Dylan Griff Part 1: ‘Once Twice Melody’ Event Posters

Hello! My name is Dylan Griff. I am a graphic designer and printmaker based in the Spokane area. With goals of working as a graphic designer within a larger team and continuing to experiment with my printmaking practice, I am finding my place within the world of art and design. When I am not working on new designs, I enjoy traveling with friends, collecting and listening to new vinyl (I always appreciate album suggestions!), and a good game of cribbage over coffee.

This is an unofficial series of event poster designs for the band, Beach House. The posters take on gold and silver color schemes that mimic the release of the two vinyl album cover editions for the new album ‘Once Twice Melody’. Each poster is connected to one another by visual likeness, compositional elements, color, and typography.

When working on design projects, there is a high likelihood that I will be listening to a Beach House record… I tuned into all of that listening to really try and create work that could be used as promotional material for the musical duo. The result was repeated circles incorporated in both pattern elements and in the stylized typeface. The slightly different colored circles that appear on each design was oriented to visually represent the album title ‘Once Twice Melody’ though their positioning as a single circle, a pair of circles, followed by a simplified representation of a melody arrangement as it would be seen on sheet music.

All seven posters interact when displayed together, meanwhile they can also communicate effectively alone in both print and digital media.
