About this Band

Pink Martini's music consists of beautiful, easy-to-listen, and wish for love and peace. Their music is inspired by music from all over the world. Their songs are catchy and yet each song is very unique and filled with love and emotion. Thomas Lauderdale is the founder and his interview shows his passion and why people love the band very much.  

My project: To Make a poster for an upcoming consert at Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles (July 19-21, 2013) 

My InspirationTheir website, posters and album covers show their style to be pretty illustrating. Pink Martini - image 1 - student project

These two posters belows are more photographic but I love the usage of color...

Below, these are album covers of other bands that are inspirations for my initial poster designs. They are well illustrated and contain lively color.

My Initial Poster Ideas: Not only try to go with the band's style, but also making an illustrative poster is challenging for me. So I choose to make an illustrative poster for this project.
