METRIC Poster

BAND NAME
I chose one of my favourite bands, METRIC, who just released their latest album Pagans in Vegas yesterday (09/18/15). I hand-lettered lyrics from the album's first single, The Shade.

FINAL POSTER

After a bit of colourway exploration, I settled on this purple and teal combination (colours I chose from PANTONE'S CYMK Uncoated book). The final image has the colours set to Multiply so you can see how they might print.
METRIC's Pagans in Vegas album and The Shade song in particular are very synthy, and make me think of outerspace. I made the stars digitally using the Ellipse tool and Roughen effect in Illustrator - they represent the synthy little blips both at the beginning of the song and throughout.

This is my first design for screen printing. I'd appreciate any feedback! :)
