Here is the poster design for the upcoming FITC Awards Party taking place on Monday, April 26 during the conference. My good pal Chris Toms and programming ninja Steven Sacks will be doing a DJ stint at the party, and we thought it would be fun to create a Signalnoise poster as a bit of fun promotion. As it turns out, this design will be landing in the official FITC program as well, so if you’re heading to the conference keep an eye out.
Like some of my recent designs, the inspiration for this one was taken from 80s metal. I wanted to develop a poster that was simply over the top, beat-up, maybe a little sun-bleached, something that might reside on the wall of a rocker kid in 1985 or a tour poster for Judas Priest. If you grew up in that era, you know what I’m talking about. After doing some research, I decided the evil knight was the way to go which was pieced together using a number of armor shots.
I will be doing a small print run of this design to be available at the conference via myself, Chris and Steven. I’ll nail down the details soon to see how we can get these into peoples’ hands.
