Hi Tone and U:mack Presents


Promotions was founded in 1994 by Paul ‘Timo’ Timoney as an offshoot of Dublin electronic duo Decal’s Ultramack label. Over the last 24 years they have presented some of the most eclectic and exciting music events in Dublin and further afield.

Niall McCormack, aka Hi Tone, has been designing posters and flyers for U:mack since 1995. Two Dozen presents 24 of the most vibrant posters from the last decade of U:mack events.

Included are posters for international acts such as

Mudhoney, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Acid Mothers Temple, Konono No.1 and Mission of Burma along with designs for local heroes Adebisi Shank and Cian Nugent.

Niall will discuss his approach to designing U:mack posters, their development over the years and how the process informs his work designing album covers for international record labels such as Ace, Vampisoul and Tru Thoughts.
