Syracuse Poster Project Banner

I moved to Syracuse about a year and a half ago, and my lifestyle changed a little. I got married right before I moved, and we’re both in school. So we haven’t had time to get out much. But I’ve always been a fan of music, and going to local acts, open mics, and seeing music in smaller venues. I felt I probably shared that with the poet.

I also liked that this poem was a little timeless. It could be from the 1930s as well as contemporary. So I looked at poster design from the 20s and 30s, and I played off the German Expressionists, through the use of lighting, overlapping shapes, and the illusion of transparency. As a printer, I was thinking, “How could I make this very digital and very colorful poster, and make it appear to be printed in three or four colors?”

Carbonated jazz,
sloe gin soul with open mic,
two drink minimum.
