I'm Beth and I'm a recent architecture graduate living in the Washington DC area.
For my project I'm working on a poster for Needtobreathe.
Poster Specs: Needtobreathe The Drive All Night Tour 2013 with Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors Thursday, May 9, 2013 Doors open: 6pm
I'm going to this show this spring and really excited to. Needtobreathe's music is southern rock with a lot of soul and blues. The groups is a pair of brothers and two other guys. I've been listening them for years now. They have their own unique style that I really enjoy
A lot of gig posters I have see for Needtobreathe all stay close to showing some kind of imagery of the name. Either something underwater or trying to breathe. Because of that I tried to stay away from that.
A lot to my thoughts when to the idea of driving or the night sky. A lot of the time I put their music on when I driving. I can just imagine a simple illustrated vintage truck driving. Either that or focusing on the dashboard of a car. Thinking about the night sky, one of the ideas I had was to do a simple juxtaposition of the moon and some stars and then simple text at the bottom or drawing their name up in the stars.
So far I only have three very basic sketches. Just kind of outlining what could be options there are. I haven't really figured out a color scheme, but I know I want a darker poster that would fit with the bands image.
