I just caught sight of this excellent poster and knew right away that it was our flier of the week. In the course of advertising the sure-to-be excellent appearance of Dormir, Gloam, Portamento, St. Elias and Woodsman at the Meadowlark this Saturday, April 25, this flier makes a powerful statement for the power of design. Every element here works in concert, from the color choices to the typography to the eye-catching, abstract quasi-mosaic image. It's simultaneously aesthetically pleasing, spare and powerful. In short, it's a triumph of design. Me likey.
