Wisconsin native Jason Munn now calls Oakland, California his home. He started his career with a love of independent music and design and in 2003 he founded his studio, The Small Stakes, where he produces designs for a wide range of products. The artist is best known for his poster designs, which are concept-driven and restrained, keeping only what is essential to the composition. On an interview with Grain Edit he discusses his use of found imagery:
“At first I wasn’t confident in my abilities to draw etc. Plus it was a huge part of the learning process for me. I was learning how images work together but, as I became more confident, I started to incorporate more illustration into my work.”
And on Teen Vogue he says this:
“My early work used a lot of found imagery or combined multiple pieces of found imagery to create something new. I rarely use found imagery now, but I do work with a lot of common objects, changing them in some way to get a different meaning from the objects and to relate them to the bands.”
