It’s Derby Time, Ladies!
It’s that time of year again where I get asked to make an event poster for Tri-City Roller Derby. This is my second time making a poster for them and needless to say, it’s my new favourite project to do.
This time around, the poster is for their main event: the championship games. Killer Queens are playing Violet Uprising for 3rd place, while Venus Fly Tramps are up against Vicious Dishes for 1st and 2nd place.
I wanted the poster to have a rough, grungy feel while using clean and structured typography. Add some bad-ass, derby babes for the focal point and a dash of pink and we have ourselves a bitchin’ poster.
I used the same design and adapted it to create a Facebook cover ad as well.
Photography was supplied by Joe Mac. Check out his Facebook page for more Derby photos.
Good luck to all the ladies playing, and thanks for letting me create another piece for you!
