Experiments in City Life

This cityscape design was an experiment using simple shapes, line marks and a minimum number of colours.

The digital design came first; the cityscape was used as part of a promotional poster I designed for an afterhours event we produced as Spins & Needles in collaboration with the National Gallery of Canada. The night featured late-night access to the Gallery’s contemporary collection, interactive DIY art/craft projects, music by DJs Jason Pelletier and Clifford Brown and guided tours of the exhibits.

The cityscape was later rendered into a 3-colour hand silkscreened poster during a summer program in silkscreening at the School of Visual Arts in New York City.
