Conscious Alliance are doing something. These guys are on a mission to make things better in the world. Sure, thats what everyone wants, right? But these guys are actually DOING something. Making moves as they say. By trading posters for food at concerts, Conscious Alliance has collected and distributed over 500,000 pounds of relief for those who are in need. And from the looks of things – this is just the beginning.

The beautiful thing for artists and designers is it makes it easy to use our skills to help out. It feels good to help these guys out with designs – it is actually an honor.

The design above is for the Green Festival in Washington D.C.

Dispatch:Zimbabwe

We did a three poster series for the benefit concert Dispatch played at MSG this summer. All the proceeds of the concerts went to benefit Zimbabwe. And all three nights sold out in no time. We produced one poster for each night – together making a triptych.. Two-color, 16×20 – run of 500.

Something from a While back


This is one of those things we never got around to posting on our old site. Elephant Magazine is a national publication, based in Boulder, with a focus on Buddhism, yoga and conscious / sustainable living. T2P designed the cover for the Winter ’06 issue…was that really almost a year ago?!? Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, depicted on the cover, was a pioneer of Shambhala Buddhism in the West and lived and worked in Boulder for many years.

Many thanks to the nice folks over at the Denver Egotist for the write-up and for adding us to their “local talent” section. If you’re looking to stay on top of the happenings in the local design / ad scene, the Egotist is a must visit. Make sure to stop by every day or two or you’ll have a lot of catching up to do, since these guys get around to updating their site way more often than we do.

Monolith Festival 2007

Rob and I made the trek to Red Rocks on Saturday, opting for the day that the Flaming Lips would headline and hoping for a repeat of their epic show from last summer. $50 seemed like a fair price for a ticket, considering the lineup, and in retrospect it was worth the money. Monolith was not without its share of first year kinks, though, mainly with sound problems that plagued the main stage all day. The best stuff we saw was from acts that we stumbled upon at the smaller stages: Bob Log III, White Rabbits and Art Brut all put on great sets.

Unfortunately, Anton Newcombe of Brian Jonestown Massacre spent half an hour bitching out his band and the guy running the soundboard before making it through a complete song, and Spoon, who put on one of the best shows I’ve seen in a long time last year at the Boulder Theater was way off, eerily similar to when one of your friends from sea level visits and has way too much to drink before going on to be loud and obnoxious for the rest of the evening. Maybe the bands should have had more time to acclimatize to the mile high city? The Lips were on their A-game as expected, but it would have been hard to top last year’s show–Wayne Coyne even took the time to thank everyone who had been there a year earlier for one of the best show’s in the band’s history.

Shiny New Site

Andy “RandyPants” Dutlinger performing some pre-flight checks and measures. No, that’s not a Medeival cave, it’s our printing studio.

Getting around to updating our old website once every six months just wasn’t cutting it, and besides, everyone’s got a blog these days and we were starting to feel left out. This means that if we get off our collective lazy ass every now and then, posters should show up shortly after they are printed, hopefully around the same time that the show they were made for happens. It also means that we can show more photos of our screenprinting process and talk more about the shows that we’re able to make it to, although we promise not to bore you with too much unnecessary banter.

We’re kicking things off with a post for each of the posters that hadn’t been added to our old site since the last update, so scroll away to see what we’ve been up to. We’ve got a store in the works that will make it way easier to buy prints, but in the meantime if you see something you’d like to hang on your wall or send your grandma for her birthday, send us an email to info(at)table2press.com and we’ll let you know if there are any left and what the details are.

50 Posters by Table2Press

We threw a little shin dig at White Hills right around the time we printed our 50th poster. Big Diffy put on a great show and copious amounts of PBR were consumed.

Spring Creek Bluegrass Band

I went to see Del McCoury at the Boulder Theater and these guys were the opening act. They really impressed me. The band are all excellent players and singers and they have a respect for the tradition of bluegrass. Great stage presence and amazing original songs. So I asked them if they needed some “graphical assistance” and this project was born. They are a young band so I crafted a poster that they could use for some time – based on an old broadsides style.. 

Spring Creek just became the only band to ever win the band competition at RockyGrass and Telluride Bluegrass Festival in the same year. Congrats guys!

Flatstock 12

We took a trip down to SXSW in Austin in March to man our booth at Flatstock 12. We brought these posters along to help promote flatstock and to trade with other poster artists. We got drunk and stumbled around Austin. We hung out with Jeff Holland.
