Poster design contest

This poster was made for a Poster Design Contest on Creative Allies.

The purpose of the contest was to create a poster for the concert of the American band “Phantogram“.

The band define their music as electro rock, dream pop, electronica and trip hop. Their music has lots of rhythms, swirling guitars, spacey keyboards, echoes, airy vocals. So they say on Wikipedia.

As I listened to their music it seemed to me as a kind of dreamy and trippy electronic rock music.

Then I started thinking about the name “Phantogram”.
I found that is was inspired by an optical illusion called a phantogram, in which two-dimensional images appear to be three-dimensional.

That’s a nice way to start a graphic poster!

I mixed everything up, the geometrical style of illusions and the dreamy wavy style of coloured smoke. I matched the font type with the background style and it became one nice visual.

Unfortunately I didn’t won but had some nice comments and enjoyed the creation.
