I remember seeing Dan Blackman’s work a while ago. Actually, it was his Graphic USA project that caught my eye. These Chicago badge illustrations were bold and graphic. For me, they had a retro Americana, road triply, almost tribal feel to them.
At the time I first saw them, we were working on our newest identity and preparing and dreaming about our One Year trip. They really struck a chord. So I was very excited when we finally got to have brunch with Dan on our brief stop through Chicago.
No doubt you’ve seen Dan’s work around. It’s definitely made its way around the design blogs. For more fabulous eye candy, be sure to check out his site here.
