I was very honored to participate in the amazing battle against #lymphoma (Supporting Lymphoma Awareness Worldwide) that Spyda the dj started on 2012.
Spyda in order to spread awareness against the desease but also to support his own battle, has his own e-shop, merchandising t-shirts with the motto 1, 2, 3, 4, ... one day at a time. I was very happy when he asked me to collaborate for a new logo design for his next t-shirt line. In the process, the logo became a part of two poster concepts as well. One delicate and simple and another in a vintage style.
I and Spyda invite any other artist who would wish to be a part of supporting Lymphoma Awareness.
Spyda the dj, born Emerson Gibson, was diagnosed at MedStar Washington Hospital with Stage 3 Hodgkins Lymphoma in August 2012. Since his diagnosis he has completed chemotherapy and radiation at Washington Cancer Institute, an autologous transplant at the University of Maryland Medical Center and consulted with Johns Hopkins. After several relapses Spyda underwent a Haplo-identical stem cell transplantation at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in November 2015. During his extended hospital stay, Spyda and his medical team led by Dr. Sawa Ito fought to bring his health to a status that allowed him to return home on June 10, 2016.
