Dan Webb New Zealand Tour poster 2012 11x17" Offset

Dan Webb, a singer-songwriter from Australia with a focus on somewhat experimental progressive pop, contacted me in winter 2011/12 to create a Dan Webb New Zealand Tour poster 2012 for a mini-tour he was doing in New Zealand. As I do with every poster I do for an artist I'm unfamiliar with, I listened to his current record (at the time 2010's Hyperspace Clearance ) to find my way in, as it were to get a feel for where Dan's head was at and that would define my angle of attack here.

His songs had a kind of manic energy, a bit jumpy but focused and clean. So that's where I'd start: hard geometry and a crisp palette.  80s new wave airbrush flourishes and some nice interplay between line and curve and maybe some painterly swashes to loosen things up. The more playful side of psychedelia. It always amazes me how versatile a stylized pair of big red lips is in a psychedelic setting. It can comfortably exist in a surrealist setting in virtually any decade you want.

I cant take credit for the awesome logotype. It was an existing asset and one of the few provisos given in the design brief, but it's a great focal point for the art and I think I found a way to couch it elegantly into the design.

During this period, I was doing a lot of stuff with sharp geometry  and hard angles and this one certainly fits in with that theme.
