CONCERT FLYER PROMOTING AN ACTUAL CONCERT

  • Adobe Photoshop  - Illustrator
  • SVEC Commercial Art students and the class are friends of the band DEVO. We Skypechatted with DEVO founder
    Gerald Casale last year. New Wave music legends Blondie & DEVO recently came to Pinellas Park, FL.. Students were
    to create a concert flyer promoting the show. They had five days to create and finish these (Roughly 7 class hours)
  • Mark Mothersbaugh of DEVO took a look at some of the flyers after the show and commented that one in particular was
    "the poster they should have used on their tour with Blondie."  Way to go Jesse Pierson!
