Collective Art Project (CAP) Deck: Gig Posters Playing Cards #1

Gigposters_logoGigposters.com is a Canadian site dedicated to the artists, designers and musicians who create gig posters to advertise shows and events. It is some kind of international community for these categories of people. They are concentrated on music events. You can submit your works and take part in the community for free. Gig Posters accepts gig poster, flyers and handbills. They do not accept promotional, non-music related posters or posters for shows that did not happen. There must be at least one musical performer listed on the poster. (a band or DJ).

From time to time Gig Posters selects some artworks and produces a deck of playing cards. There are three decks at this moment. And this article is dedicated to the first one which was printed in 2005 (two other decks will be described on pages of this blog as well) – Gig Poster Playing Card Deck 1.

The deck: 52 playing cards with different artworks + 2 Jokers with different artworks + ad card. Bridge size. Playing cards are printed (by TMPC) on cardboard and have a glossy finish. The tuck case (designed by The Decoder Ring Design Concern) has also a glossy finish.

Dave Matthews Band Official Playing Cards

Dave Matthews Band, abbreviated DMB, is an American rock band that was formed in Charlottesville, Virginia, U.S. in 1991. The group’s lyrical themes focus on topics ranging from God, love, sex, the enjoyment and appreciation of life, to ending racism, and political and anti-war statements. The founding members were singer-songwriter and guitarist Dave Matthews, bassist Stefan Lessard, drummer/backing vocalist Carter Beauford and saxophonist LeRoi Moore.

The band is known for their annual summer-long tours of the US and Europe, featuring lengthy improvisational renditions of their songs, accompanied by an elaborate video and lighting show. This portion of the tour has become a stamp of DMB.

The band has won one Grammy Award, and was awarded the NAACP Chairman’s Award.

Methane Studios has been commissioned to design posters and create special projects for the Dave Matthews Band since 2005. Some of those posters were used for decks of playing cards: 2009 edition, 2010 edition and 2012 edition:

 

2009 Poster Playing Cards

In partnership with Methane Studios – a custom deck of playing cards ( a limited edition run). Each of the 52 cards and 2 jokers in this standard deck feature a different poster from the 2009 tour and on the back you’ll find our twist on the classic Bicycle card backs.
