Print Club London : Initial brief


Design A gig poster for a band of your choice. Poster must be screen printed and must not include the name of the band or title of the track. 

This is a competition brief set by Print Club London. It is a chance to enter their annual blisters sound screen print exhibition. The theme of the exhibition is music and so the posters must all be designed to the theme of a certain music artist or to a specific song. The only catch is that no names of song or musician can be used on the poster it must remain anonymous.

We’re starting to prepare for our annual screen print poster show!
This year it’s Blisters: Sound Sessions.
We are now open for submissions and want to get the word out there to ANY illustrators/aspiring artists who want to take part.

Blisters: Sound Sessions
To fill you in, here are some details about our past shows and what we’re planning for 2014…
Following the success of the Blisters Blackout exhibition last year and the Secret Blisters and Blisters On My Fingers of previous years, Print Club London opens its doors on the 12th, 13th and 14th of September 2014 for its fifth annual screenprinted exhibition.

Blisters: SOUND SESSIONS – The Brief
1. Submit a poster in your own style inspired by your favourite band/song/musician/tour/gig.
2. The catch is, you cannot use the name of the band, song or musician! Use of other text is allowed, of course, but this should stand alone as an image/scene or typography.
3. Prepare artwork for a 500mm x 700mm print (B2 format).
4. Most importantly, your work must be COMPLETELY new and original for this project and never seen before! We will not accept any submissions that are displayed anywhere else, including your personal blog or portfolio.
See below for FAQs.

Our studios are open for successful submissions to print their own work, but if you aren’t printing this yourself do be aware that the more colours you choose the more expensive it is to produce.
There will be 40 exhibiting artists, each with a 40 edition and signed screenprints selling for £40 a pop!

The idea is that whether you are just out of college, up and coming or a well-known artist, everyone is on the same level platform and the prints speak for themselves.
Our aim is to take affordable art prints to a wider demographic, encouraging buyers to invest in original artwork
Artists who have taken part in our Blisters shows before include: Ben Eine, Jamie Reid, Mr Bingo, Stevie Gee, Pure Evil, Peter Stitson, Luke Insect, Anthony Burrill, Cept, Serge Seidlitz, Jon Burgerman, Kate Moross, Ryan Todd, James Joyce, Luke Whittaker, Atelier Mille Deux, Clifford Richards, Run Don’t Walk, Heiko, Gary Taxali, Mike Perry, RYCA and many, many more!
Submissions must be sent as a low-res .jpeg file to and the official deadline is 31st March 2014.
