Custom type and layout for this poster in collaboration with Madeline Pasek who did the gorgeous bread clip illustration.
These ingredients make up one of the staple didn’t-do-groceries dinners Madeline and I turn to in times of need. We wanted to make a poster to honor these reliable goods.
The print really is ultra bright in person. Here’s a scan of the desk copy.
The challenge of this poster was to represent my research interests, including a signature of my name in some form. This poster meshes visual languages of surveillance and the obscured darkness of cartoon narratives.
References included heads-up displays, drone scopes, tactical diagrams and thermal mapping.
These elements were juxtaposed with Sanrio characters focusing on the relationship between a character named My Melody and her nemesis Kuromi.
The text was chose from a web fandom that highlights the story of their dynamic and history from Kuromi’s point of view in a way that portrays the sweet and wholesome character of My Melody as the true villain.
“Kuromi swears to get revenge on My Melody by teaming up with Keiichi Hiiragi, a professional young violin player, and collecting 100 black notes to summon the dark power.“
This poster was made to document questions I asked myself while starting grad school, along with excerpts from texts I was thinking about at the time.
How could I present these excerpts and references in a dream like state?
