1968

I have an obsession with the 1960’s.

With this personal project, I challenged myself to use color and typography beyond my comfort zone.

1968, the pinnacle of the decade, is examined in the form of booklets, posters, & an app for an imagined exhibition focusing on pop culture, the Space Race, and the Vietnam War.

Only typefaces & images released in 1968 were used – I also challenged myself to a lesson in printmaking by burning my own screens and using fluorescent inks for the posters, a printing technique & color palette relevant to the time period.
