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

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

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!
