poster design for a live music venue.
Whittles is a live music venue in Oldham. Having recently changed owners, the pub decided to re-vamp it’s promotional output.
Whittles caters for a wide range of music tastes, from rock to ska, original artists as well as tribute bands.
The venue requires a constant flow of both posters and social media posts for their live music nights.
I liaise with the owners at Whittles on a regular basis. Monthly schedules of acts are sent through and I work through these in chronological order.
The design process is different for each poster, however much of the prep remains the same each time.
Firstly, I’ll locate the act’s website or Facebook page in order to find suitable images to use. Next, I come up with a concept for the poster, this is often related to the genre of the band. For instance, a Meat Loaf tribute act may feature motorbikes and bats. A Taylor Swift tribute? Maybe not so much…
Finally, bold text is added giving details of the event and of course, the band’s name.
fully print ready.
Whittles get eye-catching posters with innovative, artistic solutions. A whole host of photo manipulation techniques go in to producing these unique designs.
