If you've sipped a cup of coffee at Black Dog or a smoothie at Filling Station, if you've slathered Boulevard 80 Acre BBQ Sauce on a rack of ribs, or refueled your creative intrigue with the Numbers Project, you've seen work from Brandon Wilson of Contrabrand. As one of our favorite designers in Kansas City, it was an honor to sit down with Brandon to talk about his analogue methods, skateboarding, and his connection to some of the most epic creatives in town for this episode of CMYKC.
