|I created tags and posters for purplE k'niF's Midwest mini-tour in April, 2007. The band will be handing out canvas tags bearing more than 200 different surfboard designs. Each tag comes with a piece of soft wire enabling it to be attached to clothes, personal accessories, or objects in the environment. Each canvas surfboard comes wrapped in a folded sheet of paper--blank on the outside; on the inside the names & instrumentation of the band members are displayed and surrounded by the symbols of various surf companies and organizations. The band will also be putting up two different types of promotional posters in each venue: one promotes the canvas surfboard giveaway and another one is a larger version of the printed wrapper.|
