The Modern Lovers

I love stuff like this.

  1. The Modern Lovers, a rock band in the 70’s, play a show in Boston, probably having some poster of their own for the show.
  2. Mike Joyce is inspired by the music and combines his love of it with the design style of Swiss Modernism to create a new poster for it.
  3. Pete Barr is inspired by Mike’s Swissted project and animates the design for it, giving it a ton of new life.

This is what makes the internet cool. I’d bet none of these people have ever met each other.

And this is just one example. Mike has designed hundreds of these posters, and Pete has animated a number of them. Here’s another lovely example.
