This is the flyer I did for 412 Approved’s Show Me Love 2. (Last year I had the chance to do the design for Show Me Love… found here.) I wanted to model this year’s design similar to last year’s. Of course I wanted to work with the fabulous Laurel Munshower again. We decided to do a witch concocting some love spells and potions and go with a deep red, black, and purple theme. I think it turned out pretty well.
Headlining the event are Vize and Mayhem. Supporting djs are Peterlee, Tika, Ryan Matthew, Ben Matrix, Sean Kramer, Bob Teagarden, Xero, RM, and Funkreformer.
The event takes place on October 16, 2010 at the Braddock Elk’s Lodge, Braddock, PA.
So, I love this design. I really really love it. Haha! I rarely create everything for a design, and this time I did. I created the blacklight-esque illustration on the front and then picked up the coloration throughout the entire piece. I definitely struggled with it, as I’m no illustrator. Originally I had tried to commission an art student to assist me with this design. We got through the initial brainstorming process and then she asked what the event was. I told her flat out… it’s a rave. I then explained to her that doing design for raves has been my entire freelance business for the past 3 years and that is has given me a lot of great opportunities as far as getting my work out there, doing what I love, making $$$ (hehe), etc. Apparently exposure and money weren’t enough for her! Crazy, huh? If I have learned NOTHING ELSE since I have graduated college it has been this… If you are going to picky in the world of Graphic Design… you’re going to be jobless. /rant. Anyhow, when she left me high and dry was when I figured I’d be fine on my own. 🙂
So this is a very trance/hardcore heavy party, which is awesome. I haven’t been to a trance party in a while (I’ll pass on the hardcore though, thank you very much). Tom Colontonio headlines this event, as well as No Left Turn and Ian K. Supporting djs are Tika (one of my very close friends), Doverspike, Eric Bliss, Omen, Eryn Evans, Joltz, Sean 2:16, Kevin King, Dougie & Sam, Fatt Kid, Skootz, Agent Smith & Zone, and Justin Beavers (not to be confused with Justin Bieber… however that would be quite awesome if Justin Bieber showed up at a rave.)
Anyhow, you can read more about the event at Lolli.org. It will definitely be a partAY you don’t want to miss! 🙂
