Gig posters (opens in new tab) are an arena in which graphic designers can really indulge their passion for both art and music. So, it's always a delight to see music festivals and designers coming together to produce something incredibly special; that's exactly what Green Man (opens in new tab) and the UK Poster Association (opens in new tab) have done here.

"The festival asked us to create a series of limited edition prints for some of the acts playing at the festival," explains designer Luke Drozd (opens in new tab). "Eight acts were chosen in total, and they show the diversity of acts that are playing the festival as well as the diversity of talent exhibiting at the UKPA stall. Each poster was created as a limited edition A2 screen print."

The poster series includes works from Drozd as well as Graham Pilling / Army of Cats (opens in new tab), WeThreeClub (opens in new tab), Tommy Davidson (opens in new tab) and Telegramme (opens in new tab). Featuring a huge array of styles, each designer has added their own flair that still manages to fit in with the aesthetics of the festival itself. Couldn't make it to the festival?
