Hey hey! Welcome to the letter D of our gigposter extravaganza! I’ve waded my way through some moderately angry posters, sprinkled with a bit of nudity and topped with some really bad posters to bring you these lovelies. I have discovered two things during the course of my research: 1) I don’t like photos in gigposters (and by photos I mean photographic images… something about them always looks super cheesy, even if they’re being “ironic” or something) and 2.) if your design name is something naughty I will hate your work 100% of the time (it probably takes a certain personality to even think about marketing themselves under a naughty name and the design that comes out of that same brain is equally terrible). Yuck.
Anywho, moving on to better, prettier things… here’s this week’s installment! Enjoy…
With a name like Ricardo Delrancho, how can you not be awesome!? I like where he’s going in all of these… his color palette is great, the images are great… oh man, I like him.
I like his style. It reminds me of the Ticking by Renee French. He only has a few posters and I hope he keeps making more.
I love what’s going on in these posters! But this is another case where I definitely don’t want to be hanging around in the same brain that these came out of. This is such a great little horse dude… how can you not love it?
Is doing some sort of cut paper-esque thing and I dig it. The images he’s choosing and the way he’s cramming some very cool detail. Definitely worth looking at and YES that does mean you! Go lookie look!
I really love this poster and I like where his style is going but I feel like most of his work is all the same. Which is good separately, but if you see it all together like you do on Gig it gets a little redundant. Ohhh how I do like this one!

I like this particular poster a lot, and I like about a teaspoonful of their style, but I got bored going very far back into their gallery on Gig. They’re channeling some sort of Australian theme… or something…. and it’s great, it works on the first page. Stay there and you won’t be missing much.
Has some nice things going on… but I think this is one of those times where they’re just starting to develop whatever their voice is. You can see the same thing happening in the first two pages of any of these artists’ pages on Gig, I’m going to be expecting some good things from Dog & Pony if they keep making things.
Is WACKY TACKY, in an awesome “Things are getting weird, so lemme bust this out for a sec” kind of way. I don’t want to be in whoever’s head this stuff is pouring out of, but I’m really charmed by the end product.
I love their Conor Oberst poster. LOVE it LOVE it LOVE it! They do some nice work, check it out.
Has a huge number of really, really nice posters. Someone has put a lot of love into all of these to make them look so beautiful, and really in the end, they’re just gig posters. However, I think that it’s designers like Delicious that have elevated gigposters above the level of mere advertisements. I wanna hang these suckers on my walls and stare at them all darn day.
He has a really nice color palette and layering technique that makes everything look like you’re looking at a well done 3-D poster… without the glasses.
