He has created concert posters for several indie rock artists, including Black Moth Super Rainbow, the Detroit Cobras, Mogwai, Nada Surf and the Avett Brothers. Vogl also has designed album art for local band Gentleman Auction House and the Hibernauts; promotional material for John Deere, Smoke Free St. Louis and Pabst Blue Ribbon; and T-shirts and scarves.
McKnight has created prints that promote UMSL and St. Louis-area lectures and campus events. She is the education chair of the AIGA St. Louis chapter. Her work has been published in Print Magazine, LA Now, Trepan and Redaction. McKnight has worked on projects for the Museum of Contemporary Art St. Diego and the St. Louis City Museum.
Baumann and Teegarden-Downs creates screen prints, illustrations and designs under the moniker Delicious Design League. The duo has produced work for clients such as Live nation, Urban Outfitters and Metro Chicago. They’ve also worked with numerous indie rock artists, including Ben Kweller, Gomez and Vampire Weekend.
An opening reception will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Aug. 27 in the gallery.
In conjunction with the exhibit, AIGA and Gallery Visio will host a free screening of the new documentary “Died Young, Stayed Pretty” by Eileen Yaghoobian. The documentary takes a candid look at the renaissance of North America’s underground indie-rock poster movement spurred on by the launch of Gigposters.com. A screening of the film will begin at 7 p.m. Sept. 2 in the gallery. A brief Q-and-A with Yaghoobian will immediately follow. Seating is limited.
