Planet Brain poster #2

I have always enjoyed the poster making part of event promotions. There’s something interesting about designing graphic works for public places that are meant to stand out amongst those of one’s (hopefully) friendly competitors. People who remember the Dubliminal and Face Off nights with Bubblebrain and others several years ago will no doubt recall the eccentricity with which we formed our graphic identity. Lee and Fluff were very important to that venture back when I used an Atari to run a sequencer but Photoshop was a complete mystery to me. It is the aim for this current project to create a visual theme consistent through the series of nights, and HAVIENDA (not a logo as such just text in Poplar Std font) used in a variety of shades and textures is part of that approach. It makes me very happy when others, bands, friends or supporters, take the time to contribute ideas fitting the scheme. Dan Sharpe, the creator of music.je which is the essential and best designed online resource for news of local music events, has produced an alternative poster for the Planet Brain gig this Friday.
