Why Make Sense?
These are the tour posters for a band called Hot Chip. The tour follows their latest album Why Make Sense? This new LP features the acclaimed singles Huarache Lights and Need You Now. Recorded in Oxfordshire and London and produced by Hot Chip with Mark Ralph and mixed by the band, David Wrench (FKA Twigs, Caribou) and Jimmy Douglass (Timbaland, Aaliyah). The album features guest appearances from De La Soul’s Posdnuos and Scritti Politti’s Green Gartside (Love Is The Future), as well as live instrumentation and backing vocals from touring band members Sarah Jones and Rob Smaughton.
The A2 size posters are silkscreened in three colours on each side and the inks have been changed to produce four different colour versions as you can see in the below picture.
The posters are printed on our StarFine White 300gsm and the result is simply stunning - depth of colour is superb:
The posters are designed by Nick Relph. He also designed the album covers, which due to a unique algorithm, randomly alters each album cover resulting in each cover being different. You can view the artwork, designed by Nick Relph, here: http://www.dominorecordco.com/whymakesense/artwork/

The prints were screen-printed by Gary Parselle at Brighton based silkscreen studio, The Private Press.
