Music Art #10. Duran Duran, Strange Behaviour Tour 1987.


I was informed earlier today that the band was sent the link to Circadian Creative! So John, Nick, Simon and Roger – Welcome, I hope you like what you see and thanks for stopping by! Also, thank you for 30 years of great music!

Today I close my Duran Duran design spree with a concert poster. This was an actual show from 1987. It was my first Duran Duran show and, unofficially, my first concert. I can’t consider this a completely original design. However, I will consider it an original layout. The red, black and gold stars and bars graphic was a prominent design element for The Strange Behaviour Tour. It was featured on the cover of the concert program. Other merchandise donned the graphic as well. Personally, I used to own the program and a t-shirt. Where I took liberties can be seen in the textured effect I applied to the red back ground. The original designs featured solid colors. I used the black stripes to frame the three members of the band, converting the images to black and white and under exposing and diminishing their contrast a bit to maintain the original solid black bars as much as possible. I then added the concert details at the top on either side of the star. I also utilized the star to highlight the name of the opening act. That’s about it. Hope you like. Tomorrow is a new day and a new band, or musical artist. Who will it be? I don’t know yet. See you all then.. ~Sean
