New gig poster for EYEHATEGOD, Cro-Mags, Burn Blue Sky, Fistula and Goosed.
Downpour Creative recently designed the collateral for Kent Standing Rock’s “Who’s Your Mama Festival”
The theme for this year was conservation and extinction. We wanted to focus on some animals that are going extinct or had already gone extinct. We dug up some very old educational images and got to work.
Remember when I said we used to google search random things and make terrible flyers. Well, here is an example of an extremely terrible flyer I made.
Obviously Danny Tanner did not present anything. And the spacing in the type is atrocious. The typography itself is atrocious. The whole flyer is atrocious. We played this show at The Orange Street. Which one you ask? Anyone who was in the Kent/Akron music scene had to know about the Orange Street. I think there were three of them? No, four. Four. This show was played at the one on Main Street that was located next to building and painted orange. The one with a 7 foot ceiling and poles everywhere. Anywho, that’s that for that flyer. That.
So I said I loved house shows right? I do. And this is a flyer I made for my favorite show we’ve ever played. There are a lot of reasons this was my favorite show ever. One being it was a house show. Two, there were a TON of people there. Three, triceratops played. Four, we filmed our set and Search Bloc’s set and I put out my first actual “Man Of War” release “Eviction Party DVD”. Fourth, it was really wild. The idea was that friends were getting evicted so let’s have a giant BBQ/Party and go wild. After a wall that separated two rooms was knocked down the cops got called and I’m not really sure on what happened after that. Anyway, it was one of those really great nights.
Another flyer I made. Apparently while just learning how to use illustrator again. Illustrator is probably my least used program from the adobe main programs but as a student once you have live trace it’s like all bets are off. Nice use of graffiti font too man…
