An Entire City On Your Wall

9 Aug

Recently I came across this incredibly neat poster from Ork Posters on a local blog.

Washington DC screenprint, 18" x 24", $27

I just love the graphic simplicity (or is it complexity – I can’t decide?).  In any case, I love all things type and this print is no exception.

Ork Posters are made by a Chicago native who designed a print of her own city, got noticed, and was able to keep on generating fantastic posters for different cities and eventually quit her day job to become a full time poster maker /graphic designer.  Very, very cool.

Prints are available for various places from Boston to Brooklyn, and San Francisco to Seattle.  Prices range from $22 for a basic soy ink poster on matte paper to $27 for a screen print (my city art of choice). Mine arrived quickly and warm and snug in its poster tube, and I put it on my wall that VERY day.

One of the coolest things about Ork Posters is that the designer gives you ideas for various ways to display them: among them, binder clips! It’s always a good thing to be reminded when things aren’t standard-sized, and even better when you can get ideas (for free, and easily!) about how to deal with this dilemma.

Great Lakes screenprint, 24" x 20", $27

I’d happily recommend these to so many of my friends and clients with more modern or eclectic styles; even for those with more traditional tastes this would look great in a fancy frame, sitting on a console table and propped up against a wall.  And hey, there’s nothing wrong with helping to support someone as they live their dream, right?
