The National Los Angeles, CA Posters

We’re excited to share our latest posters for The National, for their recent pair of shows at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles. Our work for The National over the years has focused on aerial views of various locations, and for their stop in LA, we knew we had to illustrate a labyrinth of freeways. For the two nights of shows, we created a diptych with the maze of ramps and streets spanning both posters.

The National posters are 18” x 24” four-color screen prints on 105 lb Stardream Silver cover stock, with a signed and numbered artist edition of 100 prints for each night. We also have a very limited number of uncut 36” x 24” poster sets. The National Los Angeles posters will go on sale at 10am PST on Monday, September 24 in the DKNG Store.

Leon Bridges Los Angeles, CA Poster

One of our favorites, Leon Bridges, came through Los Angeles on his current tour and we were happy to create the official poster for his show at the historic Greek Theatre. Leon has a signature, vintage aesthetic that we attempted to capture in the scene of a midcentury California fuel station.

The poster is a 24” x 18” 5-color screen print which includes a split-fountain blend in the sky. It’s printed on French Paper Co. Kraft-Tone Index Off-White 100lb cover stock, with a limited artist edition of 50 prints. Check out close up photos of the print below, along with our initial concept sketch and a process video of the poster’s creation. The Leon Bridges Los Angeles poster will be available in the DKNG Store on Monday, September 17, at 10am PST.

TODAY Show Citi Concert Series Posters

This year we had the distinct honor of creating the posters for the Citi Concert Series on NBC’s TODAY Show. For over twenty years, the biggest names in music have performed on the TODAY Show Plaza in Rockefeller Center and this year we had the privilege of making posters for musical legends such as Christina Aguilera, Carrie Underwood and Aerosmith. The summer lineup this year totaled a staggering 22 performances. The hero image above shows the full lineup and below is a selection of some of our favorite posters from the series.

Under Armour Hydration Infographic

Our latest project for Under Armour is a hydration and water usage infographic for their online channels. We were tasked with designing and illustrating the benefits and impact of ditching disposable water bottles. You can also check out Under Armour’s coverage over on the My Fitness Pal Blog

Jack White California Posters

Jack White is currently touring the US in support of his new album, Boarding House Reach, and we were happy to take on the poster duties for three of his California shows. For his first night in San Francisco, we did our take on a classic rusted-out hull of a car, set ablaze with Jack White blue flames. For night two in SF, we were inspired by Jack’s lyrics, combining a leather boot along with three birds lacing it up. Lastly, for Jack’s stop in Bakersfield, we took on a set of traditional locks and keys, with some Jack reference hidden throughout their decorative inlays.

Each poster in the series is an 18” x 24” three-color screen print on Classic Crest Epic Black 100 lb cover stock, with signed and numbered editions of 420 for each of the San Francisco shows, and 291 for the Bakersfield show. Check out our initial sketches below along with closeup photos of each print, as well as process videos for SF Night 2 and Bakersfield. All three Jack White posters go on sale in the DKNG store on Tuesday, August 21, at 9am Pacific Time.

2018 Newport Folk Festival Poster

The historic Newport Folk Festival in Newport, Rhode Island has been taking place since 1959, so we were honored to create the official poster for the 2018 edition of the festival. The festival is very much a product of its picturesque environment, and we were inspired by nearby landmarks like the Goat Island Lighthouse and the Claiborne Pell Newport Bridge, along with a few fantastical elements added in to capture the magical nature of the festival. 

The poster is an 18” x 24” three color screen print on 100lb Cougar Natural cover stock with a signed and numbered edition of 1,050 (only 50 of which are available online). Check out our initial sketch of the poster below along with close up photos of the finished print. The 2018 Newport Folk Festival Poster will be available today (Monday, July 30th) at 12pm PST in the DKNG Store while supplies last.

311 Reno, NV Posters

311 just kicked off their Endless Summer tour and we’re excited to share our poster for the first stop of the tour in Reno, Nevada. We were inspired by the summer surf van vibes of the tour and created an illustration of our favorite surf-mobile along with a kook-stack of boards on the roof for all five band members. 

The poster is a 24” x 18” three color screen print on 100 lb Classic Crest Cream paper, and a variant edition of 10pt rainbow foil. We produced four separate color variations in total, with two exclusive to the DKNG store. Check out our initial concept sketch below along with close up photos of the finished prints, and a time-lapse video documenting our process of designing the poster.
