I just finished the last poster for the spring performing arts season for my client Arts at The Park, a wonderful organization that promotes and hosts a variety of musicians and musical groups throughout the spring and fall seasons.

Contemporaneous Ensemble poster design for Arts at The Park, NYC

The performing ensemble, Contemporaneous, is a little different genre-wise than what I’m used to working with for AATP who typically work with music groups that are traditionally classical or gospel. I had so much fun playing with a bright color palette and using bold shapes to help convey a different and more modern story than what passersby of the Park Avenue at E85th Street venue might be used to seeing here. The concert takes place on May 10, 2014. So if you’re in town, and want to enjoy new works from this contemporary classical ensemble, order tickets on

This is an alternate version of the poster I presented to the client. I really like this layout because it makes good use of the ensemble’s ‘cut-off’ logo in a bold and highly-visible way. And the overall feel is very clean and straightforward. But agree that the approved version is much more eye-catching. And that’s what you ultimately want when trying to grab people’s attention on a busy city sidewalk.

Enjoy the concert if you go! And thank you to my clients, Paul and Melissa for another wonderful season…love working with you guys!
