Sun Ra Arkestra
“Sun Ra Arkestra is coming to play next month for this year’s summer opening, and the poster is inspired by the use of suns across the band’s CDs and clothing. I also wanted to capture the psychedelic sound of the jazz.
“The most difficult component was the typography. I’m never looking for the next, new typeface. I often use Helvetica as I’ve said, but sometimes I experiment with it by putting it into an unexpected format. Here, I placed it in a triangle. The Strelka always asks me to make everything very readable and I try my best, but sometimes I cover letters up or distort them. They often say ‘Oh Anna, it’s impossible to read!’ and we have to meet in the middle.”
