A set of illustrated items including matchbooks, coasters, and various articles for three small dive bars local to the Philadelphia Area. Each design is personalized to the specific bar’s marketed slogans and characteristics that make them distinct between themselves and other dives. Stylistically I drew inspiration from vintage outdoor signage and as well as xerox 90’s rave show flyers to help capture the grungy and dated nature of dive bars.
