Street posters, a mild obsession

I have a thing for street posters. I'm often photographing these in the thin moments between changing walk signals. Band posters played a role in getting me interested in design when I was a teenager, though I don't think I've ever had the opportunity to make one. Rarely do I even make it to the event. These are my favourites of the past couple of years.

Commentary follows each image.


This one for Iron and Wine reminds me of the crayon-layered images I made as a kid. And it might be made that way.

I am a communication designer in Vancouver, BC. Most of my writing and community activism are in the interconnected issues of public transit, local eating and food security, politics, health, environment, and sustainability in general. At heart, I'm a geek and a total treehugger. Nature, tea, good food and great company make me happy.
