New Signalnoise poster: Liquid Gold 77

Liquid Gold 77 by James White

I’ve been very wrapped up with freelance work lately over the past few weeks, which has left very little time for me to work on my own designs. But I recently had a small window open to follow through with this new piece, entitled Liquid Gold 77. I really wanted to push a metallic style with this one, something I briefly experimented with on the Smashing Magazine poster I created last year. The 77 design actually stemmed from the freelance I am currently working on, but shifted over to the Signalnoise side.

Once again, the inspiration for this comes directly from old network promo animations from the late 70s and early 80s with over the top reflections and flares. Can’t get enough of that stuff.

This poster has already been sent to proof at the print shop, and will be landing in the Signalnoise Store in the coming week.

    It really looks and is very sharp! Although, not such a great year for births.

    Year before, much better.

  13. I wonder how you create the background….it’s amazing!

  14. I don’t know what your freelance project is, but the 77s are one of my favorite bands of all time. I’m thinking about how this poster would look in my office.
