About this title:

Synopsis: Design meets music in a one-of-a-kind tour!

Powerhouse Factories takes you beyond album covers to teach you all about the art that drives today's biggest shows and festivals. Show Posters offers a visual timeline of the big players in the music industry, from The Black Keys and Passion Pit to Phantogram and Real Estate, as well as the posters that launched their shows--and the designers' careers.

Show Posters features step-by-step instructions to guide you through screen printing, hand lettering, and yes, even Xeroxing your way to recreating iconic, kickass posters. The high-energy rock-and-roll artists of Powerhouse Factories will coach you on how to hook up with bands, managers, and promoters, and create an original, limited poster for one of their shows.

About the Author: Powerhouse Factories is a rock poster shop and design studio. Since 2004, their energy and success has been rooted in the hands-on, DIY process of rock poster design and printing, and a rich understanding of the culture. They spot niche trends that inform and enable the creation of powerful rock poster designs that have been featured in publications and galleries all over the world. For almost a decade, they have translated the same spirit of collaboration and artistic drive into projects for both music industry clients through their rock poster shop and Fortune 500 companies through their brand-building agency.
