Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble.

In Typography class, one of our first major projects was to design an event poster for a lecture, play, musician, whatever we wanted. The only real rule was that the focus of the poster had to be type (imagery was allowed but couldn't be the focal point). I was listening to a lot of The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble and The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation, their improv alter-ego (serious thanks to both Zoetica Ebb and Ales Kot for bringing them to my attention). Both band names have plenty of lovely letter forms for me to draw and stack (two Zs!), so I chose one and went with it.

The poster, printed at 18x24, looks nice. It went through infinite revisions to get to something I felt confident in; the exhaustive, mildly annoying process was partially documented on Twitter. Anyway. I'll shut up now. Have some music.

Oh. Yeah. Thesis things. Those are, uh, on the way.
