Doing design work for your friends is a precarious process. Because of the intimacy involved, there’s usually a little bit of fancy footwork required; and some of the time, it can turn into a rather arduous commitment. On the other hand, when the collaboration clicks and you’re working with the right kind of people, some really magical things can happen. Case in point: gold paper.

Chris Righter and Seth Goodwin are two local musicians in Springfield, MO, who also book tons of touring bands. They are two awesome guys who also support my art by constantly asking me to do posters for their shows. They let me do what I want, and encourage me to push as many boundaries as possible with my illustration and design, as well as the size and detail of my project.

For this poster for the touring act Twin Killers, I chose to print on over sized gold poster board to really give the project a flashy pop that would grab people’s attention.

The idea with all the posters I do for this particular client is to really stand out from the other bland posters that litter the walls of our town. Concept and traditional applications are ignored for artistic choices, such as the zigzagging type on this poster, which hopefully incites curiosity in Springfield natives to come and see the shows that these posters are advertising.

Printing these myself was a real hassle. I like the opportunity to play in ink, but the smooth surface of this coated gold poster really presented a challenge. Layers had to be printed in one go, or ink would easily smear and smudge, and the drying time was insane!
