Munn, Jason

JASON MUNN (1975-)

Jason Munn (1975-) grew up in Neenah, Wisconsin, but now calls Oakland, California home. He began making posters almost twelve years ago for local music venues and independent musicians, designing under the pseudonym The Small Stakes, until he began using his full name in 2010. Jason continues to create posters for shows and tours, while also collaborating on projects with companies and organizations such as the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Public Bikes, Best Made Co., and Rdio. Jason’s work has been recognized in numerous exhibits as well as print and online publications such as Print, Communication Arts, How, Grain Edit, and It’s Nice That. In 2005 he was given the Young Gun Award by the Art Directors Club. A selection of his posters are part of the permanent collections at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Denver Art Museum, and the San Francisco Public Library.

In 2010, Chronicle Books published The Small Stakes a monograph of Jason’s posters created from 2002-2009. Some of his most loyal clients include Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, Andrew Bird, The Books, Criterion Collection, Chronicle Books, Death Cab For Cutie, Flight Of The Conchords, Insound Levi's, Mark Kozelek, Modest Mouse, The National New York Times Magazine, Noise Pop Festival, Patagonia, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Sonic Youth, and Wired.
