Save the date! Our talented friend Cedric Michael Cox will be having an exhibit of new paintings entitled Soul within Structure at the Contemporary Arts Center, with an opening reception on Sat 24 Oct, 1-4pm. I had fun designing the poster promoting the exhibit and, this time, our intern helped with the printing.
The forms I used were lifted from this painting by Cedric, and also from the form of the Zaha Hadid-designed CAC itself.
Here’s our intern, thinking about helping us in the studio, but mostly focusing on hunting birds.
She checked out the quality of our transparencies. Yup, passable…
One color down, one to go.
The test prints on butcher paper turned out pretty cool!
The finished poster.
We printed 200 of these bad boys, so hopefully you’ve noticed them around town! If you’re curious about our printing process, check out the step-by-step documentation of printing the OTR/Gateway Summer Celebration poster. See more of Cedric’s paintings on his site.
Nice design, but I prefer the test prints.
Aww, Ben, test prints are always cooler because they’re full of happy accidents!
That’s a beautiful and dynamic composition, and I love recognizing the CAC building itself within the other shapes. It’s an unusual exhibit promotional piece, for sure.
Thank you so much!
