Mumford & Sons Phoenix, AZ Poster

As Mumford & Sons continue their US tour, we were happy to followup our Colorado poster for the band with a new gig poster for their Phoenix show. We were inspired by the title of their new album Delta, and fused the concept of a river delta with a literally snaking river. The surrounding landscape was inspired by Arizona farmland.

The poster is an 18” x 24” four color screen print on French Kraft-tone Manila Yellow 100 lb cover stock, with a limited artist edition of 100 prints. Check out close up photos of the poster below along with our initial concept sketch, and a video documenting our design process. The Mumford & Sons Arizona poster will be available Tuesday, September 24th, at 7am PST in the DKNG Store.

The National Greek Theatre L.A. Poster

The National returns to Los Angeles for 2019, and we wanted to followup our last L.A. freeway-centric poster for them with a more scenic part of Southern California. We decided to take on an aerial view of the beach including a lifeguard observing a stingray out in the water. This poster design originally included a shark in the ray’s place, but days before the concert, Matt Berninger was stung by a stingray while surfing, so we updated the art to reflect the true to life experience of the band.

The National Greek Theatre poster is an 18” x 24” five color screen print on 100lb Cougar Natural cover stock with a limited artist edition of 100 prints. Check out our original concept sketch and closeup photos of the prints below, along with a video documenting our design process. The National Greek Theatre L.A. will be available in the DKNG store on Tuesday, September 3, 2019.

Mumford & Sons Colorado Poster

Mumford & Sons just played Greenwood Village, Colorado, and we took inspiration from the Colorado mountains for the official poster for the show. In addition to the idyllic location, we also wanted to capture the effortless power of the band’s sound, through a larger than life bison carved into the mountainside.

The poster is an 18” x 24” three color screen print on French Kraft-Tone Manila 100 lb cover stock, with a limited artist edition of 75 prints. Check out close up photos of the poster below along with our initial concept sketch, and a video documenting our design process.

Dave Matthews Band Bristow, VA Poster

For our latest poster for Dave Matthews Band for a show in Bristow, VA, some fitting inspiration seemed to be the band’s song "Virginia in the Rain”. We were inspired by the lyrics Come on let’s go there, let’s jump right in, We will rope swing to river swim, Virginia naked in the rain. Based on that sentiment, we created a fantastical world for a couple to swim, complete with their very own rope swing.

The poster is an 18” x 24” four-color screen print on Cougar Natural 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. The Dave Matthews Band Bristow, VA 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. The Bristow poster goes on sale at 9am PST on Friday, July 26.

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.
