Discover San Francisco Poster
Image 01 of 02
We were one of five designers asked by Neenah Paper to create a poster for distribution at HOW Design Live in San Francisco. Our strategy was to create an image that would introduce out-of town attendees to San Francisco’s scenic wonders in a way that encourages participation and engagement. Our solution utilizes illustrations of San Francisco’s world famous landmarks to engage the viewer in forming the city’s name, creating a typographic tour of San Francisco.
Each landmark is keyed to descriptive text at the bottom of the poster, enabling viewers to discover useful facts and figures about the city. The poster was acquired by the U.S. Library of Congress’ Popular & Applied Graphic Art, Prints & Photographs Division, home to one of the world’s most comprehensive poster collections, in recognition of “visually celebrating distinctive features of a world-class West Coast city with wit and imagination.”
