Our Fall / Winter 2010 collection of art prints was inspired by motivational posters from the 1980's.
Specifically, we were inspired by posters that were hung in corporate offices; the "Hang In There Baby!" poster (roughly translated "Tiens bon-cherie!" in French) being the most popular. Our intent was to elevate this genre of kitsch posters; making them more aesthetically elegant by combining Victorian-era French patterns with modern typography and more conceptually visceral by changing the content (most of which came from a book about a 19th century, U.S. type foundry called "MacKellar, Smith's & Jordan" that was written by Doug Clouse and published by Oak Knoll Press). Whether in your living room, bedroom, in your studio or cubicle; we hope that these posters will inspire you to find light amidst the darkness, to imagine, create, and just keep plugging away.
