Invitation to exhibition at Moss, detail, designer unknown, 2007
Remember back in the late 1980s, when Minneapolis was a hotbed of graphic creative energy? Back when brochures were tied together with straw braid and twigs? As a counterpoint to the scrappy xerox fragmentations coming out of New York, or the pretty joyousness of work from San Francisco, Minnesota was making a play for the next big thing: the North Woods look
Hark! What do I receive in my mail last week but this invitation to the newest, hippest thing: an exhibition at Moss
of Jasper Morrison's Crate Series
, and Richard Woods and Sebastian Wrong's Wrongwoods
. Wood That We Could
.Young Guns poster, detail, design by Jennifer Lew & WSDIA, 2007
Then, continuing to sort the mail, there's the newest poster from the Art Director's Club by Jennifer Lew & WSDIA
| WeShouldDoItAll for the their Young Guns event. It's in furry moose type!
Could the North Woods look be back so soon?
