While living and working in Dublin, Stephen was part of the local dance music scene, promoting club nights and djing under his last name, Franklin. Collaborating with his friends that ran the FOOD (Fu*ck Off Or Dance) club night, Stephen was asked to design the poster and flyer for their first birthday celebration event. He drew inspiration for the tongue design from John Pasche's classic 1970 Rolling Stones poster and mixed in the Luna Park teeth from his hometown in Melbourne, Australia. The result was a fun house vibe that captured the soul of this young Breaks club night.
