Not only have we been elated that Charleston’s own Renaissance man, Marcus Amaker, has been the graphic designer for the Dillamental posters, we have been even more excited that he has and will be sharing the stage with us for Jay Dee Day at the Pour House in Charleston, SC.

Marcus has published five books of poetry. His latest book, “the spoken word,” is a compilation of his best work from the last ten years. Marcus is also a web designer, graphic designer, videographer and musician.


He started a design business in 2011 after 12 years in journalism – including a stint as the editor of the Post and Courier’s Charleston Scene entertainment section.

As a designer, he’s created logos, websites and videos for many local organizations and entrepreneurs.

As a poet, he’s toured the country and performed for national TV. Marcus is preparing to release a spoken word/ jazz album with famed drummer Quentin Baxter in 2014.
