I don’t think I’ll ever shake my obsession with design. I started my creative career years ago as a screen print designer and production assistant. It was a life changing experience for me. I learned so much in those early years and truly became addicted to print and of its facets.
I was led to Zak, founder of Four Finger Press, through several friends. Originally from Philly, Zak is leading the push to re-introduce the beauty and elegance of printed pieces in the city and beyond.
For me, the process of screen printing is one that is close to my heart and is as unique as the events they’re meant to support and promote.
Zak has already made an impact since landing in Nola. Right out the gate, he printed work for artist Anna Koeferl, designed and printed event pieces for local brand Krewe, printed posters for Just Cause Nola, and his recent work with Arrow Cafe and their upcoming event Gene’s Angels this coming Friday night.
Zak has also launched his own brand, Poor-boy New Orleans which is a range of t-shirts, prints, and koozies inspired by Playboy. The dopest thing is that all products are wrapped up in custom branded po-boy paper. So dope. I’m so excited to see more and more work from Zak around town and I couldn’t be happier to have spent time with him in his studio.
