About This Poster
I like the shape of New England when I see it isolated so I started with that. I wondered if 2 maps could make moose antlers which is a fairly representative New England animal. It worked as a silly visual pun so I added beer, critters and other features to flesh out the natural side of this region.
This poster design is part of A New England Brew, a collaborative event hosted by BSDS in conjunction with Backlash Beer Co. in Boston, MA. Twenty eight contributing designers were asked to interpret the theme “A New England Brew” through the medium of an 18x24-inch poster. All profits will benefit Artists for Humanity, an organization which helps under-resourced youth into paid employment in the arts.
