Deploy the Futon

I wanted to do something that portrayed the emotion of caos, confusion, escape, and shelter. I used word mapping to come up with some ideas of what I wanted to design. I sketched two rough concepts and this is what I came up with:           I...

The Civilians: Melting Cities

This project KILLED ME! I was creatively stumped! Holy cow. I am into very specific music, and so I’m not as familiar with gig posters as most people. I just don’t see them and if I do I’m super not interested. Basically I’m not the target...

Sound from the Ground

Creating a Graphic Gig Poster My objective of this project was to create an “earthy/hippie” toned poster for a band called Ground Sound. This objective was met through an earthy-toned color scheme, vector creation of a plant with roots, and a twig...

Catchin’ the Rays

The gig poster eluded me in a different way than the other projects I have completed recently. I can honestly say now that I have a final product that I grew to enjoy it. One of my main objectives was to use a texture, have coherency (or gestalt) in my design, and...

Morton’s Grunge Girl

This week I’ve been trying my hand at a style I am mostly unfamiliar with: grunge. From the moment I set out on this venture, I knew I wanted to do a play on something iconic – a household name. The Morton’s salt girl. As I played around with the...

Sunset with Open Ocean

A little bit about me: I do not listen to a lot of music, but when I do I really only listen to one type of music, one genre, and one artist. Jack Johnson. Jack Johnson is the music that I go to when I am in a good mood, a bad mood, or just want to listen to music. It...

Projection

Projection: Gig Poster For my gig poster I wanted to make it look like a band that I would listen to. While I was brainstorming and sketching out ideas I listened to my The Lumineers radio station on Pandora to get inspiration. I knew very early on that I wanted to do...

Aqua Katana Comes Alive

I started this project with a very clear idea. I wanted the music to feel like the Strokes combined with Tame Impala. And I knew exactly how I wanted my poster to look. Then came sketching, and my ideas seemed great.  I visualized the use of snakes, or the use of...

The Mystic Gypsies

I was inspired to do this gig poster by a peace mural in my hometown I saw pretty much everyday growing up. It gave off this hippie, psychedelic, 60s kind of vibe and I really liked it.  The woman in the mural is definitely more of a hippie but she reminded me of...

Breaking Lunar – Gig Poster

You can never understand the word persevere until you are given a moment where you have to persevere and just keep moving forwards. I definitly was taught a lesson on how to persevere in this project.  For this project I created a gig poster. It was fun brainstorming...

Glass Shark : Gig poster

One thing that has always been a passion of mine was music. So when I got the opportunity to design a gig poster for a band I got to make up, I was immediately interested. The band I created was called Glass Shark. Glass Shark was a band that played old style rock...

The Travelers

This has been a hard and fun project. I love music, but the truth is I have never pay attention to posters. For this assignment I had to do some research to understand how the music and posters can create or generate a message. The band I created, The Travelers, is a...

Gig’s for being dead

This gig poster represents a combination of two of my favorite bands: Paramore and Lamb of God. If you know them by chance, you know one is about hardly finding love and the other about life not mattering, with both being two completely different styles. Paramore has...

Sapphire

This project has been interesting and fun. I created a poster for a band that I made up for a genre I selected. The band I made up is called Sapphire, it is indies pop/hip hop band. The poster was graphic based and was created with abstract ideas. I did struggle...

The Irreverent

I need to be honest, Gig posters might be my new favorite thing. I had so much fun researching and designing these last couple weeks. It was just awesome. Usually, I have an idea in my head before I sketch, but this time I decided to take away all of the distractions...

Bad Apples

For my gig poster, I chose to create a band called “Bad Apples.” I took my inspiration mostly from “Snow White” to make kind of a gothic-metal band. Here are a few of my sketches: I really liked the goopy stuff dripping off the apple, and so...

Twine – Gig Poster

The whole purpose behind creating a gig poster is to create a specific feeling. The way one designs, the colors one uses, and the shapes that are used all create an ambiance and feeling for the viewer. I decided to make a poster that felt country, rustic, and calm....
