Zach Ishmael Meet the creative.
Phoenix is brimming with creativity. And every other year, we put the spotlight on 100 of the city's creative forces. Leading up to the release of this year's Best of Phoenix issue, we're profiling 100 more. Welcome to the 2014 edition of 100 Creatives. Up today: 18. Jon Arvizu.
Artist and designer Jon Arvizu always has a few irons in the fire.
The Scottsdale-based creative independently operates Trapdoor Studio, where he creates mid-century-style and advertising-inspired silkscreen works, posters, and letterpress pieces -- among other things -- of iconic imagery including Phoenix's architectural gems, tiki gods, and pop culture ephemera.
And speaking of fire, Arvizu recently wrapped up mod-style poster illustrations for Brandon Williams' Modfire, the Phoenix-based company that specializes in sleek, artisan-made fireplaces.
