Captions: (1) P1W2 is an archive of a frenatic time. A book made five years after graduating from CalArts. A look back into the notes, research, scribbles, that lead to posters and discoveries made late at night; (2) CalArts Posters [varying sizes, all hand silk-screened] With each new poster there developed a thread of celebration, an event that allowed the designer to step outside of the everyday and try out a new mask. With each mask, new tones and personalities developed, some to scream and some to whisper.
Awards: The Ohara poster won an STA Award in 2010 and was placed in the Chicago Design Archive; the 40 Year Lazor, Timboctou, & Hirsch were published in Unit Editions’ Type+ book; Filmmobile & St. Paddy’s Singalong were purchased by LACMA as part of The Machine Projects Poster Archive. (*) However, the best part of these posters remain to be the collaborations, the process of printing, and the ideas that were able to come to life in a physical form [eventhough their births usually happened very early in the morning].
