2011 Bardog Tavern Hearse Giveaway Flyer


As part of their annual Halloween party, Memphis' Bardog Tavern raffles off a vintage hearse. By the time of the 2011 party, word had gotten to the owner that I had a degree in writing and a copy of Photoshop burning a hole in my hard drive. I was told to make a poster, so I did.

The influences on the copy and design are fairly obvious: vintage horror and exploitation movie posters.

The owner liked it enough to ditch his own newspaper for the event and use mine. (It wasn't sized appropriately, as I was expecting to be printed on 8.5 x 11 paper, and the results were... interesting. The version featured is my original.) I was asked to make the posters and ads for future events.
