Explosions In The Sky // San Antonio, TX Poster

May 11th, 2012 // Posted by Dan in Blog, DKNG Work, Explosions In The Sky, Poster

↳ Click on the image above for a high res version

Above is our most recent gig poster, created for the very talented band Explosions In The Sky. This is the second poster we’ve made for them, and after the high praise we received from our first poster, we knew we had a lot to live up to.

The print is a three color screen print packed full of hefty halftoning. To give you an idea of how each layer was made check out each separation below.


The show poster is now available in our online store. Only a small handful are available, so act fast. We will be releasing an art print version of the poster, which will include updated artwork, sometime next month. Below are some close up shots of the physical print

technical question if i may..
is this silk screen printing? if not – i see the colors all overlay each other (overprint) in digial/offset print dont the colors mix, and can you tell the printer in which order to print the colors?

amazing poster and not only this, all you do looks really good
thanks, Adam.

It’s a two color screen print. First orange and then dark brown. There is overprinting involved, but since brown is the darker color, it simply covers the orange rather than mixes with it.

We’re highly involved with the printing process. We create the separations, trapping, decide which pantones the inks will be and the order they will be printed. We outsource our printing to a couple different companies depending on their availability.

I am writing a textbook for students of designers and printers. I ask your permission to use your work. The work is very interesting and useful for learning. I’m waiting for any response. Sergei. Omsk, Russia.

A couple of months late, but is there a chance of the posters being sold again, with the text that is? The art work is just insane. Love your work.

Unfortunately, since this was a limited edition run, once the poster sells out it is gone for good. The art print version is still available in our online store.

So the process videos are amazing.. . I am curious though how long “real” time does it take? an average? The timelapse is gorgeous but it makes it seem like you sit at a desk continually until it’s done (no email? )

some of them – I think Hot Chip in particular, looked like it must have taken 100s of hours (since it seemed like a few different directions were taken).

It’s about 40 hours of work on average and we record each work session separately and compile them together into one video at a super high speed.
