Ahh, I get that tune in my head too often. OK, every time term 'night lights' comes in my head! :D
I love this style. I don't know what it is, because it is not about Art Deco, Retro or Constructivism, but rather about the feeling - futurism and nostalgia at the same time.

It's not one of their "well known" songs, but I love the feeling of how it's kind of a love song to a city.
Thanks for the really nice words, much appreciated!

Kraftwerk and modernist art deco poster stylings- a winning combination! Great work, especially for how little time it took you!

They were connected with that well before I thought of it, but it IS a winning combo! Thanks!

Great poster! Personally, I was always a "Trans Europe Express" fan. You don't hear Kraftwerk mentioned very often, anymore. Are they still producing music?

Yes, they toured pretty extensively for the "Tour De France Soundtracks" album, and rumours are that they are working on new music right now, although that could mean for the next 5 years, knowing them!

I mention Kraftwerk as much as I can, because people need to know how important these guys are in music history.
Thanks for the words, glad to meet another Kraftwerk fan.

Not liking the parts where the yellow shapes overlap, it looks kinda messy.

This was a quick one, and I'm thinking I'm going to have a re-think and re-do some of the elements. I'm not 100% on the windows either. Thanks for the feedback, appreciated!

I really dig this poster! But I have to say, the "Neon Lights" looks somewhat off, without perspective.

The "Neon Lights" type actually IS on the same perspective as the word "Kraftwerk", but because it's such an extended script, in foreshortened form it looks almost normal. I may go and alter a few elements of this one when I have a chance. Thanks for the feedback!
