JUD HAYNES

For many years I split my time between being a musician (with Wintersleep) and graphic design. Now I concentrate full time on design and illustration.

I am very lucky to live in St. John's, Newfoundland.

Have a look at my portfolio and email me if you have a project in mind – I specialize in illustrations, layout and website design. I have access to painters, photographers, and illustrators in various styles all over North America as well, so if my style isn't 100% right for your project, I probably know who is and can work as art director/project manager to pull it all together for you.

My old band and great friends. Proud to see them doing so well.


New band. Album coming in 2014.


December 2013 Update

I recently completed quite a few new projects - a tour poster that was screen printed and a cook book cover that will be for sale on the upcoming Blue Rodeo tour (I also designed/illustrated their latest album art), as well as a Hey Rosetta poster they had for sale at their Christmas shows in St. John's. Quite a few new websites launched in the last month or two and I designed artwork for some great new albums including Aaron Collis and Emilia Bartellas' self-titled debut, and Sherman Downey's latest release (the cover photo was taken by my Mom back in the 70s) among others.

I was asked to draw a dead cowboy being eaten by vultures. Ok. This was super fun and I love how it turned out.

City under water - I illustrated this poster and had it hand screened in four colours on heavy grey art/card stock. Only 100 printed - with less than 40 left. I do have some of these for sale, if you're interested click here.

St. John's finally has a Comedy Festival. I take care of all the festivals branding; posters, ads, website and more.

cd/lp art
PILOT TO BOMBARDIER

When Bryan (band's primary song writer) sent me this photo and said he wanted me to make an album cover out of it I was a bit skeptical on how it would turn out. But in the end I was totally proud to show this off and wish I came up with the photo myself.

busines card design
SOUND SALON SPA

This two colour/two sided business card design is not as tall as a standard card. By having its final cut size a little smaller the card has a more sleek modern feel.

poster
CITY AND COLOUR

This was a vector illustration I did for City and Colour's Europe/UK tour in 2013.

The first project I ever illustrated and designed for Blue Rodeo. This poster was used to advertise their annual Molson Amphitheatre concert. Screen printed posters are on sale on the band's website.

tour posters
THE SHINS

When I got a call from California asking if I had time to come up with a quick poster for The Shins upcoming tour, the answer was obvious.

album art
MARK BRAGG

Mark gave me full creative control and let me have some of the most fun yet working on CD art. I'm really hoping we get to put this out on vinyl someday as it'll look great. Hand written fonts were the order of the day on this project.

album art
HEY ROSETTA

The first 10" record I ever worked on. The lead off single on this album is amazing. Check it out. Jill Willcott took the awesome photo.

album art
RAH RAH

Rah Rah sent me some 100 year old photos from their home town and asked me to do something fun with them. This record was released exactly 100 years (to the month) after the photo was originally taken. My friend Jamie March painted the album title.

album design
TIM CHAISSON & MORNING FOLD

I worked on this album design which also led to tshirt designs and a new website.

album art
TIM CHAISSON

Another Tim Chaisson album design. This artwork was cut out of paper then composed on the computer. The illustration is meant to represent the Confederation Bridge leading to PEI.

cd/lp art
HARVEST BREED

Recorded at Arcade Fire's Montreal studio, this brand new Quebec band's album sounds amazing. I did my best to make it also look great.

tour admat/posters
HALIFAX POP EXPLOSION

I designed this poster backstage while my old band was on tour playing rediculous frosh week shows with Metric. They say 'the kids are alright', but I'm not really sure...



poster
Bonnie "Prince" Billy

Illustrated poster for Bonnie "Prince" Billy concert. Silk screened versions of this poster are in the works.

website
DRUM!

I've been working with this client for nearly a decade. Earlier this year we revamped their website, I had designed their old one as well, but that was six years ago and it was showing its age.


album designs
WINTERSLEEP

I've designed four out of the five Wintersleep albums (Wintersleep is my old band). The first I did entirely on my own (trees cover), the second was a collaboration with Toronto designer James Mejia (and received a Juno Award nomination for its design) and the third was a collaboration with Paul Murphy who drew the cover illustration. Hello Hum's cover was illustrated by Marianne Collins, layout and design by me.

dvd
Wolfe Island Music Festival

This poster design was recently awarded an Applied Arts Advertising/Design Award and will be published in their Design Awards Annual later this year. It was the first time I ever submitted anything for these awards and I am so excited to have been given a positive response. And, did I mention that this music festival is always amazing!!! Its a WIN/WIN.

boxset
GREAT BIG SEA – XX

One of the most fun projects I ever worked on. For this box set I designed the box itself, a 150+ page book, patches, posters, stickers, 4 CDs, a DVD, laniards and more. UV coat finished on almost everything. Too fun.

poster
POLARIS MUSIC PRIZE

I was invited to design a poster for Polaris Music Prize's shortlist nominee Cold Specks. These were screen printed (18 x 24) and are for sale on the Polaris website.

cd/lp art
BAHAMAS

Afie's band BAHAMAS is one of my favourites, I'm proud to have designed a bunch of different things for BAHAMAS including this great album.

poster print

These are now sold out, but the illustration has been printed on t-shirts which are for sale down at Living Planet on Water Street (in St. John's).

dvd
DRUM!

DRUM! is produced by Brookes and Fiona Diamond. This DVD was released in 2009 and showcases the entire production as well as bonus features.

cd/lp art
JEREMY FISHER

This artwork was cut out of one piece of paper. I came up with the illustration and then had it cut out of one piece of recycled kraft paper. Click enlarge to zoom in and see the paper cuts.

website
KENNEDY

I don't get enough opportunities to tackle a modern corporate design since most of my clients are in the music industry. Kennedy was a lot of fun, we started with their logo, then developed a website and all company branding from there.

album design
DRUMLIN

Drumlin are a family band from Nova Scotia. The nicest people ever and great to see their music is hitting the hearts of so many people. I've designed the first two CDs.

album design
STU MARCHAND

Stu Marchand is a singer/songwriter living in Alberta. This album art is one of my favourite projects I've ever worked on. The custom collage-font on the cover was created from dozens of photos of factories, scaffolding and old barns.

album designs
MATT MAYS

I've worked with Matt Mays on a couple album designs. His father always creates the cover illustrations and then my job would be to come up with a layout and design.

website
CUFF THE DUKE

This Toronto band have a great new album and I was honoured to be asked to make this website for them.

poster
HEY ROSETTA

Hey Rosetta went on tour through the arctic of Canada. I am jealous I didn't get to go as that would be the trip of a lifetime. I created this illustration and poster for their tour.

cd/lp art
CUFF THE DUKE

Paul Lowmen, Cuff the Duke's bass player, did a series of illustrations that we have turned in to the band's last three album covers. I handled the layouts and design.

album design

SARAH HARMER

I've been a huge Sarah Harmer fan since her first album ten years ago and was utterly honoured to be involved in the creation of art for her new album. Available on CD and LP.

website
BUCK 65

I've been a huge Buck 65 fan for years (and have an embarrassingly large collection of his indie-releases). This website was created using a series of paper cut illustrations as the background. 50 hours of paper cutting made for a fun Wordpress site.

poster/site
EDEN MILLS WRITERS' FESTIVAL

I started by coming up with this illustration, and then went on to design posters, tote bags, a website, ads, and 50+ page event program. This was a big job. The festivals' 25th anniversary, so we went all out.

album design + website

poster/ads/website
GRANVILLE GREEN

Cutting, folding, and taping paper to make a bird and flying boy made for a fun campaign. I created posters (pictured) as well as newspaper ads, banner ads, t-shirts and a website.

tour admat/posters
RON SEXSMITH & JILL BARBER tour

The idea here was to create the esthetic of a hand silk-screened poster, but don't actually have them silk-screened. I was very happy with the finished result.

CD/DVD designs
JOEL PLASKETT

To date I've created four CDs for Joel Plaskett and his DVD (the missing CD was the Australian released Make A Little Noise, a compilation of Joel's top tunes).

album art
DARDANELLES

This illustration was meant to represent a moon, high in the night sky over the ocean.

album art
THE NAVIGATORS

Another illustration I created for an album cover. This one was meant to be silk screened, but there wasn't budget to go that route. It still turned out well.

tshirt design
GREAT BIG SEA

Moby Dick - it was fun creating this simple, yet endearing, shirt design.

poster
BYE BYE BRAD

A friend was moving away so we threw a show/party to see him off. I did a little illustration and included some items that I thought he should pack for the trip.

website
SOUND SALON SPA

I've worked on a huge rebranding project for SOUND SALON SPA. This website is a very important part of the puzzle and is consistent to all the other elements.

website
PAUL FRECKER AUDIO

Paul Frecker sells and installs all the best in hi-fi audio video. His expertise has been leading the hi-fi community in Atlantic Canada for more than 30 years.

website
ARE AUDIO

Ross creates amazing boutique hi-fi speakers. I've got a couple sets at the house and can attest to how awesome they are. I've created the ARE AUDIO logo, website, business cards and art directed their product photoshoot.

cd/lp art
GREAT LAKE SWIMMERS

I worked with a great linicut illustrator from the U.S. on this artwork. He made the final illustraion and I did all the layout.
