is a punk band from New Jersey known for their socially conscious attitude and thematically driven albums. In collaboration with Spencer Joynt
, I designed the custom typography and assisted with the production of a small edition of posters for one of their shows.
Inspired by the lyrical themes of depression established on their album The Most Lamentable Tragedy, the poster features a lone astronaut falling towards the sun; it’s an interpretation of the dream sequences experienced by the hero throughout the album’s journey.
Custom typography was created to compliment the visual themes of space on the poster. The letterforms’ harsh angular edges and geometric structures are evocative of typography commonly seen in science-fiction films; they are remnants of the doomed astronaut’s absent vessel.
A limited edition of 15, the posters utilize four colors and glow faintly in the dark. They were screenprinted on matte black paper from French Paper Co. with Speedball inks.
