In any guide to modern poster design (opens in new tab), one thing's for sure - it has to be eye-catching, informative and above all, creative. Combining a number of design elements is always a wonderful and unique approach and this latest design for the Dublin music festival uses typography, colour and character design to their fullest potential.
"This Dublin poster project was a fairly quick turnaround," Irish designer Steve Simpson (opens in new tab) explains. "Brief came in on the Friday morning, intial rough followed by cleaned-up sketch by Friday evening and sent to client, approved Monday morning. Artwork fininished and sent to client Wednesday afternoon, minor tweaks and signed-off Thursday afternoon."
Below, you can see some of the sketches Simpson worked on before diving into the beautiful creation. We love the mix of colours and the wonderful take on some of the biggest names in music.
