Emek is a poster artist extraordinaire! He had designed posters for The Decemberists, Erykah Badu, Coachella 2010, Audioslave, Velvet Revolver, the list goes on and on.
Here is one of my favorites by Emek for the movie The Hangover.
Some background behind the design as described on Emek’s website:
“Justin Hampton of PNE was contacted by movie director Todd Phillips. He explained that he wanted to do something special for the cast and crew of his movie ‘The Hangover,’ as it had become the highest grossing comedy of all time. A great rapport developed and Phillips commissioned PNE for a special project.
Todd asked Hampton to oversee the art direction of his vision with PNE. He wanted Justin, Emek and Jermaine to create a set of commemorative rock-art style prints that embraced the no-holds-barred and reckless abandon of his hit film. “Make the posters…just wrong” he said. With this inspiration, the trifecta set out to do just that. After months in development the project is now finished and the set of 3 prints is complete, each showcasing a different slant on the film.”
