My first screen-printed poster

Bird Big Band poster - silkscreened

As someone who does a lot of design for the web and digital printing, it was a real treat when long-time client Bird School of Music announced they wanted to do a screen-printed poster to advertise their big band project.

Bird wanted something inspired by the classic posters by Hatch Show Print of Nashville, so I got to use all the distressed, hand-printed looking type I love so much.

The awesome Matt from Monolith Press patiently talked me through the finer points of preparing a file for screen-printing and then did a terrific job on the printing itself. I think the end result turned out really cool.
