Who are you and what do you do? My name is Matt Limmer, I’m an artist and graphic designer. I make posters, zines, art prints, books and album covers.
Current city: I was born in New Zealand, grew up in Australia, but now live in Bremen, Germany.
How did you make these? Most of these artworks were made in Photoshop using a Wacom tablet, or by hand, and then scanned and manipulated digitally.
Why did you make these? I love making art and posters specifically. I love music and always wanted to make gig posters. I have worked as a graphic designer before in boring corporate jobs and last year I kind of threw it all in and I moved to New Zealand. I was just working as a cleaner in a hotel in a small coastal town, and I decided to give myself a challenge to make a new poster every week. It was fun and motivating, and I have stuck to the deadline of posting a new poster every Monday. But one day I saw a band I really like, No Age, from LA was surprisingly going to be playing in a small town near me and I contacted them and asked to make a poster for that show. Luckily enough they and the promoter said yes! And it all really just took off from there. I’ve been making posters for cool bands and festivals pretty regularly since then.
What do people typically say about your work? People say they love the textures and attention to detail, and that some of my posters remind them of a time long gone.
Clients: No Age, Screaming Females, Steve Towson, Diffraction Collective, The Plant, Big Scout.
