Join us for a special panel discussion on designing for music projects from packaging to posters with Bay Area heavy hitters Mary Banas, James Edmondson, and Jason Munn.

Banas’ recent collaboration with photographer Bao Ngo on Mitski’s Be the Cowboy (2018) was nominated for a Grammy in the category of Best Recording Package. Edmondson created a phototype inspired poster series for Vulfpeck’s 2017 North American tour and a custom typeface for the band’s ongoing projects. Munn has been designing posters for musicians like Death Cab for Cutie and Leon Bridges for the past 15 years. The panel will be moderated by Kate Long, Letterform Archive’s Assistant Librarian.

The talk begins at 6:30pm, but come early to grab a beer and a chance to see Between Measures: The Intersection of Music and Design exhibit, featuring work from all of our panelists. Doors open at 5:30pm.
