In the expanding line of “Science Builds The Future” posters, 2018 brings forth the need to have smart people building great robots and becoming great mechanical engineers. In looking back at my series of posters, I’ve tried to represent a different field of expertise with each one, and also: ROBOTS! It’s just empirical data, people.
This snappy looking poster is now available to purchase from my online store, along with the rest of the series, and just in time for holiday gift giving for the scientist or robot lover on your list. And yes, I’ve made no attempt to hide my love for “The Iron Giant” in the design inspiration for my robot.
Earlier this year, I worked with Com-Ed Chicago (via Leo Burnett Chicago) to create these two posters as part of Com-Ed’s Black History Month promotion to schools and colleges to promote diversity in the STEM fields and to encourage kids to pursue science-based careers. Having seen my “Science Builds The Future” series, they wanted to boost that signal, and these images became parts of social media outreach, posters, postcards and street banners for the promotion.
My poster for local record store Green Light Music for this year’s Record Store Day event. Decided to emulate the 1950’s sci-fi movie poster vibe with a modified hi-fi robot menace. Signed limited edition art prints of this poster will be available to the frist 50 lucky souls through the door.
An exercise that turned into a poster.
I’ve always loved the idea of the “dazzle” camouflage used on battle ships in World War 1; hiding in plain sight, confounding your enemies with hard to understand data, and the visual connection to the Vorticism art movement. These crazily decorated ships were a highly effective means to screw with German U-Boats being able to target and disable them. I also like the metaphor of being able to hide by not hiding, both as disruptive camouflage and as a personal statement.
