About Us

Status Serigraph is the full service Graphic Design and Limited-Edition poster studio of Knoxville-based designer Justin Helton. Since 2005, Helton has developed into one of the most sought after young designers in the Southeast. A one-man studio specializing in graphic design for the music and entertainment industry, Helton has designed materials for some of today’s biggest musical acts, festivals and entertainment brands. Working with bands like Phish, The Avett Brothers, My Morning Jacket, Ween, The Black Keys, and festivals like Bonnaroo, Forecastle and Outside Lands, Helton has created an array of designs for the music industry. Working out of his studio in downtown Knoxville, TN, he uses a unique blend of design, illustration, and typography in his work and his posters are screen printed by hand. As an alumni of the University of Tennessee, and former Creative Director for AC Entertainment, Helton’s experience has lead him to design for such brands as A&E Television, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., and Sugarlands Distilling Company. Helton’s designs have been featured in publications such as Gigposters Vol. 2, 1000 More Greetings, Relix Magazine and has been talked about on such websites as the Chive, Paste Magazine, Buzzfeed and OMGposters.com.
