PoetryFest

CLIENT
Adult School of Montclair

Trippy text and colors joined an art nouveau muse when the client suggested using 1960's rock posters as the inspiration for promoting a series of poetry readings and open mic nights at area libraries. Flyers were designed for printing in-house and artwork was modified for black & white use in a catalog.

A unique deck of playing cards, cut by hand, made a great gift for a dog lover, and featured the recipient's two dogs as the king and queen (and my own pup as the jack).
