Chili cook-off poster
In an attempt to get a majority of my work posted on this blog (eventually); today I’m sharing an older project: a poster for a departmental chili cook-off that I won an American Graphic Design award for in 2010. The photo of the chili peppers is stock that I did a little fun doodling over. Our Copy Editor Steve Barcus wrote the copy, and I mixed a few fonts from the Wild West Press, namely Ashwood Condensed and Gatlin Bold, along with Lucas de Groot’s The Mix from his Thesis typeface set for the smaller copy. The background texture came from Von Glitschka’s book Crumble Crackle Burn.
Somehow this post became a bibliography of contributing sources, all of which are well worth checking out if you’re not familiar with them. Enjoy.
