Always Summer… Circa 1967

AIGA’s Always Summer poster show is a prime display of the creative excellence of Northeast Florida’s greatest design minds. The premise is simple. Design a poster of any size, in any medium, referencing a song that reminds you of summer. It’s a great exercise to brush out the cobwebs and create without limits. My entry just happened to celebrate a summer that happened before I was born. It’s of particular note to me because it’s when one of my favorite Beatles albums was released. Where I went a little different with it, though, was in how I portrayed the Fab Four: as actual peppers. To round out the food theme, the salt & pepper/fork & spoon combinations formed the shapes of Paul McCartney’s Hofner bass guitar.
