poster for the nashville-based band, the protomen
_how
it's 2024. the protomen first took to the stage 20 years ago. to mark the occasion they are playing a show with the same bands (almost) that played with them at that first show. they asked us to make a poster to promote the occasion.

caspar had long been bothered with how badly daft punk had executed the cover artwork for their final album, random access memories. despite having access to their own helmets to photograph, they made a poor computer rendering of them instead. now, since the protomen had often referred to themselves as "a southern, buck-toothed daft punk", it felt right to finally set the record straight. we shipped their smashed-up, 20 year old helmets to joey ciccoline and he set about photographing them in the appropriate manner.

if you have the means to make it to the show we do recommend it. the protomen are, despite the tongue-in-cheek daft punk reference here, one of the most unique and extraordinary live bands in existence today.

_what
poster for the short film, any sign at all.
_how
bridget maloney recommended us to faryl amadeus, writer and director of the wonderful short film, any sign at all. the film depicts a broke, desperate, conflicted, pregnant woman making her way through the fierce california heat to give her baby away for adoption.

we fell for the story and the aesthetic of the film immediately. after talking to faryl about her work we presented her with a range of different ways to approach a potential poster. faryl chose the "emotional road sign" idea you see here, itself an exercise in the complexities of california road sign design. caspar made the poster in the berlin studio with a laptop, printer, bright light and camera. 

the film premieres at the 2024 florida film festival. do see it if you have the means.

_what
poster for the documentary, the garden cadences.
_how
old friend and long standing collaborator, zsuzsanna kiraly asked that we might make a poster for her latest production, the garden cadences, a new film by dane komljen. we've made the posters for two previous films by dane, phantasies├Ątze and afterwater. we now have a good understanding of each other's work, and this time dane and zsuzsanna trusted us to make any poster we wanted for the film.

mollies is a queer-feminist collective that had been living at a trailer park next to ostkreuz train station in berlin for nearly a decade. the garden cadences documents their last summer there before being evicted. caspar made the poster in berlin after spending hours looking through the smithsonian institute's digital archives.
