Social Contract’s Poster Picks // August

Social Contract splash logo

 

Welcome to our first post in the new format. Instead of every week, from now on we will have a monthly roundup of posters gathered from the events that blew you away. Feel free to mail us your posters to get them featured here.

 

Today’s posters are by Simon Berndt, PJ Stevens, Justus Kotze, Ian Jepson, Graeme ArendseBrentBlack Studios and Justin Poulter.

 

The explosion of the Facebook event page header has chiselled away from the original poster format. We hope these posters will inspire and revive the local gig poster scene and kick it up a notch. On the international front we see screen printed gig posters sold as merchandise at shows, showing off the beautiful artwork that a designer has taken the time and effort to create. I believe that an A3 gig poster is the only way and designing for 784 x 295 pixels is a waste of a designer’s time (although reworking a poster to fit the pixels is a necessary step in getting people to a gig).

 

Let us know what you think.
