Northwest pride is on parade! DCS is excited to be working with Powerslide Design Co., otherwise known as Mike Klay. A Seattlite by way of California, we're happy to convert another talented artist into a reveler in the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Powerslide's recent order for 350 digital die-cut and pro-cut stickers definitely brought out the regional passion in our team and we hope to see more great artwork coming through our shop in the near future. Be sure to check out Powerslide Design Co. online to see his incredible body of work. Thanks Mike!

Powerslide Design Co. | Visual Engineer

Hailing from the South Bay Area in California, Mike Klay currently resides in Seattle where it doesn't rain as often as people may think. He has a Bachelors of Fine Art degree in Graphic Design and a minor in Art History.

Music has always been a driving force behind a lot of the ideas that Klay puts on paper. In high school he picked up a guitar and learned a couple of notes until he eventually starting laying down beats on a drum kit. After graduating from college and moving to Seattle, there was no way that Klay could play drums in an apartment. The drums were sold and the money was used to purchase a pair of Technics MK1200's. Turntables were Klay's natural progression in music and also a way to keep his neighbors happy.

Whether it be the music he listens to while working, the local venues he visits to see various music acts perform, or browsing through one of the many local record shops; music makes him tick.

Having done posters for theatre productions in school and an infatuation for all things music, it was inevitable that one day a fusion would become a reality. Klay has been making gigposters or "showprints" for local venues such as Chop Suey, The Showbox, Graceland, and The Crocodile Cafe.

In his free time, Klay enjoys strolling in Ballard with his wife, Sandra, son Gavyn and their dogs, Buster & Riley. Every once in a while he will create a new mix for his friends by throwing a couple of records on his turntables. On the weekends, you may spot him on a mountain bike, skateboard, or snowboard. Afterall, the Pacific Northwest is a perfect place to take advantage of the great outdoors.
