Nat Damm

A few weeks ago I asked the Design Milk Twitter followers about some of their favorite band poster illustrators and I’m going to highlight one here each week. This is the fifth in the series.

Seattle-based poster designer and musician, Nat Damm is now 29, but he’s been designing posters since age 16, and has been on the scene since age 14. He has also played drums for a number of bands including Akimbo, The Tight Bros From Way Back When, Automaton Adventure Series and others.

Damm, under the name DammDammDamm, created more than 1,300 posters, shirts, album covers and other band-related paraphernalia and his client list is quite extensive covering local bands to major acts. There is a hint of nostalgia and underground grit in his designs, bringing back memories of listening to bands in dingy bar basements or underground clubs.
