|Poster for memorial benefit concert
Steve Block was a beloved friend to musicians in the Bay Area, and following his passing, they wanted to honor him with a concert. The evening was also planned to benefit the Sweet Relief Foundation — created to financially assist career musicians that are struggling with medical issues and bills.
Many professional musicians and friends gathered to pay musical tribute to Steve, and Minkin Design volunteered to design a poster for the event.Bob’s endearing photo of Steve is the central focus of the poster, which evokes the San Francisco Summer of Love with its purple color theme and subtle paisley patterned background.
The Fillmore size posters were printed for display around the Bay Area and put up for sale at the concert as collectible poster art. We also created a half size, electronic PDF version that people could download, print out and post anywhere.
The concert was practically a sellout, and was a successful, memorable and rousing evening for fans, friends and performers alike.
