A Delicious Design League & Aesthetic Apparatus Collaborative Print Show
Thursday July 15th from 7pm-11pm
at The Family Room
1821 W Hubbard St. # 202
performance by Hot Club of St. Francis
from TPF: Join us pre-Pitchfork/Flatstock to celebrate the work of two of the longest names in poster art, Delicious Design League and Aesthetic Apparatus, as they join forces to create Cantankerous Hellfighter – a collection of collaborative prints, paper toys, apparel and test prints. Only one rule applies: NO GIG POSTERS!
Both design studios share very similar histories and paths to glory. For example, both shops were started by two heterosexual life mates living together and running a shop out of their basements; both utilize original and found content in their design in unique and novel ways; both give better hugs than handshakes.
Please come and enjoy Cantankerous Hellfighter, another show exploiting The Post Family’s continued fascination with the space between form and function.
