United Prints Of America - USA Print
I have been inspired for a number of years now by Sufjan Stevens’ grand but ultimately ill fated attempt to create a record for each state in America. He only got to two before he gave up and started alienating me with records about bridges but those two records for me are his finest. Straight away I have beat his two and I see this being an ongoing project, but only if I vista more places.
The first idea I came up with turned out to be the show poster and from that I came up with this variant. The name of the show “United Prints of America” seemed to make sense and from there it was an easy leap to this idea. The only tricky part was keeping it minimal enough and sticking to my unwritten two colours only rule. I ended up settling at three but I think the detail on making the frames pop out are essential.
I was asked to contribute to Uberpong from the wonderful people at Origin of Cool. Uberpong combines the work of 20 artists and graphic designers with table tennis.
If you love table tennis and think that it could do with looking a bit more exciting then this project is for you. There are some great artists involved, included poster buddies Clint Wilson & John Vogl
