311 Reno, NV Posters

311 just kicked off their Endless Summer tour and we’re excited to share our poster for the first stop of the tour in Reno, Nevada. We were inspired by the summer surf van vibes of the tour and created an illustration of our favorite surf-mobile along with a kook-stack of boards on the roof for all five band members. 

The poster is a 24” x 18” three color screen print on 100 lb Classic Crest Cream paper, and a variant edition of 10pt rainbow foil. We produced four separate color variations in total, with two exclusive to the DKNG store. Check out our initial concept sketch below along with close up photos of the finished prints, and a time-lapse video documenting our process of designing the poster. The 311 posters will be available Tuesday, July 24th, at 10am PST in the DKNG store. Very limited quantities available.

Adobe 'Learn Illustrator' Illustration

When Adobe launched Illustrator CC with its new ability to zoom in to your composition further than ever before, they commissioned us to create a hyper detailed illustration to demonstrate the new feature. That illustration of an astronaut inside his futuristic cockpit continues to make appearances in various Adobe tutorials including the current Illustrator launch screen.

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.”

Herbie Hancock Austin City Limits Poster

A giant of the jazz world and genre-bending pianist and composer, Herbie Hancock, just performed at ACL Live in Austin, TX, and we were honored to create a poster for the show. We were inspired by the intergalactic vibe of Herbie’s early work, as well as the setting of the venue in Texas hill country.

The poster is a four-color 18” x 24” screen print on 100 lb. Classic Crest Cream paper, with a limited edition of 300 prints. Check out our initial sketch of the poster below, along with close-up photos of the finished prints, as well as a video documenting our process of designing the poster. The Herbie Hancock ACL Live poster is now available in the DKNG Store
