Last Friday afternoon, I stopped by Andy Vastagh's house for a quick chat about his work. He's been running his own printing company, Boss Construction
, since the early 2000s, and has been freelancing full time since 2008. Vastagh is responsible for some of the most iconic show poster designs in Nashville, and even if you don't think you're familiar with his work, there's a chance you've seen it. Possibly several times. Most recently, he made the Aztec-inspired posters for the Bassnectar New Year's Eve show at Bridgestone, but he's also made posters for our own Nashville Cream anniversary parties, the album packaging for Old Crow Medicine Show's Tennessee Pusher
, logo design for Next Big Nashville, and on and on.
While I was there, I took a few snapshots of his home office. I'm always curious about the stuff that fills people's spaces — what's on their bookshelves, walls and desks, how clean or cluttered they keep it, what weird things they hold onto, etc. You can check out what I found after the jump, including a series of skate decks by Neckface that had me wide-eyed and totally envious. Vastagh's got style.
