The Queen City Studio: BFLO

Posted by Jakub

I found this series by Rob from The Queen City Studio pretty impressive, its an ode to his hometown of Buffalo, NY, I think a project like this is perfect for a graphic designer that needs a subject to show off his ideas and skills.

You’re right, it is a good idea for a self initiated project. These ones have a really strong vintage feeling, which I really like – especially the two last ones. The soft, almost faded colors and the typography come together nicely.

Wow, what a way to start my birthday! Thanks for all the positive feedback, it’s truly an honor to be featured on the ISO50 site. Working on the series has been a great experience, it’s one of those projects I wish I had more time to contribute to. But, when a new idea comes to me it doesn’t take long for me to find the time to bring it to life.

Thanks again!

Hmm, that really is quite the brilliant idea. I also need to beef up my portfolio with some new work, finding inspiration in where we came from is a good project to work on.

As a Buffalo ex-pat with good friends who stayed and are doing good things for the city, I gotta say the rust belt cynicism wore itself threadbare far too long ago.

Daryle, just curious – is your response a positive or a negative one? Either is welcome I just can’t quite tell! I really like hearing opinions of Buffalonians (past and present).

I just randomly found you on this blog! If you don’t remember me by name, I graduated with you in BFA at Fredonia!

Glad I stumbled upon your stuff. Great work. Made my day!
