- Adobe Photoshop (updated in Illustrator, 2013)
The project was to create a 1960’s style poster announcing a modern band having a show. I chose Imogen Heap, a UK artist, because I enjoy how she combines vocals, synth, string, piano, and odd-sound recording (she once recorded the ‘whooshing’ sound of the bellows in an old organ for one of her songs) into her music. The colors I chose as a base were brown and rose, with tints and shades, because they are soft and subtle but speak to the 60’s style. The image of Imogen herself I illustrated from a photograph which I came across on her website and found to be perfect because the feathers, flower, and wild hair mixed well with the smooth colors. The coincidental moment was when I read that she was preforming on the 10th of November that year (2009), just weeks after I designed the poster, though she was playing at the Fillmore in San Francisco rather than the Metro in New York.
