Series of posters commissioned by Khruangbin for a show the band played in Houston, also known as “Space City” for becoming home to NASA’s Manned Spacecraft Center in 1967.

The brief was very straightforward: The three members of the band had to be represented somehow in the poster, featuring elements allusive to NASA and New Year’s Eve*. Originally, the task was to make just one poster. However, after seeing the initial round of sketches they suggested turning them into a series, as if they were a sequence of events – “ignition, sequence, start”.

The typefaces in the design, Nasalization and Bernstein Serial Heavy, were chosen using as a reference the two most recognizable NASA logos, while keeping a consistent color palette and the disco ball and circles as recurring elements.

Limited edition three-color screen-printed on holographic paper by Native Screen Print Co
Hand-signed and numbered copies are available for purchase.

* Originally, the show was supposed to happen on December 21st 2021, featuring Adan Kennedy and Kornbread as opening acts, but due to a surge in COVID cases, it had to be moved to May 2022 with Quantic as the guest artist.
