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.

2018 Newport Folk Festival Poster

The historic Newport Folk Festival in Newport, Rhode Island has been taking place since 1959, so we were honored to create the official poster for the 2018 edition of the festival. The festival is very much a product of its picturesque environment, and we were inspired by nearby landmarks like the Goat Island Lighthouse and the Claiborne Pell Newport Bridge, along with a few fantastical elements added in to capture the magical nature of the festival. 

The poster is an 18” x 24” three color screen print on 100lb Cougar Natural cover stock with a signed and numbered edition of 1,050 (only 50 of which are available online). Check out our initial sketch of the poster below along with close up photos of the finished print. The 2018 Newport Folk Festival Poster will be available today (Monday, July 30th) at 12pm PST in the DKNG Store while supplies last.

Almanac Beer Co. Peach Galaxy

The much anticipated fruit forward brother of Almanac’s Tropical Galaxy is here, and we were honored to put a peachy spin on the packaging! Peach Galaxy is a dry-hopped sour farmhouse ale aged in oak barrels with peaches and spices. The Almanac galaxy series of beers inspired us to pursue a 1960s sci-fi style of illustration, and this new twist on the label includes plenty of new peach inspired touches as well as a new peach color scheme. You can check out our original Tropical Galaxy label here.

Peach Galaxy is now available at the Almanac Taproom in San Francisco, the new Almanac Brewery in Alameda, and available throughout the country wherever finer beers are sold.

From Almanac:

“Peach Galaxy is an intergalactic flavor odyssey! This stellar brew started with a blend of farmhouse Brettanomyces ales fermented with our house sour culture and aged in oak barrels. Next, 6,000 lbs of organic yellow peaches from Blossom Bluff Orchards in Northern California were added to the barrels to mature for several months. The beer was finished with a touch of coriander and a heavy cosmic dry-hop of Galaxy and Citra. The finished beer has an IPA-style aroma, backed by tart peach skin flavors and hints of gummy rings. Pair this out-of-this-world elixir with grilled ribs, ceviche, and peach coffee cake.”
