Poster, Bicycle, Public, 2012
This is a poster. It was designed by Paula Scher and made for (as the client) PUBLIC. It is dated 2012 and we acquired it in 2013. Its medium is digital offset lithograph on paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.
This poster was designed as a promotion for PUBLIC, a bicycle and gear company based in San Francisco. Paula Scher was among a group of 27 international designers invited to “interpret the concept of ‘public’ with a vision to reclaim urban streets, sidewalks and spaces for walking, biking and other social purposes.” In her interpretation, Scher morphs typographic form to suggest the shape of a bicycle in vivid orange.
