Gig Posters! I Love Gig Posters! It’s Time I Design Some Gig Posters!

I’m going to be making gig posters! W00t !!
Seriously exciting – I think it’s a fantastic means of exploring visual communication while promoting other artists.
Beneficial for the creator and subject of the poster!

Whilst planning for this work,
I pulled out stacks of magazines that I’ve kept over the years: ION, Vice, CMYK, STEP
and dug for inspiration.
It’s been fun.

Here are some definite standouts:

I’m definitely a fan of hand-drawn posters.
Although I see the benefits of using design software, and I’m sure these artists may use graphic design for some or all of their work,
I feel that 3.5 years of full time graphic design work has made me appreciative of and very hungry for good old fashioned drawing. Pencil on paper. Smudges from my hand. That good shit.
