GRAFIK180:CITYART / A series of artwork inspired by the distinctive architectural element from buildings around the world. Whether it be a pattern or shape that distinguishes these buildings, it is the first layer of visual iconic recognition. The cities in which these buildings reside in are called out by their airport code instead of their names, creating another layer of graphic distinction, akin to the visual alignment between architectural elements and buildings. The codes also function as a beacon of destination, proclaiming the cities' association with inspiring architecture. An interpretive project from Lian Ng and Jean Orlebeke, in limited edition of 180.These might be fun in a guest bedroom. Or is it too much of a reminder of the airport hassle that they just came through to visit? Thoughts?

These posters from Grafik 180:City Love are modern and reminiscent of familiar locations at the same time. The Orlando, Paris, and San Francisco posters are currently my favs, but it could also be the location.
