Create. Create. Relax. is the tangible design studio of John Engelman. I want to make your next thing.
Merch With Heart
From the numerous t-shirts and hats I've worked on, to the 52 page Umphrey's McGee tour program, the 2014 UM calendar, or the album covers, DVD jackets, and collectible pins, my goal is to make something I, as a fan, would want or want to see. I keep that vision alive in all of my work, whether it's for your band merchandise or your growing company.
What I Offer
While I love working on all of the t-shirts, hoodies, lapel pins, band logos, banners, buttons, magazines, posters, album covers, postcards, fliers, stickers, company logos, restaurant menus, DVD covers, and anything else you can throw at me, I'm not much of a web design guy. I can do a lot of things, but web design from scratch is not one of them. Need a Squarespace (it's what this site is built on) or Tumblr site? No problem. Anything else? Let's just say I "may" or "may not" know "a guy" who can "take care" of this "problem" for you... Got that?
I am very proficient custom picture framer, and have been doing so for over 8 years. I love photography, and am interested in advancing my skills much more. I'm also a fan of film and have dreams of shooting a documentary someday. I've been doing abstract art for over 15 years and have a small catalog of pieces I'm very proud of.
If you're interested in any of these things, please get in touch with me via the contact page and mention either Custom Picture Framing, Photography, Film, or Abstract Art in the subject line.
