Douglas Rouse Postcards

  • Client: The Modbo

Services: Print Design

 

The Modbo, an art space in downtown Colorado Springs, CO asked us to create promotional postcards for a solo exhibition of local artist and muralist Douglas Rouse.
This project presented a unique design challenge not unusual among artists: Douglas was working on his art right up until the show, which meant that we couldn’t photograph the art in time to get postcards printed for the show. We really wanted to showcase Douglas’ style on the post card, so we came up with a solution: we requested photos of a collage-style piece that Douglas had recently completed and used these images as a texture behind large letters of the artist’s name. This technique allowed us to create give potential patrons of his show an idea of what they would see without having to be specific to the exact work.
