Part of a campaign for a series of concerts (Including Simian Mobile Disco) that are happening right next door to me. The poster looked better than the flyer in my opinion, as the way they diplayed data thematically was more visually interesting.
Saw this my second day into London, stumbling upon "The Crypt," the dungeony basement of St. Pancras Church that features art exhibitions. This week it is "Mine," a show of expirimental video and photographic works my the MA students at the Maidstone Campus of the University for the Creative Arts. The flyer is done by Irina Rusakova, who is also featured in the exhibition.
Found this on my window after a show in Costa Mesa. Not does it look like a wrestler's mask on the front and back, it's also perforated on the eyes, nose and mouth so that you can actually use the mask yourself. If you click on the images, you can see that they even left holes for a string. Clever.
For a while now, I've been trying to figure out how one would watch this film outside Canada. It's a documentary following the indie-poster scene, with what looks like some cool interviews and insight with some talented graphic designers and artists. If anyone knows how I can get a hold or a view of this, I'm begging here.
A few more selections from Pearl Jam vs. Ames Bros, continued from my previous post a while back. I'd never imagine that talent as great and popular as Ames Bros would have to do promotional efforts for themselves, but the last piece shows that they can do it well.
Fresh off the streets of San Francisco, I wish I was able to make this event. Simple, clear and bold from the symbol to the type, this piece gets its message across clearly and succinctly, while looking nice at the same time.
Really might attract the wrong crowd, but I thought this was interesting because it took on the cut-and-paste magazine appeal but is a bit cleaner (rather than utterly jittery and choppy). The pornstar could be a little more explicit and the halftone could be better, but it does grab the eye off a rack of gig flyers.
