We are bursting with excitement to share with you a preview of our artwork for this year’s St. Johns Bizarre! The masterful creators over at Jolby & Friends are at the helm this year and have crafted some absolutely beautiful artwork that truly captures the spirit of the Bizarre and this wonderful neighborhood of St. Johns. We’ve long admired their work, whether it’s the detailed Brunch Box branding, the fabulous children’s book “Monsters Under Bridges” (featuring our own St. Johns Bridge!), or their recent redesign of the Hopworks Urban Brewery beer line. Check out more of their work here: jolbyandfriends.com

More to come soon!

2014 St. Johns Bizarre poster revealed!

Here’s the 2014 St Johns Bizarre poster, coming soon to a coffee shop window near you! This year’s design is courtesy of the fine folks at Big Friend Co. If this is the first time you’ve heard this name, it won’t be the last! They only recently hung out a shingle for their own shop but they’ve been in the business for a while and have a hefty portfolio full of gems created for Disney Design Group, Walt Disney Imagineering, Disney Publishing, Random House, Universal Creative, Hallmark Cards, Pixar Animation, and Laika Animation. We’re grateful to now be included in that list. Check ‘em out!

And as always, we will have a limited run of signed and numbered screenprinted posters, as well as t-shirts and stainless steel pint cups featuring their work for purchase on Bizarre day!
