Want to Get Off The Grid? Say Yee-Haw

Last night at Gallery Stokes in Atlanta, I had the pleasure of meeting Kevin Bradley, the proprietor of Yee-Haw Industries, a printmaking studio in Knoxville that operates old school–completely custom, hand-pressed posters, invitations and the like.

Kevin’s work shows up in Print’s Regional Design Annual quite a bit, and some ad agencies use him to design ads and packaging. In addition, he hosts agencies like Arnold to come to Knoxville and experiment in the printmaking studio. Interestingly, he said that a good portion of his business is in wedding invitations, too.
He’s bought out the type and graphic collections of numerous printers that are long-gone. Somehow, the work just seems timeless. When your server goes down or the power lines collapse, Kevin’s ready. He’s a fun guy, and the work is fun, too.
