For the past 25 years, our studio has shared a unique partnership with the iconic Burlington, Vermont music venue, Higher Ground, and Iskra Print Collective. Working with Iskra, our studio’s designers have created hundreds of striking silkscreen posters for special shows at Higher Ground, posters that aren’t available for purchase that evoke the spirit of each band with bold creativity, providing concert-goers with the unique experience of a free, limited-edition commemorative poster you can only get your hands on if you stay until the end of a show.

To help honor this quarter-century collaboration, we worked with the Higher Ground team to produce a high-quality, 280-page book, which includes posters for artists like Ween, Bob Dylan, The Lumineers, Ice Cube, Robyn, Bon Iver, Norah Jones, Wilco, My Morning Jacket, Rob Zombie, Sean Paul, Wu Tang Clan, The Black Crowes, Gregg Allman, Phish, Taj Mahal, Maggie Rogers, Willie Nelson, Modest Mouse, Jimmy Cliff, and many more. The book itself, and the 25 years of music and creative collaboration that inspired it, were celebrated with a launch party at the Karma Bird House gallery in Burlington, Vermont.
