and so ends my third week of blogging! its about time i showed you something i've done isn't it? well, late last year i was invited to participate in a 'flash night' (a one-night-only art show) with some very talented ladies. having spent the earlier part of the year working on very elaborate, very monochromatic hand drawn work i was craving something exactly the opposite, and from this desire the posters featured below were born.
i wanted to experiment with bold color combinations and simple graphic elements to accentuate the sexy curves of the 'carousel' typeface. they were originally printed in A3 size on 300gsm glossy stock and although only a few are posted, there was a poster created for each letter of the alphabet. while some of the elements are related to the letter, most were abstract - much to the confusion of those of us raised on a hearty diet of alphabet books!
please click the images below to see larger versions.
it has been interesting hearing which letter people favor and why, and so far i haven't met a synesthesian who vehemently disagrees with my color/letter combinations!
do you like one in particular?
