Are you ready for another Ram Jam party?
Another epic poster by Baden Moir showing the great contrast of the African landscapes, elephants and skylines. Awesome.
Here is how:
1) All you have to do is to get these on your wall, and double tickets to the event this Friday, is tell us why they would look awesome in your flat/house/dogbox in the comment box below, or….
2) If you want you can even tweet by clicking on the button below.
Whichever works for you.
Marchand again. This gig is a charity event raising funds for the JAG Foundation, which in turn will contribute to entry for two hopeful Cape Epic cyclists. Rather them than me.
Loving this poster by Baden Moir. Each ‘issue’ will be a comic book cover featuring the artists. Wow.
Bruno Morphet again, and I bet you can’t guess the icon in this poster. If you can i’m guessing you are old like me.
Very cool and exposed poster by Andre Pereira for Beast. Loving the margins and the neat type.
This is what I’m looking forward to most this week. What might be the weirdest but funnest lineup I have seen in a while.
Karl Schulschenk should be blamed for the super rad pixel poster.
The poster by Simon Pocock is pretty rad, and has the wooden disc that houses the EP on it.
I have never seen a release this spectacular before. There will be 20 limited edition, vinyl sized disks designed by Bison, Stuart Ziegler, Givan Lotz, Sebastian Borchenhagen and Dale Lawrence. They will be auctioned off pretty soon, but the smaller pocket sized EP disc will be on sale on all of these nights. That is something special.
Lovely poster from Peachfish for what looks like a mighty fine Sunday gig. Make sure to attend this one.
Second poster in the latest series of Fiction Friday posters by Bruno Morphet.
I just love this poster. The illustrations will be printed on archival paper and presented as limited editions of only 30.
As always click the poster to go to the facebook event.
I stumbled onto this beautiful poster last week and was blown away with the illustration and work that went into this. The illustration was done by Ree Treweek and the typography by Thea Nicole De Klerk. The benefit gig for Flying Needle Project at Mercury is bound to be a hit, and you are supporting a good cause.
One of my favourite bands in Cape Town, Yes Sir! Mister Machine, just released the music video for ‘Cold Rush Song’ and I can’t help but feel left out.
On the 28th of April 2012, a group of creatives came together to make a stand against not only the stagnation of their own tiny underground in a city at the bottom of Africa, but also as a reminder that a little passion can go a long way. This music video documents that experience.
I should be in that video too. I feel the same way. I thought…. Ok, I’ll stop now.
This is rather exciting. Bruno Morphet released the first of a the Fiction Icons poster series.
The series will include characters from fiction and popular culture. The fun bit would be to identify the character, which could potentially be quite tricky, depending on which era you grew up in. Eventually these will be released as limited edition prints.
This one should not be too difficult, who will guess it first?
Now for my little rant. Why do we not see more of these initiatives? Clubs and artists all realise that an eye catching poster draws attention to the event, but for some reason most bands and clubs do not put any effort into it. There were times when I went to a gig solely because of the poster, and I am certainly not the only one. I do realise that it costs money to pay a designer to make the poster for you, but without marketing your event no one will pitch anyway, so drop the few hundred that most willing designers ask. There is a whole list of them to your right, and I put them there for a reason. Use it.
I have so much respect for the clubs, bands, DJ’s and designers who spend money and time on these beautiful pieces of art. So much so that I spend many hours on the internet searching for the next awesome gig poster to feature. Some weeks it is hard to find more than 3 decent posters in the whole country. It seems crazy but true.
Make me happy please. In turn it might change your next events turnout. Who knows?
It’s Andrew Ringrose! Clean, pretty and awesome.
