I just finished up a tour poster for The New Standards announcing their current Minnesota Arts Tour. It turned out to be a fun chance to play with type! The band wanted something clean, polished and contemporary, but still with an artsy twist.
I added a "music collage" band at the side for a friendly touch. For the type treatment of the band's name, I started with one of my current font favorites, Arquitecta by Latinotype. After setting and adjusting the type in Illustrator, I brought it into Photoshop and used a layer mask to create hand sketched lines across the type using my Wacom tablet. Super easy, but a classy result!
Happy to make work for such stellar musicians...be sure to catch one of their upcoming shows!
