    Help!

    I am creating wedding save-the-dates and invitations for a couple and I need to recreate the font from this music festival poster!

    They met at this music festival and are dead set on having the invitations match the poster.

    Any ideas on how to recreate this? I've been trying but it hasn't looked right.
    Maybe it's a real font out there that I haven't found yet?

    If anyone can help me out I would greatly appreciate it!

    Thanks,
    Veronica

      For anyone not familiar (I had to look it up) Big Day Out is a yearly Australian music festival. Based on a google search, it looks like each year the title is a variation of this same type, seems to have a "base" font, with a variety of decorative techniques applied through the years. No luck on the name of the font.

            I was able to get a reasonable facsimile in about 20 minutes by making a brush. But I didn't take the time to do the corners and end pieces. A circle works pretty good though.
            All of the shapes are squares turned 90degrees. You also have to use the pathfinder to crop the shape to have square ends so they track.

                I dunno, I think it is worse when the dead headliners DO show up.

                Not very sexy imho

                I'm a creature of necessity. A lot of times the end client will want an actual signed release and a real photo credit, so you have to attempt to find the artist.

                All I can suggest is consult a tax expert in the UK. If your company doesn't mind you moonlighting like this, maybe they could suggest someone for you.

                I do business with people in the UK a lot. Because the gig they hire us for is going to be in the US, they time shift their design staff so they are available during US Eastern Time. It's the only way...
