Beta Radio approached me to design a memorable poster celebrating the release of the bands first full-length album. It had been a ten-year process for the record to be made, so the stipulations were that the poster “could not suck,” and it “has to have metallic ink.” After talking with the band, I decided to move ahead with a record-centered concept. Using records instead of balloons lent itself perfectly for the idea of “release.” The seven balloons represent the album name, Seven Sisters, and the escaped balloon foreshadows the album’s release.
Seeing that Brent Holloman loves his vinyl records, it was fitting to use records instead of balloons in this concept. The album is entitled Seven Sister, and there is one record for each sister. What always happens when you have a balloon? Inevitably they make there way out into the world whether you mean to let go or grabbed by the wind.
It is an honor to have this poster included in the book by Tim Booth. Be sure to stop by and see all the other talented artist showcased in this book, “The Wall: Modern Day Music Posters."
