If any of you out there are awake and recovering from tryptophan-fueled post-pig-out regrets or the early-morning Black Friday brouhaha, take a look at this week's serene selection. Brought to you by Kennon Talley of This Old House (and Western Giants), this poster might be the very necessary calm after the storm. By taking a look at the other posters Talley has designed, calming yet resolute visuals reveal themselves to be the running theme of the designer.

This week's poster presents itself within those placid properties, without the platitude. With a nice light blue monochromatic palette and crisp typography, all the important information resides the forefront against a clean, crafty abstraction. For a design with so many sharp lines, angles, and patterns, it's still somehow quiet, making this poster interestingly unusual.

And as usual, continue sending your poster submissions to gigposters@dallasobserver.com. Include the artist/designer's name and info for proper credit at least a week in advance. (And remember, we love printed pieces too, which can be sent here.)

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.
