Damien Tran's collaged gig posters are simple yet distinctive

6 August 2015

Berlin-based Damien Tran’s abstract design style has always caught our eye and we featured some of his posters earlier this year, but it’s this set of simple gig posters we’re showing off this time. With their collaged, DIY aesthetic and less focus on full colour images and bright swathes of ink. Instead Damien has adopted a neutral palette using only fragmented photographs and odd cut out shapes, with plain, handwritten type. The designer’s style is distinctive and an unusual take on the typical gig poster. But while they’re simple, it’s the unpredictability of the posters that I like most, there’s no formula or order to them meaning each one is individual.
