Thank you so much for making your way to our Patreon page! We have some really big plans for the future and we are asking you to be a part of it all.
Kataklizmic Design is a media arts & branding business focused on providing services catered to bands and other artists of all types. Kataklizmic Design launched the online publication called Burning Hot Events in April 2016. A small community of team members has grown quickly since the launch, and Team Kataklizmic wants to expand and develop a bigger artistic community in Arizona that builds collaborative relationships and supports artists, freelancers, and entrepreneurs.
We want to recruit more members to the team in order to grow and offer exciting opportunities to professional, passionate, dependable, and efficient individuals with big dreams. We're promoting the gig life!
Burning Hot Events offers high quality combination of concert reviews and photography in Phoenix, artist interviews, an event calendar and promotion, & a concert photography web series (in development)! We also share behind-the-scenes and live peeks into events on our social media and Patreon! We have covered world-renowned artists such as: Taylor Swift, P!nk, Ben Folds, Evanescence, Marilyn Manson, Blink-182, A Perfect Circle, Lacuna Coil, Lindsey Stirling, Taking Back Sunday, Dashboard Confessional, CHVRCHES, Jimmy Eat World, Good Charlotte, AFI, Yellowcard, Sleigh Bells, Underoath, and many more. We've interviewed artists like The Maine, The Wrecks, Post Animal, The Faim, MRCH, Jane N' The Jungle, Swindy, and more.
We are increasing interactivity with our fans! We plan to grow Burning Hot Events and review more types of events and genres, do more video interviews, increase support for the local scene, give further behind-the-scenes peeks into what we do, and more!

We Need Help With...
Equipment, gas, parking, software, web hosting, promotion, time, labor, and more staff members! And if you fund our team, you're not only supporting us... You're supporting the Phoenix artistic community and renowned artists that roll into town, because you are helping us to support them!
This work is out-of-pocket, on top of demanding full-time jobs, business management, and freelancing/contract work.
Burning Hot Events is funded by Patreon alone.
This is hard and valuable work, and we mean to defy the norm! To do this, there are expenses we need help covering to keep this going and growing. And unlike other publications, we do not want to resort to skeezy and obnoxious ads to stay afloat!
In addition to the donations, we have relevant and reputable affiliates like Ticketfly, Amazon, and more. The results have been negligible so far, but we will continue work hard to monetize this project in creative new ways. We are also interested in creating more videos that can be monetized on YouTube, and we need powerful machines to be able to edit videos in a timely manner. This is one of the major projects in development by Kataklizmic Design... The others being " Band Identity" service packages for bands, and the Concertographer Cam web series.
