Jason Munn (1975) grew up in Neenah, Wisconsin, but now calls Oakland, California home. He began making posters almost twelve years ago for local venues and independent musicians, designing under the pseudonym The Small Stakes.
Since the beginning of 2010 Jason has been working simply under his own name. 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 a 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 San Francisco Public Library.
In 2010, Chronicle Books published “The Small Stakes” a monograph of Jason’s posters created from 2002-2009.
