Ghost Town Design

With such a huge influx of "hot" designers and "must see" shows at any number of galleries across the world, it's sometimes hard to keep up with the real movers and shakers of the art industry as opposed to the 15 minute famers. Ghost Town Design, a screenprinting and design firm, seems to fall into the first category, having been in business since the early 2000's, with their client list including CBS, CMJ, Epitaph, Hard Rock Cafe, HBO, HellCat Records, Interscope, Reebook, Rolling Stone, Warner Bros., and more!

Originally a duo-turned-solo project, Ghost Town now consists of a whopping two designers in Rhode Island, a small state but a giant in the art world. Peter Cardoso and Darren Johnson are the artists/designers with an impressive portfolio of posters & fine art prints with a heavy emphasis on promo posters for bands like Wilco, Doomriders, Fucked Up, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Girl Talk, Kings of Leon, Iron & Wine, Death Cab for Cutie, Explosions in the Sky, Wu Tang Clan, Modest Mouse, Muse, Slayer, Belle and Sebastian, and WAY MORE. You can also view their individual portfolios here, with more fine art and individual prints available to purchase.

You've probably seen their work hanging on club promo boards or online at some point, so be sure to check it at the source. Ghost Town definitely seems like it is here to stay!
