Steve Reid Foundation

Logo for The Steve Reid Foundation. Set up by Gilles Peterson in memory of the great drummer Steve Reid who lost his life to cancer in April last year. The foundation will work with The Musicians Benevolent Fund to help struggling Musicians with long-term or life-threatening health problems. Look out for the Brownswood Pop-Up shop on April 16th were a limited number of these posters will be available. Gilles will also be running the London Marathon on the 17th April – you can sponsor him here: www.justgiving.com/GillesPeterson

I've used the skin of a drum as the canvas for the logo and chosen typography that feels classic and American. (some sneaking tweaking to Buffet Script). I'm really happy with how the double sided posters came out and it also looks great printed on a T-shirt. Just need to find a spare drum kit and see how it looks on there...
