Posted by Scott

File this one under "Things I’d never seen until now but somehow influenced everything I’ve ever done". I suddenly want to move to Massachusetts and work at MIT. This is the sort of design that makes me lament the fact I did not study design in school.  How could I have gone all these years practicing design and never been aware of such an amazing talent? Sadly Casey passed away in 1992.

Creator: Casey, Jacqueline S
Title: Three exhibitions
Description: 1 poster : col. ; 78 cm. x 53 cm
Via: Rit Library

"Jacqueline Casey worked as a graphic designer for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology during those years and the posters promote activities and events on campus. In 1992, the MIT Museum donated the posters to RIT Library, RIT, in accordance with Ms. Casey’s wishes."

Design is alive and well in Prague. There seems to be a very strong street poster scene there and unlike in San Francisco, the posters are actually well designed. I am not sure if this is a function of the fact that most designers in California are busy at agencies doing web design or that Prague just happens to produce great print designers. Whatever the case may be, it was great to be able to walk around and observe my favorite design medium in it’s natural habitat: pasted up on walls and poles, wet, decaying, torn, and looking magnificent. The great part is that no one seems to be taking down older posters so in some places the posters were stacked almost two inches thick. Some of the front layers would be torn away exposing layer after layer of old posters beneath, amazing stuff. 

After going though all the shots from Prague I realized how many I had to posters so I decided to split the post off into two parts. I will be posting the other shots from Prague tomorrow.
