aiga/ny 30th anniversary poster-project projects
- 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.
"Since it was being printed, we tried to play up the use of color and the celebratory energy that it provides," says Adam Michaels of Project Projects, who approached the commission with what he calls a kind of "poster-as-birthday-card". He explains, "Color gradients both reference the history of poster printing (split fountains and all that) as well as ideas of change and transformation. The poster also represents the studio, so we asked everyone here to give us one or two 30s of their own design to throw in the mix—the result is both multi-vocal and collective." Made in New York City.
