Steve Wilson: Mark Knopfler

Design, Illustration, Illustrators/Designers, Music, Poster, Steve Wilson, Typography

Steve Wilson designed this one-color screen print on gold commissioned by Another Planet Entertainment for Mark Knopfler’s October performances at the Fox Theater in Oakland.


“The design was based around  Knopfler’s signature guitar, a Fender Stratocaster, combined with elements from the amazing venue– Fox Theater in Oakland where he was performing. The Fox Theater was opened in 1928 and was originally going to be called The Baghdad because of the strong middle Eastern influence in it’s design and decor.  I used the highly detailed patterns and decorative elements from the interior and exterior of the building as inspiration for the design which was then screen printed in black ink on gold paper.”
