Adam Hill Studio Visit

We are very proud to bring you our first studio visit, and the first of many in the near future.

You have seen many of Adam Hill‘s awesome posters on this blog and the international design and poster blogs love him too. Regular features on sites like graphic-exchange and flyer goodness makes him a local design hero in our books, and him being so humble about his work makes it all the more worthwhile.

We had a chat with him at the studio he shares with Emma Cook, Jordan Metcalf and Daniel Ting Chong at the Woodstock Industrial Center, he showed us around and here we present him to you.

Video shot and edited by Gerald Van Wyk and Chris Slabber.
You can follow him on twitter at : @adamhillspeaks or
check his portfolio of work on Flickr



Here’s a selection of some of our favourite gig poster work by Adam.

Verb Activist Tribute Series screenprints

We found this video from the Verb website giving you some more insight on the printing process behind their Activist Tribute Series. #1 features Nelson Mandela in the the style of Shepard Fairey and it was hand screenprinted by I Love Screenprinting.

By now you should know that we get excited by screenprinting, and so should you.




School Nights 13 - 16 June 2011

You have been holding your breath, and it is time to inhale. School Nights are back, and what a comeback.

Depending on your city, you have a busy week ahead of you. Hope you have enough cash lying about. Come back on Wednesday for your weekend poster fix.

Slechte Mensen video launch

Bittereinder have just announced that the video for Slechte Mensen will be launched at Arcade Empire on Friday night. You must have noticed Louis Minnaar‘s poster for the I Love P(each) Town gig in the previous post, and to celebrate the launch he made this cool poster.

Hope you like it.




8 - 12 June 2011

By now you should have entered our competition for tickets to the Ashtray Electric album launch on Saturday and Discotheque on Friday, it’s gonna be huge.

We have a lot of talent in South Africa and today’s post just confirms that. Artists, bands and venues are working together to bring you some of the biggest and best lineups, and you end up having to choose, or just go to all of them in your city.

If you like what you see, be so kind and tell all your friends, post it on your Facebook wall or tweet about it. Promoting great art and great gigs will see our music scene thrive, and we all benefit from that.

See you at the gigs!

We hope you have entered the competitions in the previous two posts. We are doing this for you, you know.

Anyway, good to see Andrew Ringrose back in action after a short break and Freddy Sam brings back those childhood memories of Tipex on anything we could find including Space Cases, rulers and pictures of unicorns.

See you at the gigs!
