When creating a gig poster for the awesome band Sleigh Bells, I knew I wanted to incorporate some of the strong imagery they use in their music videos. I watched all of their music videos (multiple times) and took note of some of the objects they either used or I thought would fit in with the grouping. I then illustrated the objects by hand, and used some of the lyrics from songs as labels on the products. They have a very melodic singer, Alexis Krauss, mixed with an almost violent guitars. In order to communicate that with the print, I used playful colors and type. Combined with the bizarre and almost violent grouping of objects, I managed to capture the feeling of their music through image. This was then screen printed with the intent to misalign some of the edges to further push the aesthetic I was aiming for.
Disclaimer: This poster was unfortunately NOT created for Sleigh Bells, it was for a student project.
