ONE THING LEADS TO ANOTHER
As a teen in Ann Arbor, Michigan, making foodie sandwiches and eavesdropping on art department meetings, Dan Stiles never dreamed his vibrant, pared down work would become the face of modern indie rock posters, but, like the title says, One Thing Leads to Another. Today Stiles’ design world encompasses not just posters but international advertising, book jackets, children’s illustration and even fabric design. A typical Stiles project is equal parts minimalism, work ethic, and graphical wit resulting in images that resonate with a simple authenticity that leaps off the page. Stiles has done it all in One Thing Leads to Another, from Beck to Bonnaroo, with copious stops along the way.
