Crappy Hour

 

 

I designed these 8.5″x17″ posters for the Gladstone Hotel, where I am the Creative Director.

Crappy Hour is a new Tuesday night event with the tagline “Did you hate your boss? Was the subway delayed AGAIN on your morning commute? Join us at the Gladstone Hotel every Tuesday night for Crappy Hour — half priced apps and beer, cocktail and wine specials. We’ll provide the open mic, if you’ll provide us with a rant. Let it all out because hey, it’s not quite Humpday.”

Not So Soft – Poster

 

I designed these 8.5″ x 17″ posters for Kaleb Robertson over at the Crush Project.  I’m in love with this size of poster for street postering because they are scaled perfectly for Toronto’s hydro poles.
