Gig Poster

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
