BB King tribute gig poster
B.B. King Tribute Gig Poster
LABEL DESIGN, LETTERING, OLD TYPEFACES
– Gig posters are damn fun. If I could make a living designing gig posters, I would!
Unfortunately, this isn’t the case with me. Maybe I’m slow, maybe people don’t want to pay what it costs to produce an awesome piece every time. Either way, a gig poster design has become a rarity for me.
When the news broke of B.B’s death, storm suggested The Goods do a tribute gig. I think about 50% of our set were already BB tunes, the rest were inevitably influenced by him. We were all game. I figured the circumstances were appropriate for a poster that was carefully crafted and cared for. Like BB’s playing.
Here is us playing “The Thrill is Gone”.
