What started out as an extracurricular activity for the love of music and design has become a source of full time employment for Jason Munn, the creator of Small Stakes. Small Stakes is proof that design based on concept and not just an illustration trend can result in award winning pieces and an international client base. What began by creating small run screen printed posters for local bands has developed into album and book covers and t-shirt designs for bands like Wilco, Death Cab for Cutie, Mates of States and Sufjan Stevens.
