Sounds Like An Almost Bang'n Tour!

Here is the tour flyer i created for my old band Soundslikelazerfire! for the "Sounds Like An Almost Bang'n Tour" that we take part of every summer with two fantastic bands Sgt Wolfbanger and The Almost Super Heroes. The tour has become something of a tradition over the past 3 years as we all help to organise, promote and fund the entire thing ourselves. Some of you might be thinking "yeah that's just a walk in the park man, anyone can organise something like that" but trust me, it is far more difficult then it sounds (if any of you have ever been in a band you will understand what i am talking about) So i thought this year i would help out and go one step further by creating a flyer to help promote the events.
It was such a wonderful feeling turning up to the venues with my flyer pasted up on the walls while people were queuing outside, almost felt like we were all professionals. For about a week i felt like a right "hip, cool designer" kid ha ha.

To create this I used mainly vectors with elements of Photoshop CS3 added in later for a distorted effect. I pen tooled around a photograph of a gay biker guy with a rather awesome looking moustache then vectorised it in Illustrator and dived into 3 different coloured layers, that once were placed together created a very interesting effect. Overall it was a very quick process to design for and i was very happy with how it turned out, although the text might have been a bit hard to read for some people, but balls to it...... I liked it.
