I really like when the designer says on here why they did what they did. I basically got the idea of this one, I thought, and it was nice to have it clarified.
I've seen these typeface a lot recently...what is it?
In case anyone really cares. I made this poster so I'll lay some phat, phat concept on y'all. Quasi is filled with oxymorons. They are a stripped down band (two people) but make a huge sound. They're music is happy pop but their lyrics are dark as hell. So I tried to get across this juxtaposition by creating a dark, minimalist poster made primarily of very heroic, strong deco type. It's intended to be elegant and showy and disturbing and introspective at the same time. The tear/rain drop is thrown is to organize the poster a bit and to allude to "It's Raining" and all those depressing lyrics in their music.
it's even better in real life. And now that i know the band a bit better i have something else to say. The concept is dead on. if i understand it it's a reference to the song 'raining'. and i have to say if the concept is that simple - it's a good poster.
QUASI is the greatest indie band in existence, hands down. Oh...in my opinion.
I dont know if Id say this poster really captures QUASI for me...but it is interesting. I like the tear-drop. I guess it is a bit 'QUASI'. after all.
