A friend curated a design showcase displaying works by sixteen of Atlanta’s influential graphic designers. I wrote a press release that was distributed to media such as Atlanta’s weekly newspaper Creative Loafing, and well-known local arts blogs and outlets. I also wrote a brief summary of the show that was printed on handflyers, and appeared on the official Chromatic website.

16 GRAPHIC ARTISTS. 1 SHOWCASE.
What happens when you gather works from 16 industry designers, talent from the likes of Armchair Media, Adult Swim, Cartoon Network, Portfolio Center, People of Resource, Sons&Sons, etc., put them together in a former cotton- gin factory and toss in music, drinks, and a photobooth?
We’ll find out on October 2nd, 2010 at 8:30 PM, since this unique graphic arts showcase highlighting the talents of some of Atlanta’s most influential designers hasn’t ever been done quite like this before. With only the parameter of “color use” (and even that was lax), 16 of Atlanta’s most innovative, professional graphic artists broke free from marketing standards and art direction, pulled out all the stops, and are proud to present inventive works for a night dedicated to the celebration of design.
Participating artists include:
CHROMATIC will take place at the historic and atmospheric Rodriguez Room at the Goat Farm (1200 Foster Street, Atlanta, GA, 30318 – near Star Provisions).
