If music is art, these concert posters are just an extension of the artist. As we showed you in 25 Magnificent Modern Day Movie Illustrations, art is all around us. What it's the designer's job to do, is to create an illustration that not only captures our attention, but more importantly, delivers a message. The creator is as much an artist as much as he or she is a designer.
What the designers of these concert poster have done so well is keep it simple. Sometimes it's a clever play on words and other times it's a familiar symbol. And whether we know the band or not, we can appreciate the thought behind it. The subtle stories shine through.
