What do Kid-Cudi, The Cool Kids, A-TRAK, and Kid Sister have in common? Besides being dope, the new crop of hip-hop electro superstars all had their album covers designed by graphic designer extraordinare Dust La Rock! As the in-house art director for up-and-coming label Fools’ Gold, Dust’s bright colors, quirky and cartoonish designs, and signature lettering have finally been garnering the attention they deserve (Diddy tweeted about him recently, and you know when Diddy tweets, it’s on!). With design work for Bijules NYC, OxyCottontail, Tank Theory, and the hipster haven Studio B under his belt already, Dust is definitely carving a name out for himself in the streetwear-oriented design world.
To celebrate his epic achievements, Fools’ Gold and Red Stripe are making sure that Dust finally gets an exhibit in the Big Apple this Thursday, the 23rd. DJs Dave1 (Chromeo), Nick Catchadubs, Vin Sol, and Queen Majesty will be in the house bringing you dope beats, so if your’e in town be sure to hit up the Christopher Henry Gallery and get to know Dust’s work!
