aiga/ny 30th anniversary poster - deanne cheuk
- the story
How do some of New York City's biggest graphic designers say "happy birthday?" Why, with an oversized card, of course!
2012 marks the 30th anniversary of the New York chapter of the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA), the nation's premier professional design organization. To celebrate, this long-standing force behind the Big Apple's design scene asked 30 design luminaries to capture their experience with AIGA/NY in the form of a limited edition poster.
Originally from "down under," specifically the remote city of Perth, Australia, young gun Deanne Cheuk contributed this moody black and white illustration of Manhattan as a starlit metropolis. "Before I moved [to New York City] 12 years ago I had a poster of the city hanging above my desk that I would look at and dream about. For months and months, I just wished that I could move to New York City. So when I was asked to make one of these posters I was totally thrilled because I just thought that this is my chance to recapture that hope and dream, that magic image of NYC that I used to have above my desk."
As an art director, illustrator and artist, she has been commissioned by top international companies, including Target, American Express, Dell, Lane Crawford, Levi's, Microsoft, Nickelodeon, Nokia, Nike, Converse, Olay, Sprint, Swatch, MTV, Gap, Real Simple, The Guardian, T Magazine, and The New York Times Magazine and has worked with David Carson, Doug Aitken, and Conan O'Brien. Made in New York City.
