We were recently asked by ace rock band 'Riding The Low' to produce some design work for their annual 'Christmas Craptacular' in their hometown of Burton On Trent. The brief was "Christmas, skulls and Mexican wrestlers" so naturally we jumped at the chance. That kind of brief is right up our street.
The gig took place at 'The Tower Brewery' so it made sense to us to produce some flyers that doubled as beermats. They were letterpressed in gold and red onto thick uncoated beermat board by our mates EE Chrisp. A3 posters followed the same vibe, litho'd in red and gold onto two different stocks — thick newsprint and uncoated poster card. Posters were on sale at the gig on the 28th December for a festive £5; beermats were used at the venue on the night.
