Radical graphics with rad concert venue The Music Gallery

The Music Gallery is a Toronto-based centre dedicated to “promoting and presenting innovation and experimentation in all forms of music, and for encouraging cross-pollination between genres, disciplines and audiences.”

I have designed several of The Music Gallery’s posters, program guides and social media images through my work with And Also Too. Throughout the years, their request in terms of visual direction has remained consistent: to keep things as weird as possible.

As a designer, this is a treat—an open invitation to push against white aesthetics. Flashy textures, liquefied objects, colorful glitches, and elastic formations are some of the visuals used to represent the unconventional nature of a Music Gallery show.
