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.

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

Pemberton Music Festival Poster

This past weekend the Pemberton Music Festival took British Columbia by storm and we teamed up with the festival to create a poster showcasing the amazing roster of artists that performed. Pemberton takes place in a unique location among the trees and towering mountains of Whistler, so we used the scenery to inspire a unique treehouse environment for the festival to take shape. The print is an 18” x 24” five color screen print on Cougar Natural 100 lb paper with an edition size of 550. Check out our initial sketch below as well as close up photos of the finished print. The poster is now available in the DKNG Store.

Jack White Live in Charlotte

Jack White // Charlotte, NC poster by DKNG

We’re excited to announce the latest poster we’ve created for the legendary Jack White for his June 5 show in Charlotte, North Carolina. Jack is currently touring in support of his new album Lazaretto. Taking inspiration from some of the album’s lyrics, we were inspired by the title track’s opening line “my veins are blue and connected,” and created the resulting dual image.

The poster is a two-color screen print on French Construction Blacktop paper. The print is unique in that it includes a separate split-fountain on each layer creating the blended gradients that span the design. Check out a few closeup images of the poster below as well as our original sketch. The poster is now available in the DKNG Store.
