Because our backgrounds are in painting and graphic design, this is our biggest focus & greatest passion in what we do.Whether your project requires a simple logo or a revision of your current one, we will work with you to create an identity that strikes a chord with your fans and target audience. Our background isn’t just in “graphic design” like many other media groups. We’re not your run-of-the-mill pixel pushers. We were painters and artists long before we sat down in front of a computer… before photoshop and illustrator became a ‘Creative Suite’. We use our visual art skill and training to produce results that are rich in character & will help create the image for your project that will be the lasting visual symbol for your sound.
We offer extensive options in printing and merchandise. we use traditional serigraphic techniques to produce hand-printed t-shirts, posters, record sleeves, stickers, etc.
We have access to every apparel brand around, and we can use standard plastisol inks or an eco-friendly water-base formula to suit your desires.
If you feel that maybe your math-rock band should sell calculators or mouse-pads with your logo emblazoned on… or your experimental trance sound should have holographic glasses or linticular business cards … we’ll get you the items your listeners will want to buy at your next show.
Yeah, yeah, so you print shirts and stuff for bands. you’re in austin. who doesn’t do that, right?
Not only are our design skills stronger than most print-houses in town, our merch management services are taking a run-of-the-mill business plan to another level.
So, you’re a musician… you rehearse. you write new material. you rehearse more. you book local venues and play out. you tour the southwest. You tour the west coast. so, while you’re focusing on all of that, how do you guys decide which of you gets the chump card and has to run to the post-office because you got orders online for your merch or newest vinyl EP? How do you find the time to check for web-sales and take care of shipping while you’re in the Philadelphia area?
This is stuff you shouldn’t be bothering yourself with, eventhough those sales get the gas in your tank or a slice of pizza in your belly while you’re on the road.
Twin Villain can take over all of that for you so you just get a check on a monthly basis. we’ll create a package that suits your needs you can watch your revenue grow with zero effort as you’re busy out there creating a name for yourself and blowing minds with your music. Let us take care of your inventory, web-maintenance, shipping, and all of the other hassles that you’d rather procrastinate on.
Everyone knows that the image you project to your audience isn’t exactly what’s going to make or break you from hurling onto the scene… but, hey… it definitely weighs in a pretty hefty percentage.
We have a network of skilled photographers, stylists, videographers and the like to pull from. if you need promo shots, a short clip or video for your site and YouTube, anything of that nature, we can assist you to make your image up to snuff with your sound. (No, we won’t dress you up in ziggy stardust era garb for the photoshoot, either …unless you want to, of course … different strokes, ya know?)
So, all you have now is that out-dated myspace page and a Facebook profile where your mom posts messages about how she’s your number one fan …”EVAH!” ?
Yeah, kinda lame considering the year is 2011 and the world is so technologically driven that you’re just getting lost in the waves. but, we can fix that too. we’ll get a site up and running that makes it easy for you to post upcoming show dates, upload pics from your last gig, send bulk emails to your email list, and all of that other fancy interwebz-jazz.
Twin Villain has access to venues & event locations. we’ve put together shows with multiple band line-ups and we’ve even moved our print equipment to the upstairs deck at the Mohawk to celebrate Andy Warhol’s birthday. We have alcohol an food sponsors in our back pockets, who love participating in stuff that we do. We work as collaboratively as possible with all types of movers and shakers to host a party that will have 1000 “likes” overnight.
We plan to be more than just a print-shop… we have designs on being like a cool indie label that takes care of all of those things that the cool indie labels don’t have the time, focus, skill or budget to do for you.
