If you are not already aware of illustrator and graphic designer Frank Chimero, he was born in Long Island, New York and raised in Sprinfield, Missouri, currently teaches design and typography at Missouri State University. Chimero’s fascination with the creative process, curiosity, and visual experience informs all of his work. Each piece is the part of an exploration in finding wit, surprise, honesty and joy in the world around us. For Frank, the work is play, and the play is work.
The Inspirational Design Poster series, below, are simply aimed at inspiring designers. I am sure you will agree, they do.
One of the results of working in an industry, like design, where everyone makes stuff is that there’s a lot of specialized items geared specifically to you and your peers. There’s a designer version of everything now, or so it seems: raps on YouTube about design “gangstas,” t-shirts talking about kerning, and hundreds and hundreds of designer in-jokes that get pushed along the internet’s tubes. I consider these posters my contribution to the monologue.
