Hot Mart is an alt-gaze band from Philly, drawing inspiration from The Cure, The Jesus and Mary Chain, and Sonic Youth. Their music combines dreamy vocals, pulsing bass, and crunchy guitars.

In Fall 2022, I was approached by Hot Mart’s frontwoman Dani Bruno to design promotional graphics for their EP release show at Kung Fu Necktie in Philadelphia. The event took place in December 2022 and featured other acts such as Coral Gables and Austin Albright + The Nephews. Using their original logo and some personal photography provided from the band, I wanted to evoke a grunge yet ethereal feeling.
