The Houses' approach to music may be "more is more" (aren't there like forty of them in the band?) but their approach to design is definitely "less is more" and it results in some striking, beautiful design work such as this flier for the group's Summer EP release at the Meadowlark this Friday, August 7. Juxtaposing the simple, abstract art from the EP with a new, slightly loopy approach for the band's logo and some nice, clean typography for the supporting acts, this flier is a nice example of simple elements in perfect balance adding up to great effect. Its net impact is greater than the sum of its parts and that earns it a nod this week. As always, click on the image for a larger version.
