Poster of the Week: Calhoun, The Orbans at The O's at the Kessler Theater Tomorrow Night

Sometimes color can overwhelm. Other times, it's just so pretty.

In this case, it's the latter -- pretty much every color on the palate is used in this image promoting tomorrow night's excellent triple-bill at the Kessler Theater -- but they're all used tastefully, and sparingly, in this washed-out image of a separated bird of some sorts. Not quite sure what's going with that bird, or why its innards feature every color of the rainbow, but it adds to the overall visual intrigue of the poster, that's for sure.

So, too, does the way the colors of the image are transposed across the text at the bottom of the poster in the band name listings and also separately in the venue info text.

Just a visually pleasing entity overall.

Think your poster is better? Want to see one of your designs get honored next week? Then go ahead and drop us an email with an image promoting an upcoming show right here. Oh, and be sure to do so at least a week in advance. Thanks!

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
