After reviving Culicidae Architectural Press, which had been folded into Culicidae Press a few years ago, we were asked to design a new logo that would reflect the brand’s updated image and rejuvenated approach to publishing books about architecture and the built environment.
Here are the different draft versions and the final design (above) for a poster to announce the intercollegial workshop between Roma Tre University and Iowa State University in Rome as part of the WallWalk project this coming March. The progression is quite clear.
Here’s the final version of the poster I designed for the 20th Festival of Women Composers. The client didn’t quite like the purple, so that went the way of the dodo. Also, the Valois tapestry was hard to decypher, even at the 24″ x 36″ size. Rescaling the image (showing only a detail) and using the original colors worked wonders. For the remaining text, logos, and the bird I used color swatches pulled from the Valois tapestry. The client was impressed;–)
Here are three versions for posters I designed as a pro bono effort for the Margaret Zach International Library of Women Composers which organizes the annual International Festival of Women Composers. This is the 20th anniversary, so we played up that number in the poster, and given the emphasis on women we used purple for the initial draft. As an alternative we borrowed colors from the Valois tapestry (lower left corner), which the festival’s founder and creative director Dr. Miriam Zach wanted to include, since some of the music references the Medici Court. Draft No. 3 is a variation on No. 2. The bird in the ‘0/female’ sign comes directly from the Woodstock poster, in commemoration of the power of music to bring people together.
