In June 2017, Vulfmon hit me up for some gig posters. Obviously, custom typefaces are more my jam, but it’s fun to get out of my wheelhouse every once in a while, especially for something with a nice printing budget. Gig posters are a tough assignment. Fully embodying the breadth of a band’s performance is a task too daunting for any one image, so I usually work a simple concept to death. Vulfpeck’s sound is largely shaped by Motown’s golden era, so my ideas centered around that for the most part. Obviously, there was going to be some Vulf Mono for supporting type, so that was another constant. Finally, Jack suggested metallic gold on black, which I was all about. Those three ideas helped lay the foundation for a few proposed directions.
