Posters for Hard Fest that keep a consistent theme of vibrantly colored fog.
The RYB colorway fog coalesce nicely, and the in-your-face text is both appealing and easy to read.


Giovanni Montuori

Giovanni putting it down from Genova Italy--a graphic design specialist having finished his master degree from the infamous Politecnico di Milano.

Below are two of his works he's designed for music festivals in Italy, both of which I chose to include the drafts for to show the differences made in coming up with the final product so you can decide for yourself which one you favor.

Prints and Designs from Jody Barton - Creator of Phoenix's album cover Wolfgang Amadeus

If Jody Barton transformed his design credentials and awards into military rankings, he'd be an extremely decorated officer.  It's no wonder, then, that he was commissioned to do the latest album cover for Phoenix's last release, Wolfgan Amadeus.  However, his other work is extremely notable and thought-provoking at the same time.  This London-based artist is not stuck on one design style either, as you can tell by his beautiful watercolor works.  Check out his blog and website too, it's pretty fun to click around.

Check out the story and photos of the printing process of Phoenix's last album cover on Jody's blog.
