New Signalnoise poster: Awesome

Awesome poster by James White

Here is the second new Signalnoise poster to be launched today, simply entitled Awesome. This poster represents all things metal: Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and Metallica’s Ride the Lightning. I developed the handmade typography a few weeks back and finally found it a suitable home, on a poster 7 year-old James would have lost his mind over back in the 80s. Here is a larger version.

Yes, the guitar is huge as it fell to earth from the hands of god. Insert Maiden solo here.

Other then being the first Signalnoise poster designed in landscape format, it also stands at 40″ x 27″, far bigger then my other prints available in the store. This will be sent to proof next week to see how all the photography looks, and will hopefully land in the Signalnoise Store soon afterward.

Stay heavy.

    I don’t have words.

  8. I can feel a surge of awesome rushing through my body.

  9. This looks … well … awesome!!

    One question I do have, is in regards to the orange glow in the middle of the “o”. Considering that there is nothing behind the letter that is orange, it sort of looks like a mistake to me.

    Anyways, nice work!

    After you mentioned Judas Priest it clicked with whole lot of nostalgia – Point of Entry US cover, Heading out to the Highway video, K.K. Downing’s Flying V…
    Plus Deep Purple’s live album Nobody’s Perfect.

    Man, I had no idea you were making a poster all about me! If I could get that as a full back tattoo I would finally be the person I always dreamed I’d be.
