Tear Drops & Balloons poetry book design for Mike Posner
Mike Posner is an artist, a grammy-nominated musician, an accomplished songwriter, a performer, and a poet. He is my close friend and we designed this book side by side. It is his first book of poetry he has created.
Tear Drops and Balloons is a collection of poems by Mike Posner. It comes as a breath of fresh air in a time otherwise polluted with catch phrases, “ism’s”, and cheap quotes that have slowly permeated what used to be poetic expression. Fearlessly, Posner cuts quickly to the bone, speaks from the gut, and offers his perspective on the world. By holding nothing back and showing no mercy in his words, he has created a body of work that showcases his ability to open up his own wounds and shows us what lies within.
