To celebrate it’s 10th anniversary, electronic music magazine Resident Advisor has curated a series of events to take place around the world, each of which will be marked with the release of a limited edition print sporting artwork created b the likes of Simon Cook (above), Trevor Jackson, Laurent Fetis, and The Designers Republic…
Recent graduate Simon Cook was charged with designing the print to further commemorate RA’s Barcelona event on June 17 (above), and Trevor Jackson created the artwork (below) for the London party happening this Saturday June 11.
Actually, Trevor Jackson’s poster has been printed in different colourways, signed and numbered:
The prints, each limited to just 75 editions, are being hand screenprinted by K2 in London on to A1 200gsm Cyclus Offset uncoated stock and offered for sale at a very reasonable £15 each, the idea being that they’re almost gifts to Resident Advisor readers.Below is a sneak peek at Zeke Clough‘s artwork for the New York event set to take place in August. Line up and date TBC.
“We wanted to do something special to mark the anniversary, to bring together artists who’ve helped shape the electronic music scene as we know it and surprise our readers,” explains Nick Sabine, founder fo Resident Advisor. “So the idea of a series of events with a secret headliner was born: we select ten artists influential in electronic music over the last decade to curate line-ups that include emerging talents that will influence the next ten years. We do it in ten cities, in ten different countries with thriving RA communities. And we’ve asked ten visual-artists to create a unique poster for each event. We’re really excited to see how it all comes together.”
