Dave Matthews Band Noblesville Live Trax Poster

Occasionally Dave Matthews Band will release a limited variant gig poster to be paired with a new addition to their Live Trax recording series from their live shows. We were happy to hear that the band’s recent Noblesville, Indiana concert was one such show, so we’re excited to announce the rerelease of our Noblesville poster in a special limited metallic color variant. 

The new poster is an 18” x 24” three-color screen print on 10pt gold foil cover stock. Check out a few close-up photos of the finished prints below. You can view our initial concept sketch and a video covering our design process in our original blog post. The Dave Matthews Band Noblesville Live Trax poster is available in a very limited artist edition of 60 prints in the DKNG Store. Due to the limited nature, the sale is restricted to only one print per customer, and once the poster sells out it will not be available in the future.

Dave Matthews Band Boston, MA Poster

As Dave Matthews Band wraps up another year of touring, we were excited to take on another gig poster for the band, this time for their show in Boston, Massachusetts. We were inspired by a cold winter night on the Boston Harbor, lit by the famous Boston Light lighthouse, and we contained the whole scene in a classic camping lantern, complete with moths buzzing around the flame.  

The poster is an 18” x 24” three-color screen print on Neenah Paper Patriot Blue 100 lb cover stock. Check out a few close-up photos of the finished prints below, along with our initial concept sketch, and a video covering our design process.

DKNG + Mondo Official Gremlins Pin Set

As children of the ‘80s, we grew up with the movie Gremlins and were thrilled to partner with Mondo to produce an officially licensed set of three enamel pins commemorating the movie. The series includes Gizmo in three iconic scenes including Showtime (Gizmo sings for the first time while playing the piano), Uh Oh (Gizmo hiding inside the motorcycle helmet), and Beep Beep (Gizmo behind the wheel in the Malibu Barbie toy convertible).

The Gremlins soft enamel pins all include a copper die cast finish, and heavy duty rubber backing clasps. Available individually or as of set of three at a special rate. Check out photos of the pins below by the talented Wonderful Mystical. The Gremlins pins are now available in the DKNG Store

DKNG ‘Black Wheel’ Playing Cards

Just in time for Black Friday is our new deck of Black Wheel Playing Cards! They’re the same great quality as the originals, manufactured by the United States Playing Card Company, and with a fresh new color palette. With the help of our friends Dan & Dave at Art of Play, we designed a completely original deck from the tuck case to the face cards and everything in between, now available in your choice of black, red, blue, or green. The tuck case includes an embossed black-on-black foil stamp on thick kraft paper and a new complementary color palette for the cards. These are standard Poker size playing cards with an air-cushion finish, just like the Bicycle cards you’re used to from the U.S. Playing Card Co. Check out closeup images of the cards below. ‘Black Wheel’ decks are now available in the DKNG Store.

Mighty Ducks of Anaheim Anniversary Poster

It’s not often that the gig poster and sports worlds collide, so we were excited to take on a project for the Anaheim Ducks to commemorate their 25th season. The 10 poster series includes lots of great artists and for our contribution, we were asked to pay tribute to the team's ’03-’06 era purple & black jerseys. 

The 16” x 20” giclee posters are part of a limited run of 100 numbered prints, with all proceeds benefiting local Anaheim non-profits. Available at the Honda Center while supplies last, 20 of the posters will be signed by Ducks players. Check out the artwork above as well as our initial concept sketch below.

Grand Canyon at Night National Park Poster

We’re excited to announce the followup to our original Grand Canyon National Park poster as part of the Fifty-Nine Parks poster series celebrating all of America’s National Parks. The Grand Canyon provides all kinds of experiences based on the time of day, so for this poster we attempted to capture the dusk through nightfall atmosphere at the park, capturing both the last moments of sun casting light on the red cliff faces, while also seeing the stars and Milky Way come into view at this epic stargazing location. The park’s wildlife also makes appearances at night, including the mountain lion pictured in this illustration. 

The poster is an 18” x 24” five color screen print on 100 lb. French Construction Pure White paper and is part of an open edition. Check out our initial sketch of the poster below as well as close-up photos of the finished print. The Grand Canyon at Night National Park poster is now available in the DKNG Store.

Almanac Beer Co. 16 oz Fresh Beer Series

We love designing labels for all of the limited, special edition beers that Almanac creates, but we also love the beers that are most likely to find a home in a bottle shop near you. That’s why we’re happy to introduce Almanac’s new line of 16oz fresh beers that will be available year round, and with nationwide distribution. LOVE Hazy IPA, LOUD! Hazy DIPA, and VIBES Pilsner. Printed on metallized label stock, these super sparkly cans also contain a not-so-hidden word inside each geometric pattern. You can also try these new beers on draft at Almanac’s two bay area taprooms.

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.
