Dolphin Press & Print / Scarpitta Poster for Sale at MICA School Store

Department — faculty @ 11:18 am, Friday, November 28th, 2014

Bryn Freeman ’04 [graphic design] was selected to create a limited edition print that responded to the spirit of and object in the exhibition Salvatore Scarpitta Traveler curated by Melissa Ho at the Hirshhorn Museum and Gardens in Washington, DC. Freeman’s passion for cars and eclectic design sensibilities made her a perfect choice for this special edition commemorating the Scarpitta exhibit. Her past projects include poster designs for film festivals at The Doris Duke Theatre at the Honolulu Museum of Art; promotions for events at the Creative Alliance;and design of the 192 page book Playing with Sketches for Rockport Publishing. Traveler was inspired by vintage 1- and 2-color sprint car [and motorcycle] race posters. The yellow color was taken from the paint and Monroe suspension on the Trevis car.
