dave matthews band summer tour poster concepts

This direction would be a cool, classy, framed coin collection. Each date would have a 'coin' associated with it featuring a simple little iconic illustration of something associated with that area. These could be printed with metallic inks to make it really pop. The entire thing would be encased in an ornate frame to complete the look.

The idea here is to display all of the dates on a bookshelf / curio cabinet. The spines of the books would have all of the show dates on them in place of the titles. The rest of the shelf could be full of a variety of visually interesting objects - maybe certain items that reference DMB songs. This direction would be executed in a bold, geometric style similar to the gumball print. Lots of opportunity here to add little hidden details and things like that.

This poster would be a DMB version of the classic ant farm you had as a kid. The tour dates could go on the ants, maybe incorporate some little sticks & leaves for them to be carrying.

This one would be a cool nontraditional format - a tall skinny print depicting a hot air balloon rally. Each balloon would have a tour date on it and they would all have a variety of patterns & colors on them.

We sent this sketch last year as well, but still think its a cool concept and could translate really well to a tour poster. Kind of a vintage scouting theme (think moonrise kingdom by wes anderson). Each date gets its own faux-embroidered merit badge.
