Rolly Crump is one of our favorite designers in the whole wide world. Whether we’re talking about his theme park contributions for Disney, or his satyrical counter-culture posters, Rolly rules.
A few years ago Los Angeles Magazine asked us to create an illustration to accompany an article about the legendary artist, and of course we were thrilled. Our first rough concept was heavily inspired by our love for Rolly’s “Museum of the Weird”:
|Our first concept. Too weird?|

The art director liked it, and decided we should do sort of a mock “attraction poster” with the elements. The design became more and more simple as our “poster” took shape. We created our art digitally in Adobe Illustrator and played around with possible color schemes.
