I have a soft spot in my heart for prints that involve colored paper and black and white ink. Colored paper alone is wonderful, but somehow adding black and white to it makes a print especially crisp, clean, and sharp. I just can’t get enough.
A San Francisco- and Brooklyn-based design firm called Dirty Bandits (run by lettering/illustration extraordinaire Annica Lydenberg) has mastered the art of the simple, clever poster, with a nod to hand-painted supermarket signs of the past. Her new Love For Sale typographic paintings are playful explorations of the combination of marketing phrasing and affection “for sale.”
The show is up in Brooklyn at Just Another Project Space from February 5th–26th, 2015.
