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. The Mumford & Sons Colorado poster will be available Friday, August 16th, at 7am PST in the DKNG Store.

Bison Art Print

For those that caught a glimpse of our most recent Skillshare.com class, Illustration for Designers, we took a step by step look at our process of illustrating a geometrically styled animal. We chose to illustrate a Bison face for the class, and that illustration is now available as an art print in the DKNG store. Bison is a 16” x 20” three-color art print on 100 lb. French Speckletone Cream paper. The print marks the introduction to our new line of smaller, 16” x 20” art prints that are the perfect size for any wall. Bison is also our first print to combine both halftone dots and dither dots in a single print for a unique combination of textures. Check out our initial sketch below as well as closeup photos of the new printing method. You can learn about the process behind the print and how to create your own geometric animal at Skillshare.com
