The 8.5×11-inch playbill template for The Steam Shovel.


Do you remember that time when the grunge/graffiti look was all the rage? I hope I’m not the only one.

My plan for this template is to use it for a variety of posters advertising fake bands playing at the fake Steam Shovel bar. The whole project is an exercise in advertising and, since I will be using different bands, an opportunity to try different styles for their “look.”

A completed poster will be black on 1-color paper because I want to emulate the Xerox cost-saving measures that a band looking to reproduce cheap advertising would use. The Steam Shovel’s portion of the poster will be black without any gradients but the featured band can be freer to experiment.
