Elephunk Poster - Tony Jurgilas
Category: Print & Typography
Entered By: Tony Jurgilas
Description: ELEPHUNK was the name developed for a special fundraising concert for the Global Youth Network’s mission to Myanmar and Thailand. It’s all about the elephants. The illustration depicts one such pachyderm made of up pertinent components… the body of the electric guitar is the head of the elephant, the wings facilitate the tusks, and the trunk is represented by the neck of the instrument. The elephant’s ears are maps of Myanmar and Thailand respectively. The paisley print reinforces the hip, funk vibe of the event and the venue.
"The Elephunk poster tickles so many of my designer senses — the “it’s one thing, then another” idea of the elephant guitar, the elaborate Paisley pattern, the simple but nice typography, the distressed print texture… GOLD INK… I am powerless over my addictions."
