Tyler Kreshover, a 27-year old architect living in Brooklyn has taken his skills to a new level with his Baker’s Dozen print. Using programs including Illustrator, Photoshop and Sketch up, Tyler has taken his love for Phish and the 13 shows that made up the Baker’s Dozen and created a print celebrating the historic run. Tyler shares his story behind this intricate print below.
Two weeks before the BD started I was living outside of Philadelphia with growing interest in moving to NYC when one of my good friends told me he had a spot open in his Brooklyn artist loft. I knew I wanted to see as many Baker’s Dozen shows as possible. This combined with my desire to live in New York prompted me to put in my two weeks, quit my job, and make the move to New York City on a whim. I moved in and unpacked my things a few hours before the first show of the dozen, and ended up doing all 13. It was one of the greatest spontaneous decisions I have ever made.
The Baker’s Dozen Poster idea originated with the functional purpose of it – and then the graphics came later. I think something about being an architect makes me really appreciate design that can be functional (like buildings). Most prints you see for Phish shows are created before the show and don’t necessarily fully portray the things that happened that night. But considering how the things that happened during the Baker’s Dozen Run are so significant; I wanted to make a poster that commemorated it all. Having the setlist of each show in a cool format that allows you to compare night by night what went down at the Dozen adds a cool function to this piece that seems to be appreciated. I really tried to convey the energy of the show and song choices with different fonts and accentuations in type.
As far as the graphics around them, it just seemed pretty obvious to make the scene a bakery – Phish kinda handed that on a plate with the whole donut idea. Putting together the scene was a multistep process – the setlists were created in Illustrator first. The scene itself is actually modeled three-dimensionally in an architectural program I use called SketchUp. As an architect, I have spent a ton of time 3D modeling and rendering interior and exterior scenes to create visions for clients of what their space might look like upon completion – so I used those skills to put together a model of the bakery (placing emphasis on how the setlists would be portrayed).
This poster is one of Tyler’s first in the Phanart scene, and is in an open edition, measuring 36″ x 24″ and digitally printed on 175 gsm fine art paper. Tyler has a variety of other work, with shirts, other apparel and clothing inspired by Trey Anastasio, JGB’s Cats Under the Stars, Goose, and more. Check out other items below and his Etsy shop for more details. Follow him on Instagram and Twitter.

Dave’s MSG poster measures 11″x14″ and costs $30 in an edition of 1 Billion (collectors may choose their print number). Russo says of the print:
“To commemorate the roaring 20’s, I’m calling attention to our return to the gilded age where unchecked financial habits put us, once again, on a path of uncertainty. This is contextualized in the concert scene at a time when ticket sales are at their most gentrified ever. The baker boomers dream of scoring a NYE ticket as though it were Willy Wonka’s winning wrapper. Those lucky enough to attend must first bow to the scalping tycoons. Venue capacity is the new gold standard.
The edition number of 1,000,000,000 is a playful nod, forcing observation of the abstract absurdity of a number that is often discussed in news, but seldom witnessed in practicality.”

PHOOTYKITS is a crossover project at the intersection of several different passions: graphic design, football (soccer), and Phish.
It re-imagines each Phish song as a Football Club and what each club’s crest and uniform (kit) would look like. The players on each team are famous versions of each song, as Phisheads commonly refer to them: the names are dictated by the venue or the city, the number by the show date. Real life soccer clubs’ team crests and kits have obviously served as inspiration for many designs but song/club associations are purely fortuitous and design-driven. To complete the exercise, the corporate sponsors are also all fictional, and to the best of my intent, tie back in some way or other to the song/team.
As this project gains traction with Phish and soccer fans, PhootyKits will be offering printing runs of fully customized kits (size/name/number) as soon as minimum order size is reached. These shirts are clever and they are going to take off. Visit Phootykits website now and get your club on the crest of this wave.
