Minimal Sessions

Brand Designer/Art Director

Minimal Sessions is a monthly techno party turned record label based in Los Angeles. It started as a monthly party and quickly picked up popularity. Now being hosted in two states and 4 cities with over 50 releases under the name. They are quickly turning into a rising force in the techno scene.

I developed a custom type face for this project. Playing off the minimal name and vibe, we went for something that is both unique and simple.

I also handle all art for the label and worked with one of the founders to grow the social media into a large sharing base for music and events.
