The Letter X Poster
Poster | Getting Upper exhibit at Pasadena Museum of California Art
From the show:
Inspired by language-based experimentation and how it can unlock new avenues of cultural expression, Getting Upper curator Amos Klausner charged twenty-six designers with re-imagining a letter from the alphabet, using the illegibility and deconstructive nature of graffiti as their starting point. If “getting up” describes the recognition that a graffiti artist seeks through proliferate tagging, “getting upper” is the term that Klausner uses to suggest breaking free from history, from the global marketing culture that long-ago borrowed the best of the graffiti scene, and from legibility itself. The result is an alphabet that reconsiders our collective understanding of what a letter can be and how it functions to create language and meaning.
Each of the 26 letters has been published as a limited edition run of 100 silk-screened (by Bloom Press) posters and will be available for sale at the museum store and online.
Typographic Posters (and Postcards)
Type specimen illustrations | PSY/OPS Type Foundry
In order to showcase the beauty of the construction of these hand crafted typefaces, I used the letter forms as my pallete . Each poster is an exploration of the concept and inspiration behind the typeface itself.
"Clavicle" combines the boney serifs of Rod Cavazos' Retablo typeface with the woodcut illustrations of famed Mexican artist Jose Guadalupe Posada. The result of the layering, burning and subtractive process is reminiscent of Dante's descriptions of The Hells.
