Poster Project

FMC is asking graphic designers who do concert posters or album covers and the like to “donate a design” so that we’ll have a wide array of posters available online for music retailers, music studios, rehearsal studios, and guerilla marketing folks to download, print, and spread across the USA over the coming months. Download this zip file with more instructions and files/images.

Posters and flyers

Help us spread the word about the survey by hanging up posters everywhere that musicians congregate: in your local venues, coffee shops, instrument stores, studios, and record stores. Then take a photo and tweet about it! Add hashtag #FMCsurvey
