Public Records



I designed a system for the visual communication of Public Records, a hi-fi café, bar, and sound room in Brooklyn.

The system needed to fit the wide range of artists and DJs that perform there, while still retaining a clear identity of its own. My solution was to place all vital information in the same location throughout the posters and limit the color palette to four colors—black, white, pink, and green—while leaving all else without restriction.

The resulting posters are eclectic and different, while still all clearly part of the same family.

Unsolicited. Posters made in Justin Colt and Jose Fresneda’s (The Collected Works)Type for Masters class at the School of Visual Arts’ MFA Design program.
