Jesse LeDoux

Jesse LeDoux

I’ve long-admired Jesse LeDoux’s work and his earliest gig posters with Patent Pending are what sparked my interest in design and typography. In the early 2000s he was the in-house art director for Sub Pop records where he created iconic cover art for the Shins, Iron and Wine, Death Cab for Cutie and many others. Since leaving he has forged a solo career where the same level of craft and expertise has continued to permeate his work.  In his latest offering, Jesse has produced a Skillshare class that allows users to gain access to his vast knowledge of poster making and design. In the class, you’ll learn his favorite tools and techniques, preparing work for screen printing and much more. See all the details here.
