Tomorrow night may be Friday the 13th, but there's nothing altogether frightening about this design from Dallas-based graphic designer Antonio F. Mondragon-Becker aimed at promoting a Kessler Theater bill featuring Zoe Keating and Tiger Darrow.
Instead, it's just a crisp, two-color offering that gets right to the heart of the show's offering, thanks to a clever main image that depicts a head unraveling into a string that takes the form of a cello toward the bottom of the design. That much makes sense: Keating's a cellist -- it's her bit. And, smartly, that's what this poster highlights, while also indicating the cerebral nature of her offerings.
Just a well-thought-out and well-executed design. Nice stuff.
Think your poster is better? Want to see one of your designs get honored next week? Drop us an email 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!
