For this assignment we were asked to create a gig poster for an artist or band of our choice using the Victorian art style as inspiration. I chose Coldplay because of my love of the band, as well as my fascination with their intricate album that has it’s own unique visual style. My approach at first was to try to fit Coldplay’s tone into the Victorian style, but I quickly realized that to be inspired by something isn’t to replicate it, it’s to reference it and bring it into your own style. As I continued, I added clean illustrations, and hand lettering to give the piece a human feel. The simple colour palette and minimal amount of copy allow for a more illustration focused piece, giving each element a voice.
Coldplay Type: Hand-drawn
