Our buddy Chrissie turned us on Ork Posters recently by telling us she purchased one as a Christmas gift for a mutual friend. We forgot to be mad that she wasn’t buying one for us when we fell in love with the poster featured on the Ork Posters website.
“Ork Posters was born when I (Chicago-based designer Jenny Beorkrem) embarked on a search for a neighborhood poster that fit my taste for good design and typography, simplicity, and originality. My hunt came up empty. As a result, I designed the original Chicago poster in the summer of 2007 for myself.”
We love the look and style of Ms. Beorkrem’s work. She has captured a great look for some of our favorite cities, including Chicago, New York and our hometown, Boston. The mix of color options is fantastic and the possibilities on how to displace these very affordable works of art are endless. They make a great gift for folks who love these cities and nice reminder of your own favorite places.
I can’t wait to see what the artist does next. May I humbly suggest… London?
