Our Graphic Designer

For nearly 20 years Jud Haynes has been designing book covers, records, screen print posters and websites for music festivals bands, actors and authors. An accomplished illustrator as well as graphic designer, his work has been commissioned by Massey Hall, The Winnipeg Folk Festival, Blue Rodeo, City and Colour, Sarah Harmer, Bahamas, Harper Collins, The Royal Ontario Museum, The National Arts Centre, The Toronto Urban Roots Festival, and famed astronaut Commander Chris Hadfield. In his spare time Jud operates a screen print studio selling prints of his personal artwork. He has released seven records with various bands, spent a few years touring, but doesn’t pick up the bass guitar nearly enough these days.
