One year age, Dragonfly Yoga Studio approached PONSHOP owner, Gabriel Pons about redesigning their logo and branding for their newly renovated space at 810 Caroline Street, Fredericksburg. Since then, Pons has completed a 45-foot long mural in their main studio and provided graphic design services to give their business a fresh new look. Below are some pics of Dragonfly’s recent apparel release using their new logo. All apparel is ethically screen printed on organic cotton by Soulflower (Minneapolis, MN) and proudly worn by Dragonfly Yoga’s instructors Carly, Kolbie, and Kelsey. Thanks again to Anne Kemp, owner of Dragonfly Yoga Studio, for her sustained enthusiasm in collaborating with PONSHOP on creative projects that enhance their business and the community!

The Rappahannock Independent Film Festival (Riff) begins next week (August 27-30) and I couldn't more excited. This is the second year for Fredericksburg's global motion picture event and it looks to be quite promising: Check this link for a sneak peek at some of the films.
I did the graphic for this year's Riff Tees - so if you plan on checking out the festival, pick up an exclusive art tee and support the cause. -G
Shirts available at the Festival Site: Central Rappahannock Regional Library (1201 Caroline Street)
Inspiration for this graphic came from thinking about how in order for the media of motion picture to work, there must be some form of rotary mechanism: from the film reel to the the hard drive, there's something spinning...
If you look close at the graphic, you'll see an amalgamation of different components that come together to produce this wonderful thing called cinema. The light blue background merges these elements with Fredericksburg's cityscape and essentially, the Rappahannock River.
