BRIEF
Create a concert poster that reflects the musical performances of Paul Dresher, an eccentric an innovative performer. Everything from the composition to the typography must reflect the experience that attendees would be enjoying.

CONCEPT
Paul Dresher is famous for his unorthodox instrumentation, making his performances interesting both audibly and visually. I put together a composite photograph of a hand and a macro photograph of guitar strings in order to focus on Dresher’s intricate musicianship. There is a lot of contrast, and the image uses very hot colors, paying homage to the incredibly kinetic nature of his shows. The type is also skewed in such a way that implies movement.
