DJ Ammo

Posted in Design, Illustration, Strike Three on March 9, 2010 by strikethreeuk

Just finished a cover for DJ Ammo’s new drum ‘n’ bass mix, available on Soundcloud, and for sale if you hit him up on Facebook. Tried to keep it simple and clean, the opposite of a typical dance music cover (although I fell into the cliche of employing the well overused A/E ligature from Avant Garde). Had some good feedback from it so far, what do you think? Some better resolution shots on my main site.

The Cinematic Orchestra Live at the Roundhouse

Managed to, ahem, ‘borrow’ this poster from the Cinematic Orchestra gig I went to the other week. Simple but nice.
