Memphis (small/signed)

$ 75.00

Greeting card company, 2014. Memphis, Tennessee.

Carson signed a small amount of "test run" posters this summer. They're priced according to their smaller size and different paper quality. Once they run out we'll only be offering the larger printed sizes, which is the way the artist prefers the images to be printed.  The paper size is: 12.5" x 16.125". The image size is: 10.5" x 14.125".  

"Here, I’m experimenting with layers of hand lettering for a talk at a greeting card company. You have a lot of freedom when it’s your own talk, about graphic design, at a greeting card company that uses a lot of hand lettering, and you’re not being paid. I feel the amount of freedom given in any design work is often directly correlated with the fee. Little or no fee should equal total, or near total freedom in design. And that freedom can, or does often become less as the fee scale moves up. Regardless, as the creator of the work, you have to always do work that you're happy with." -dc
