Art Encounter: Jeff Truth Design

Last week I featured a lot of classic poster designers from the Flatstock 24 show, so to balance things out I thought I’d include a quick plug for a local Austin poster designer whose style is much less traditional than most of those at that show. Jeff Truth‘s designs are much more derivative from the tradition of punk poster design of the late 70s and early 80s and pretty far from the tradition of the psychedelic 60s. But they are still darkly visual, unique and somewhat disturbing, with interesting use of type and art.

I actually discovered Truth’s website and his work from a xeroxed sign at a trendy local resale shop. Sadly, because it is in Flash, I can’t provide many examples of his work here, but it’s worth stopping by and taking a long look if you are interested in edgy, contemporary design. Truth also has good taste in grungy fonts. Several of his designs use our Vaquero font prominently.
