Herbie Hancock Austin City Limits Poster

A giant of the jazz world and genre-bending pianist and composer, Herbie Hancock, just performed at ACL Live in Austin, TX, and we were honored to create a poster for the show. We were inspired by the intergalactic vibe of Herbie’s early work, as well as the setting of the venue in Texas hill country.

The poster is a four-color 18” x 24” screen print on 100 lb. Classic Crest Cream paper, with a limited edition of 300 prints. Check out our initial sketch of the poster below, along with close-up photos of the finished prints, as well as a video documenting our process of designing the poster. The Herbie Hancock ACL Live poster is now available in the DKNG Store

St. Paul & The Broken Bones 2017 Tour Poster

One of our favorite bands, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, just wrapped up their tour of the West Coast, and in addition to catching their incredible Portland and San Francisco shows in person, we were thrilled to design the poster for the tour. We were inspired by the powerful, often spiritual energy of the band, and created an epic, flaming pipe organ that might be at home in the band’s collection of instruments.

The poster is an 18” x 24” two color screen print on 12pt Mirri gold foil paper with an edition size of 550. Check out the metallic shine of the gold paper in the photos below, along with our initial concept sketch and a video documenting our design process. The St. Paul & The Broken Bones tour poster is now available in the DKNG Store

Almanac Beer Co. Tropical Galaxy

We’re excited to share our latest collaboration with Almanac Beer Co. on their new Tropical Galaxy beer, a Galaxy dry hopped sour farmhouse ale aged in oak barrels with mango, lime, and coconut. The name immediately conjured up imagery of 1960s sci-fi wrapped in a tropical vacation. We landed on a beach scene of an astronaut preparing to ride the waves of an alien planet, surrounded by the beer’s ingredients, along with some friendly alien wildlife.


Initial Concept Sketches

This project also gave us the opportunity to embrace the sci-fi cinema look by creating a limited edition poster to commemorate the beer’s release. The poster is an 18” x 24” 5 color screen print on rainbow metallic foil paper, giving the print a sparkling intergalactic appearance. The poster also made an appearance at the annual Screens ’n’ Suds charity event in Chicago with proceeds benefiting the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Mockingbird Foundation and Alzheimer's Association.

Almanac Beer Co. Tropical Galaxy Poster

Tropical Galaxy is now available at the Almanac Taproom in San Francisco and available throughout the country wherever finer beers are sold.

From Almanac:

"Tropical Galaxy is a cosmic elixir of lush equatorial flavors. We blended mangoes, lime and coconut together in oak foedres with our farmhouse-brett base beer to create a far out and funky tropical treat. We finished it with a generous dry-hopping of Australian Galaxy Hops, contributing aromas of passionfruit and citrus. Enjoy on your next intergalactic odyssey with fresh crab, jerk chicken or scallop ceviche."
