Broad Cabal’s Shallow Flags

My original goal in creating a gig poster was to recreate the feelings I have when I listened to Radiohead, Alt-J and other experimental rock bands I enjoy. After spending some thought on the subject I thought I had everything lined up quickly, but I knew it would be...

Holy Rope

When we first started talking about this project in class, I was really scared because I had no idea what to create. I wanted to start with a band name, and then work from there. One of my favorite songs has a line that says, “Cast me the holy rope.”...

The Beginning of our story

Coming into this project, I had no idea what I wanted to do. I have almost no music sense and as a result, my brain had a hard time coming up with something that fit the perimeters of the project. So I decided to sit on it for a day.   As a was creating my word...

Burning Angels Gig Poster

When I started on this project I knew exactly what I wanted to do. After doing some sketches I realized I could do the project, but it was going to be something that required a little more time than two weeks to get it to a level that I would be happy with. So I did a...

Ludwing Song poster

      The name of my band is Ludwing Song, and is an Irish alternative boy band. I chose the name from  Ireland country bird, a ludwig. The cause I am fighting is waste and destruction of nature. I merged that with the Irish theme to come up with the lone...

Paper Houses

Paper Houses reminds me of playing pretend with my siblings. We would make everything out of paper. Our world was limitless. Growing older has brought me out of this imaginary world into a real world where it is a lot harder to have happy homes and relationships. I...

What’s Your Fortune?

LIPP, most popular pop-electro duo in the United States, is coming to VEGAS!  I had a lot of fun designing this poster. It was a long process to try and figure out what kind of band/group/artist I wanted to make a gig poster for. Lately, I’ve been really into...

Wild Coast

Growing up in Southern California I always loved to see the sunsets on the beach. I could start to distinguish all of the different colors that radiate out from the sun. Those experiences gave me the inspiration to create a “Gig Poster” where I made up a...

Love the Crafty Acolytes

So my Gig Poster started off with some of the favorites of music I like. My favorite music is Prog Rock music and I have loved it for ages. So I wanted to design a poster that had an H.P. Lovecraft theme mixed with that intelligent feel of the progresive music. I...

SUBURBIA

Setting the Stage Think for a minute about a classic scene. A VW bus driving down Pacific Coast Highway during a sunset. What do you hear? Waves crashing? Seagulls flying by? The hum on the engine? These are the things that I had in mind when designing this poster. I...

Stranger Thoughts

Objective: Create a rad gig poster for a band. I want the poster to be unique but also capture the style and sound of the band.   When we were introduced to this project it was by far the most exciting to me. Being able to create anything we wanted gave me freedom as...

Gig Poster – Blue Skies

The Goal The purpose of my gig poster was to portray the overall feeling and style of a band that I really like. I chose the national parks, which has a very back-woodsy and upbeat vibe to it. I wanted to show this with bright and happy colors matched with objects...

The Wanderers

Through this assignment, I have learned that I can come up with weird ideas but I have an extremely hard time separating them and actually committing to one. I went through at least 20 Ideas before I actually stuck with one, so lets jump in. The first thing I did was...

One Hundred Miles Gig Poster

Purpose The purpose of this project was to create a gig poster for a band called One Hundred Miles who are coming to The Venue on December 1. Process I begun by figuring out my band name and trying to imagine the kind of music that a band named One Hundred Miles would...

Gig Poster – King Slayers

This project was really difficult in the beginning in terms of coming up with an idea and the overall feel that I wanted the band to have. My roommate had suggested the idea of Pirate Rock which is a real thing. I thought why not and started to create word lists that...

Warning: High Volt Age

I’ve made posters in art classes before, but this was the first GIG poster I ever attempted. When my class instructor described it, it sounded like a bogus, off-the-wall style that I didn’t have a mind for. All my prior posters had to be crisp and clean,...

The Environmentalists

Creating a gig poster takes a great deal of creativity and time, but that’s part of the reason I decided to take on the project. I knew I needed to work on learning how to be creative. There were several ways in which I dug for ideas. First, a lot of sketching. My...

Killing Knowledge with Tender Hooligans

I designed this Gig Poster for the fictitious band Tender Hooligan. Their music is similar to that of The Smiths/Morrissey. They have an alternative rock sound and focus on dark undertones to their music. They, like Morrissey, write music decrying “The Big...
