It's been an incredible ride watching Mary Lambert rise to massive success over the past year and a half. Last week she reached out to us to design another show poster for her (and it's one of our favorites).
Mary recently signed to Capitol Records, continues to perform on Macklemore's The Heist world tour, and has a huge solo concert coming up in February (which we created above). Purchase tickets HERE.
FYM wanted to create something very clean and straight-forward for this poster. The hacked triangles together represent an 'M' icon for us. We kept the date and time subtle, as Mary's name alone will stop people on the streets to look more closely at the details. With just a few hints of texture, we focused on making this very modern, playing with white space, typography weights and color theory. We hope you enjoy. Cheers, FYM.
Birdcloud rained its Southern, sexy, warped and wonderful melodies down on my ears and into my beer glass last night.
“Honey, go ask the bartender to put my whisky in the microwave,” Mackenzie requested of the girl standing next to me. She was singing with a sore throat but doing just fine on stage with her bandmate, Jasmin. Gazing at each other over microphones crossed like the blue field of stars on a Confederate Flag, the girls sang about the men they fancied, dogs they buried and bein’ followed by cops even though they ain’t done nothin’ wrong that day.
Being a southern friend transplant settled down in Seattle, I felt just right last night, even though I never set foot in their home town. Still, a small part Seattle was warshed over with sounds that make you wanna go down to the historical Mississippi. There wasn’t a person in the room who wasn’t dancing, clapping or singing along with the band.
My dreams were seeded with Birdcloud song all night long and I woke up singin’ their tunes this morning. I can’t think of a better way to have spent a Sunday evening at the Lo-Fi than with those two ladies.

Pickwick has been touring steadily throughout 2013 since the release of their debut record Can't Talk Medicine earlier this year. The Seattle band closes out 2013 in style with a two-date say in Chicago Illinois. The poster above is our latest design for Pickwick. FYM was going for a classic boxing poster vibe with red and black Chicago colors, and clean layout to make the large amount of content easy to understand.
Last Saturday in Seattle Pickwick pulled off a fantastic pop-up show in Pioneer Square. FYM was really impressed with how tight the band sounded, the stellar new tunes they played, and lead singer Galen Disston's energy was as fiery as we've ever seen him perform.

Seattle's Shenandoah Davis reached out to FYM a couple weeks ago about another poster design for her ongoing concert event --Ladies Club. The second in this series features a stacked line-up of female musicians from the Northwest/West Coast.
FYM is stoked Whitney Lyman and Lena Simon of Pollens will be performing live that evening at Columbia City Theater. To get an idea of the dizzying power of Pollens, watch the video above. This was a fun poster to make, focusing on color theory and typography layout + we get to support such a cool event. Purchase tickets HERE. Cheers, FYM.
Today FYM is excited to share a few of our recent design projects for Seattle's Pickwick. The first is pictured above, Pickwick today announced they will be performing TWO nights in a row at the historic Crocodile!
If you can't wait until December to see them, find the band on the road this Fall; touring with Neko Case and Black Joe Lewis (see the full list of tour dates HERE). Below we have also included other design projects we have done for Pickwick over the past couple months. It's always a pleasure working with this band, visit their merch site HERE. Cheers, FYM.
