Poster of the Week: New Science Projects' CD Release Show on Saturday at Rubber Gloves

Denton's Dale Jones, when performing under his New Science Projects moniker, is a somewhat frightening and confusing character, one that dons face paint and refuses to play on stages and runs right up to his audience members only to scream into their face.

So it's pretty fitting, then, that the poster advertising his new album is also frightening and confusing.

Featuring some sort of schematic diagram for what appears to be a hand hook of sorts, this poster doesn't really much sense. Last time I saw him, Jones had both his hands. And I'm pretty sure someone would've told me if he was involved in a freak accident.

Nonetheless, the poster does its job quite well -- the images here are startling enough to grab one's attention, that's for sure. And the used paper background adds a certain mystique to it as well.

Beyond that, it's pretty straightforward. The color scheme is simple. The text is uniform. And it's informative -- beyond showing off the surprisingly complicated set up for a hook hand, all the pertinent show details are included.

Also, it's not a design I've seen before. Major points there.

Think your poster is better? Want to see one of your designs get honored next week? Drop us an e-mail with an image promoting an upcoming show right here. Oh, and, when possible, be sure to do so at least a week in advance of the show. Thanks!
