For the past few weeks, we've been beating the same old drum, telling you over and over again that a great image is moot if the text sucks. Well, uh, nevermind.
Designed by the folks at Kentucky's Powerhouse Factory Design to promote this Sunday's Granada Theater performance by the Budos Band, this poster throws convention to the wind, replacing it with a badass image. I'm not really sure what it is, actually. But I can't stop looking at it. Mostly, again, because I don't really know what it is. That one dude from Hellboy? I really don't know.
I do know, however, that the type is real tough to read. But, whatever, I'm looking at this sucker for long enough where, eventually, all stumble upon the info I need. Far as I can tell, it's all in there--even DJ Sober gets a shoutout as the opening act.
So there you go.
Anyway, as an added bonus, this image is "flocked" onto the page it's printed on. What's that mean? Here you go:
Flocking is a process where short fibers of rayon or nylon material is embedded in an adhesive that has been screen printed on a garment. The funny thing is that while flocking lost popularity on garments, it is still widely used as a method of covering material with a lush feel (including items like carpets, the glove-box of your car, wallpaper, etc.). The fibers are embedded using an electrostatic process that drives the fibers vertically into the adhesive -- giving the image a smooth velvet look and feel.Just like the bathroom wallpaper at La Grange, y'all!
Think your work is better? Fine. Show it to us. Send us your POTW submissions right here, and, please, do so at least a week in advance of the show. Thanks!
