Show Poster of The Week - Brutal Juice Vinyl Release Party at Lola's / by Prewitt Scott-Jackson

Once a week FWN features a show poster from the Fort.

This week's featured show poster gave me a small case of the chills (in a good way). The bloody font + demon-eyed blind dude combination set amongst a smattering of illuminati-like geometry proved too much for me to ignore. 

The poster promotes Brutal Juice’s vinyl release show at Lola’s this Saturday, Feb. 11th. Do For It Records bands The Spectacle and Mountain of Smoke round out the night’s lineup.  

Doors open at 8PM, event details here.

Speaking of Do For It, James, the man behind the Do For It brand, produced this poster thru DFI's sister company Do For It Design. 

The triangle/circle imagery is commonly linked to the All-Seeing Eye and that's where I see a beautiful twist of irony with James' image: the man depicted within the triangle appears to be blind.

I cannot make out exactly which shapes are being drawn in the background image, but the graph paper certainly stands out and that's something I associate with sacred geometry, et al. More spooky chills down my spine!! 

The poster's aesthetic nailed the theme of the event, aligning perfectly with the bands on Saturday night's bill. One of the main tenets any good show poster designer lives by is matching the poster's aesthetic to the show's overall aesthetic. In this regard, James impressively excelled.  

The colors pop as does the imagery and when it's pulled all together we have a show poster that stood out to me this week.

S/o to James on the design and cheers to the Brutal Juice gang on the vinyl release!
