

Emily Austin Memorial Foundation Logo

Foundation Logo

A charity that raises money for educational scholarships and for raising public awareness of the terrors of drunk driving. Emily was an artist, so I used Brush Script italic to capture that spirit. The bright red rose is one of the Foundations symbols.
