We like a creative solution that is a little obtuse here at It’s Nice That and so this identity work from Dublin-based designer Dolce Merda truly tickled our fancy. Not Saying Boo organise secret gigs and late night parties across the Irish capital, but the designer decided to eschew the visual treatments often associated with exclusive, hidden or little-known cultural events when it came to creating the gig posters.
“I loved the irony of everything (including the logo) suggesting the secretiveness of the gigs but for the posters to scream as loud as the gigs themselves with huge type cramping the full page with the name of that show’s headline act,” Dolce Merda aka Gianni Clifford says. The resulting posters are anything but subtle, but they look great and show off Gianni’s design capabilities neatly.
