Research & Brainstorming
I'll be creating a poster for the Spring 2013 tour for my boyfriend's band, A Hero A Fake. They're a progressive metal band with a young fanbase, so they'll need to give off the image of being tough and gritty, but also young and fun. I've been designing promo material for them for a few years, but this is the first time I've taken a stab at designing a poster for them, so I'm very excited!
The band's music is intricate, and that is definitely reflected in most of their artwork. Visually, they like a combination of science, space, nature and destruction.
I'll be making this poster for their upcoming tour in April. Since most of their show posters require other band logos and show info, this will just be a memorabilia piece they can throw up on the merch table. Sketches coming soon!
