Back to the Future Poster and Variant

We’ve always been big fans of the Back to the Future franchise and hoped to someday have the opportunity to illustrate the iconic DeLorean from the film. Thanks to Mondo, that dream came true in the form of both vinyl packaging and now two ultra large 36” x 24" limited edition screen prints. 

The art itself is inspired in many ways by the depictions of the DeLorean that came before it. We knew that a profile view of the car has been interpreted by countless artists in many beautiful ways, so our goal was to create a new take on this viewpoint by zeroing in on the detail of the time machine, both exterior and interior through the open gull-wing doors, all while having fun with including a few easter eggs. Creating the main edition of the poster in a neon 80’s color palette was a must, but just in case it wasn’t colorful enough, we created the variant edition on rainbow foil for an extra shimmery effect.

Each posters is a 36” x 24” four color screen print. The main artist edition of 60 prints is signed and numbered by DKNG on 100 lb. white cover stock. The variant has a super limited edition of 35 and is printed on 10pt metallic rainbow foil. Both prints are available in the DKNG Store on Monday, January 7, at 10am PST. Limit one of each poster per customer, these prints are limited editions that will not be reprinted. Check out close up photos of the finished prints below.

Back to the Future Trilogy Box Set

In 2015 we arrived in the future that Marty McFly visits in Back to the Future Part II, and to commemorate the historic date, Mondo released a first ever box set of the musical score from all three films. We were thrilled to collaborate with them on the package design which, as Mondo explains, was the first of its kind: 

“We're thrilled to unveil a 6-LP vinyl box set for the trilogy for one of the most celebrated film scores of all time, with music fully restored from original master recordings under the supervision of composer Alan Silvestri. This marks the first time the score has ever been made available in a box set in any format, the first time the original film score has been available on vinyl and includes never-before-released tracks from the sequels. The collectible packaging for the box set was designed by DKNG Studios, highlighting the DeLorean’s iconic fire trails in each film’s setting. Screenwriter Bob Gale contributed exclusive liner notes for the box set.”
