ICONIC POSTER SERIES

 

I love music. I also love posters. In fact, every gig that I go to see I always buy a poster because they are unique and they bring back memories from the concert. That's when I asked the question - Wouldn't it be amazing to create a gig poster for iconic bands/musicians with their most iconic album? What if the poster was designed in a style which could have been sold at one of their concerts?... and so it began.


The first poster is Pink Floyd - The Dark Side of the Moon (1973) as chosen by Dave Allen.

The poster design is inspired by the unforgettable original artwork of Hipgnosis and George Hardie from the cover sleeve, the original vinyl format of the album, and the meaning of the album.

Everything has been designed in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator with a Wacom Intous Pro tablet and my weapon of choice, a Macbook.
