- For The Record, I Think So
The show was an opportunity for me to include myself with a energetic and kind bunch of Chicago designers. There is a feeling that things are happening here, and the goodwill and energy among our community is cause for much excitement.
This piece brought together an interest in geometry, traditional signpainting technique and letterforms, irony, and wordplay. Less a piece of graphic design, and more an artwork, the very confident statement “For the record” is immediately diffused with the less confident “I think so”, creating an uneasy balance.
