Mercedes Benz Poster by Kimmy Design

In pairing the Mercedes Benz ‘Gullwing’ 300 SL Coop with Art Deco graphic design, the curves and lines of the car are really brought forth. The aesthetic for the time period was to celebrate the journey from one place to another rather than using it as simply a mode of transportation. The adventure and splendor of the traveling experience was highlighted in most Art Deco graphic pieces. To stay true to this, the Coop in the poster seems to be flying off the page, showcasing the gullwing doors and matching the time period in style and action.

Day 23 of the 30 Day Character Design Challenge: Create a character whose design combines the aesthetics of the last three movies/TV shows you watched. 

The character I created has the color scheme and looks of Kimmy Schmidt (I re-watched The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. A good show!). She is wearing a big dress from the 1860s (based off of The King and I) and has a bow and arrows (Disney’s Robin Hood). All together, an interesting combination of movies/show I watched.

Contextual alternatives give each letter 4 different character styles, all cycling through each other to ensure that no two letters ever show up together. There is also a custom set of small caps, each with 4 style variations as well.

Stylistic alternatives give an extra hand-drawn flourish, loop and slight variation, also with 4 different styles per letter. Discretionary ligatures pertain to both regular all caps Lunchbox as well as stylistic alternatives.

Included are also a set of swashes that also have four style variations to both the regular and stylistic alternatives, as well as lowercase letters with ascenders and descenders.

All of these options are available in Light, Regular and Bold.

All of Shel Silverstein books of poems were my absolutely favorites as a kid. This typography quote poster was created in admiration of his words. I tried to bring his language and poetry to life with each quirky letter and type setting. By using typefaces I created (Lunchbox & Lunchbox Slab) I was able to customize areas to fit the words. 

The color and texture in the prints are inspired by a combination of watercolor textures and silk screen printing. 

Poster has been printed at 1440 dpi on 90 lbs Studio Watercolor Paper. Available in various sizes. On sale at Etsy!
