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.

The Decemberists 2017 Tour Poster

The Decemberists just took the West Coast by storm and we were happy to be tasked with creating a poster for the tour. We were inspired by Pacific Northwest road-tripping and the giant Sequoias and Redwoods that line the coast.

The poster is an 18” x 24” three color screen print on French Speckletone Madero Beach 100lb cover stock, with a signed and numbered edition of 950. 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 Berkeley Poster

On May 1, The Decemberists performed to a sold out crowd at Berkeley, California’s Greek Theatre and we were thrilled to create the official poster for the Bay Area’s own Another Planet Entertainment. The design was inspired by the nineteenth century folklore of the band’s lyrics and signature accordion sound.

The poster is a three color screen print on French Speckletone Kraft paper with a limited artist edition of 50 prints. Check out our initial sketch below along with close up photos of the finished print. The Decemberists poster is now available in the DKNG Store. This design will also be made into an art print and sold in the coming months.
