Into the void.

Titus Andronicus is a punk band from New Jersey known for their socially conscious attitude and thematically driven albums. In collaboration with Spencer Joynt, I designed the custom typography and assisted with the production of a limited edition of posters for one of their shows.

Inspired by the lyrical themes of depression established on their album The Most Lamentable Tragedy, the poster features a lone astronaut falling helplessly towards the sun; it’s an interpretation of the dream sequences experienced by the hero throughout the album’s journey.
Custom typography was created to compliment the visual themes of space on the poster. Built upon a modular system, the letterforms’ harsh angular edges and geometric style are evocative of typography commonly seen in science-fiction films; they are remnants of the doomed astronaut’s absent vessel.

A limited edition of 15, the posters utilize four colors and glow faintly in the dark. They were screenprinted on matte black paper from French Paper Co. with Speedball inks.
