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.”
