If you’re at all familiar with the music scene in Chicago, I guarantee you’ve seen the work of Ryan Duggan. This artist and printer calls the Windy City home and has shown, and created, work all over. He’s even expanded outside of the city (and international) limits with gallery exhibitions in Toronto, Berlin, France, London, The Netherlands, and Japan. Impressive, right?
Duggan’s gig poster work, and generally his design work over all, has a fairly minimal approach. He’s got the eye of a comic artist, both with his overall style and with the quips he works into the compositions. They’re damn funny and lighten the tone of the gig poster, which is often viewed as a serious, over-complicated piece of work. With such a distinctive style and an awesome attitude about poster-making and printing, Duggan has a good thing going.
