I was commisoned by Ronan Harris himself to create a series of posters for the VNV Nation TRANSNATIONAL world Tour 2013-2014 . it was a great collaborative process with frontman´s group Ronan Harris  he gave me a lot of feedback and direction to what the album and the tour represent, but he also give me a lot of freedom to incorporate as many of my own ideas as possible.
 
The main idea of TRANSNATIONAL  is to trascend countries reaching as many people as possible all united by music.
Some of the inspiration came from  Cassandre´s posters, this art deco pieces were a great source of ideas and style.
 
I came up with a very simple scribble to represent the basic composition of the poster.
Then I came up with a more complete sketch using graphite and charcoal pencil. once approved I moved into some previsualizations with text.
Here are some previews with text.
After that I worked the design on the computer, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator helped me to create the textures and effect desired.
Finally after finishing the last details of the artwork we moved into typography, It was very tricky because you have to give the proper herarchy to the text and have an eyecatching Font but keep it legible, also too many font types may distract the viewer from the  the main artwork.
Finished Artwork!
I hope I can continue working with this poster because it is great for my style, working for such an important client also raises your game, and it´s a challenge I very much enjoyed.

A limited edition of the poster will be sold exclusively at the TRANSNATIONAL Tour concerts.
