Report from the Land of FOO:
Greg Cook and I are so excited to be working with AS220 as the Visiting Artists for this year’s Foo Fest in Providence, RI.
Here is how the Foo Fest 2017 poster design has turned out so far. Dave liked the AS220 Empire St. Building walking down the street playing a bass drum, and I was glad because I like that one, too! It got a little crazy trying to fit in all the band names, but then again, this event IS a little crazy and there ARE a LOT of bands! I’ll let you know how it all comes out in the end.
Update: Lightning Bolt is going to be the headlining band! Whoo hoo! Now for a bit of a re-design.
Here are some idea sketches for the Foo Fest Poster. Don’t let the lines distract you or worry that the imagery will be unclear in places. I plan to do most of the design in solid color blocks without a lot of outlines, so design elements that need to stand out will be made clear by use of color and tone. (Visit my posters page for examples of other final work) Also, don’t worry about space: these are mostly concept sketches: all the compositions have wiggle room to re-compose to fit whatever text they need to accommodate, also, I can change the words or elements around if you like some things together that are not currently, I can sort of mix and match. I gave them #s and titles for ease of discussion, not for any hierarchy at all. Keeping those things in mind, which idea do you like for FOO 2017?
