Best Local Concert Poster Designer 

Jake Kelly

Last year, Jake Kelly released Fliers: 2000-2015, a self-published book featuring more than 400 black-and-white local concert posters. Having produced more than 1,000 fliers since 2000, Kelly has become the most prolific concert poster designer currently working in the region.
