The Decemberists 2018 Tour Poster

The Decemberists are back on the road with their Your Girl/Your Ghost World Tour 2018 and we were excited to take on tour poster duties for the first U.S. leg of the tour. We were inspired by girly/ghostly imagery coupled with the surreal look of their most recent album and music videos. In addition to the main tour poster, we also created a color variant version for the tour’s VIP attendees.

Each poster is an 18” x 24” four color screen print on Cougar Natural 100lb cover stock, with signed and numbered editions of 900 for the tour poster and 2,050 for the VIP poster. Check out our initial concept sketch below along with close-up photos of the finished prints, as well as a video documenting our process of designing the poster. The Decemberists tour poster is now available in the DKNG Store.

VIP POSTER

Van Morrison Los Angeles, CA Poster

One of our favorite artists, Van Morrison, is back on the road this year, and we had the privilege of creating a poster for his two-night stop in Los Angeles. We had fun with the Vegas poster we created for Van during his 2017 tour, and decided to add to the series with a Southern California themed neon sign, also printed on metallic rainbow foil.

The poster is an 18” x 24” three color screen print on 10pt Rainbow Foil with a signed and numbered edition of 275. Check out our initial concept sketch below along with close up photos of the finished print, and a process video documenting the design of the poster.

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.

Radiohead Berkeley, CA Poster

One of our favorite bands in the world, Radiohead, recently played two nights of shows at the iconic Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA, and we were thrilled to create the gig poster for the run. We were inspired by the band’s recent abstract aesthetic as well as the lush setting of the Greek Theatre on UC Berkeley’s campus, and came up with a composition printed on three different paper colors to add some variety to the print edition. 

The poster is an 18” x 24” three color screen print with numbered artist editions of 20 on each of three different papers - French Pop-Tone Lemon Drop, French Pop-Tone Red Hot, and Gmund Matt 34. The posters also feature a metallic silver ink which you can check out in close up photos of the prints below, along with our initial design exploration.

This past weekend, Phish performed two nights of sold out shows at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park in Alpharetta, GA, and we were thrilled to design a diptych poster set for the gig. While the two brontosauruses depicted might not be native residents of Georgia, they are enjoying the state’s famous peaches as they face off against each other. 

Each poster is an 18” x 24” four color screen print on French Construction Cement Green paper with a super limited artist edition of 50 available for sale.
