So the Postermart is upon us! Just got everything back from the printers and it’s all looking sweeeeet!
Big thanks to everyone who has submitted posters - including: Clwb Ifor Bach (for a shedload of stuff), Ben Swain, Oliver Hurley, Meilir Tomos, Richard Chitty, Kirsten McTernan, Carl Rylatt, Harri Davidson, Peter Dyer, Dan Barnett, Nadine Ballantyne and Casey Raymond. Sorry if I’ve forgotten anyone!
Special thanks to Catrin and Chill at Clwb Ifor Bach and Carl Rylatt for printing their stuff for me.
There’ll be prints on sale from Casey Raymond and myself (Croatoan) - and if anyone else wants to bring their prints / promo material / business cards along for the stall they’re more than welcome.
7.30pm at Buffalo Lounge, Woodville Road. Hopefully see you there for some viewing, mingling, drinking and a local bands set from DJ Jazzy Graf* of Spillers Records / Gindrinker fame.
*I made the jazzy bit up. There will be no jazz that I know of.
We at hack/flash started Cardiff Gig Posters a short while ago to showcase Cardiff’s live music scene is visual form. We’ve already had a fantastic response on our blog - now we’re happy to announce the first POSTERMART!
On Wednesday 6th of April we’re going to move into the real world and take over Buffalo Lounge on Woodville Road. We’ll be displaying brilliant posters old and new, we’ll have stalls for designers to sell prints direct, and we’ll have some ace DJs playing music to peruse art to. We might even have some awesome, only-available-on-the-night Postermart one-offs!
So we’re looking for submissions for display, and asking any designers who’d like to be part of Postermart to get in touch. Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
Big thanks to Liz for having us; this is a great opportunity to showcase the great design goes hand in hand with Cardiff’s live music scene, promote the humble gig poster and all meet up and say hello. Hopefully we can make it a regular thing!
