North Carolina Brass Band
he North Carolina Brass Band, under the direction of Brian Meixner, is a 28-member brass band composed of many of the finest brass players and percussionists in the state. The diverse musicians of the NCBB have come together to create an ensemble as colorful and rich as the literature they perform.
I strive to create designs that cater to their wide ranging audience while pushing to add to the crowd. The pieces created span materials including posters, programs, email blast, advertising for the web and print, and various merchandise.
"Latin Brass Concert" Poster:
A loud brash poster for a loud brass band. I wanted the colors and mood of the poster to reflect what the audience could expect at the concert.
"Christmas Wrapped in Brass" Poster:
Hand-lettered into a tuba; because how else do you wrap Christmas in Brass?
I suggested to the NCBB that "Happy Holidays" be the promo printed on shirts, mugs, and ornaments to reach a wider audience; it's been received extremely well! I hand-letter the phrase into a different brass instrument each year as a collectable series.
