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. The Leon Bridges Los Angeles poster will be available in the DKNG Store on Monday, September 17, at 10am PST.

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.

Dave Matthews Band Noblesville, IN Poster

The poster is an 18” x 24” three-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 Noblesville, IN 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.

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.
