How To Destroy Angels

How To Destroy Angels - student project


For the uninitiated, from Wikipedia:

"How to Destroy Angels is a musical group featuring Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor, his wife Mariqueen MaandigAtticus Ross, and Rob Sheridan (who is also the group's art director). The group is named after a 1984 Coil single of the same name."


Music Genre & Influences: Post-Industrial, Experimental, Electornica, Ambient, Folk

At a Glance: They are a relatively young band, though supported by a large pool of talent in the forms of Trent Reznor And Atticus Ross. Their fan base is steadily growing with a debut full length album coming out March 5, 2013 titled "Welcome Oblivion". The band's first live performance will be at Coachella in 2013.

Project Goal:

- Design and illustrate a commemorative tour poster for "How To Destroy Angels"

- Use The Debut Album's title "Welcome Oblivion" as a basis for the poster design in conjunction with the bands name
