Hi, I'm Christian Arichabala and I design stuff. Look up to see how to pronounce my last name. Look down to see said stuff.

The Waltz-Astoria started a monthly hip-hop focused open mic show and they asked me to design a logo and flyer for this event.  Open mics in nature are about self promotion and provide a stage to practice your craft. Using that same mentality, I mimicked a scene typically found in small music venue walls, where graffiti artists and bands alike post their stickers for recognition and self promotion.

I designed this flyer for the Waltz-Astoria's “Hellgate Hip-Hop Showcase & Open Mic”. This monthly show features one up-and-coming act while also providing open mic slots for others. Since the nature of open mics is to get practice and gain exposure, I thought using a wall of slaps and stickers fit this event nicely. Check it out September 15th!

This is a logo for One Sound’s own music exchange, an online group where people share the music they’ve been listening to for an audience that appreciates the art of digging for songs.

It’s finally here: Keystone State of Mind 2.When I was approached by Tayyib Ali to also create the cover for KSoM2, I was excited to try to make it bigger, better and more detailed than the first one. I focused on the buildings way more than I did the first time, and I was picky with finding a photo of him that looked as triumphant as the Philadelphia skyline. I’m proud of this one.Make sure you grab this new mixtape. It won’t disappoint.
