Today KEXP proudly unveils our new “Homecoming” T-shirt, available exclusively to music lovers who support KEXP during our 2016 Spring Fundraising Drive.
Longtime KEXP volunteer Tarsha Rockowitz designed the shirt. “I wanted to keep it clean and simple,” she explains. “With the 2016 Spring Drive being the first one in KEXP's New Home, a building graphic seemed like the best solution to start introducing it to the public,” says Tarsha. “My hope is for the New Home to become as iconic and recognizable as KEXP itself.”
Tarsha discovered KEXP shortly after moving to Seattle 15 years ago. “As an artist myself, I have a huge appreciation and respect for what KEXP does for music. When you hear such a wide variety of music and support for up-and-coming artists in one place, you have to support the people that make that happen.”
Join Tarsha in supporting great music. Donate $100 or more right now, and you can choose to be thanked with her “Homecoming” T-shirt.
This isn’t Tarsha's first time working on a popular KEXP project. “I was lucky enough to work at an agency that had KEXP as a client,” she recalls. The agency worked with Kevin Cole on artwork for Live at KEXP Volumes 1 and 2. “I left the agency but kept in touch with my KEXP friends,” Tarsha continues. “Kevin and I ended up working together on eight more Live at KEXP CDs after that.”
Tarsha continues to support KEXP as both a volunteer and a donor. “As a former agency designer and wife of someone who is involved with non-profits, I have a huge soft spot for my non-profit clients,” she admits.
And we have a huge soft spot in our hearts for her. Thank you, Tarsha, for creating such a fantastic new KEXP T-shirt for the music lovers who power great music during our 2016 Spring Drive.
