wood type wednesdays

AS220‘s Foo Fest is an annual outdoor concert outside the venue in Providence, RI. The fest had a whole slew of bands last year and AS220 asked different artists to create and print posters for the individual bands playing the fest. I was lucky enough to get paired with the legendary Sun Ra Arkestra, and I created this design using four layers of fluorescent inks printed with wood type.

Most of the stuff that gets printed around here is on flat paper or cardstock – I do some bags or envelopes here and there, cd/record packaging, you know the deal. So, when the fine folks at AS220 said they were sending up a hundred blank pizza boxes to throw into the print run for the Foo Fest poster I was doing, I was pretty stoked. The boxes were used at the Nice Slice pizza shop as promotion for the show, and the posters were sold at the show along with the posters featuring the other artists involved.

The poster is available for purchase in my etsy shop here.
