Back in the late eighties, my friend John had a three-piece rock band called “Planet People”. I designed posters for their gigs. Here are four different versions for some of their events:
In the first, I used a space-family theme. The lettering is crude and blocky, but it fits with the image.
With the second, I seem to be getting a handle on an eventual logo for the band. In designing a poster, one attempts to catch the eyes of passers-by, and so you have to have some visual pizzazz. I think I have managed to attain that here.
The third image features a lion-tamer and her charge. I like the balance of the greys and whites and the placement of the sun in this picture.
The last image features a maiden with a lute and an attentive primate. I think that there is a nice tension in this composition and an impressive simplicity to the marks.
It was fun to go through a box of posters done so long ago. Maybe I’ll share some more in the future!
Thanks to all the people out there on this planet who tune into my blog. Until next week,
