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.

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.

Radiohead Berkeley, CA Poster

One of our favorite bands in the world, Radiohead, recently played two nights of shows at the iconic Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA, and we were thrilled to create the gig poster for the run. We were inspired by the band’s recent abstract aesthetic as well as the lush setting of the Greek Theatre on UC Berkeley’s campus, and came up with a composition printed on three different paper colors to add some variety to the print edition. 

The poster is an 18” x 24” three color screen print with numbered artist editions of 20 on each of three different papers - French Pop-Tone Lemon Drop, French Pop-Tone Red Hot, and Gmund Matt 34. The posters also feature a metallic silver ink which you can check out in close up photos of the prints below, along with our initial design exploration.

Alabama Shakes Berkeley Poster

This weekend, Alabama Shakes played to a sold out crowd at Berkeley, California’s Greek Theatre. We created the poster for the show which was inspired by the band’s current monochromatic aesthetic and dreamy lyrics. The poster is an 18” x 24” one color screen print on French Pop-Tone Black Licorice. The poster features metallic bronze ink which can be seen in the closeup photos below, as well as our initial concept sketch. You can now purchase the gig poster in the DKNG Store. This poster will also be released as an art print in the coming months with a new metallic ink color scheme.
