That pile of scrap wood in your garage or on the side of the road can become something of aesthetic value. Learn how to transform that heap into a patchwork canvas for creative work. Join us for our first ever AIGA Austin Design Ranchette workshop dealing with salvaged wood canvases and custom lettering brought to you by Brian Phillips and Bobby Dixon. What’s more, this workshop will cover the basics of hand-drawn lettering in order to customize your newly constructed wood canvas. From script to blackletter, create custom type for a unique context.


Bobby Dixon is a self-taught hand letterer with over 20 years of screen-printing, gig poster, and print design experience. As the owner of KLCTVEfusion and creative director of Industry Print Shop, Bobby has worked with Nike, Reebok, Zoo York, SXSW, Austin City Limits, Paramount Pictures, Toyota, Sprite, and Aesop Rock. He graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelors of Fine Arts and likes tacos. Twitter @klctve Instagram: @klctvefusion

Brian Phillips started making art full time in 2010. With a trial by error method, Brian has over 20 years of experience as a self-taught artist striving for independent self discovery. His unique style and inclusive attitude translates to evocative narrative through repurposed materials. “When I find the wood/objects I salvage, I try to see the beauty in the blemishes, mistakes and years of use and abuse. It all has a story, good or bad.” Instagram: @Phoondaddy


Inspired by our signature event AIGA Austin Design Ranch—an intimate, three-day, hands-on, workshop-driven design retreat in a rustic setting. Design Ranchettes is an occasional workshop series where we will we feature past/upcoming Design Ranch workshop leaders for in-town workshops open to Members and non-members looking to get in on (or re-live) the Design Ranch experience. Topics and settings will vary. #AIGAdesignranchette
