These are the two poster designs for an EPMD show we helped put together. The legendary group has a lot of brand equity with their existing logo and name so we just wanted to emphasize that and let the logo function as it should, to draw in loyal EPMD fans. We used a split-fountain, hand pulled screen printing technique to print a super limited run of only 12 of each design. The printing technique makes each poster a one of a kind.
