Print Campaign

TAPCO wanted to provide great speaker products to the growing legions of bedroom DJ producers, but they just weren't buying it. I directed a print/web/artist/video campaign and TAPCO products were suddenly on back order from the major retailers. Coincidence? I think not.

Ampeg Dan Armstrong Story


A Magazine devoted to the Electronica/DJ culture and technology. It was great being the editor of a real magazine. I had a super-talented staff and we pulled every string to get the best artists and gear in our book. I miss the free stuff and V.I.P. passes.
