    Wooden posters for Animal Collective tours.
These wooden tour posters were made for House Industries' Ken Barber and Ben Kiel's type design and lettering class at MICA. The setup was to design a modular typeface and make pieces that only utilized the type we created and its modules. 
I chose two different albums/tours from the Baltimore native band Animal Collective: Strawberry Jam, and Merryweather Post Pavillion. The project began with the idea of having these wooden pieces be the negative from which paper posters can be mass-produced by pressing the paper on them and running chalk over them.
The type itself is composed of 7 repeating parts, or modules. Some of these modules were also used to create the patterns on the posters themselves.
