The Black Angels poster.

Black Angels Poster

The folks at the Free Press Summer Fest asked me to design a poster for The Black Angels, who'll be one of the Fest's headliners in June. This was such a neat project to work on. I knew I wanted to avoid any clichéd psychedelic imagery for this design, since it's almost expected and, well, just not my style.

So, I channeled the likes of Saul Bass / Noma Bar / Jason Munn and decided to represent the band via a large, modern "crest." They're tambourine-lovin' and whiskey-fueled, and singer Alex Maas always wears his signature newsboy cap... so, I ran with it.

The poster will be screen-printed with three colors, and available for sale early summer. Stay tuned!
