Hannah Holmes moved to Kansas City last May after graduating from Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida. She has a serious love of pattern and color and is excited to be pursuing a career where she can put these passions to good use.
Gavin is a designer, illustrator and musician who lives and works in Kansas City. His ongoing Travelogue project presents illustration as a form of exploration, with scenes from Kansas City and small Kansas towns to the coldest and warmest ends of the globe. In concert posters for his band Sad American Night and other talented local acts, Gavin lets his mind (and pen) wander to history, native art, legends and mythology.

Payton Kelly’s association with the local craft beer scene dates back to the mid 1980′s, when he home brewed with John McDonald, who went on to found Boulevard Brewing Company a few years later. The result of that collaboration suggested that Payton’s talents were better suited for things that go on the outside of the bottle, so John asked him for help designing the very first labels, in 1990. Never one to turn down free beer, Payton designed virtually every Boulevard brand that followed, more than 50 to date. Since 1995 he has been full-time Creative Director for the brewery.
Payton earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Missouri State University and a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Oregon. Before joining Boulevard he spent 11 years as an artist with Hallmark Cards, designing greeting cards for Shoebox Greetings and teaching printmaking in the Rice Innovation Center.
Payton’s hand painted beer bottles have been a huge hit in past years. We can’t wait to see what he creates this year!
