I got my Ork Brooklyn neighborhood screen print a while ago and I'm finally taking it in for framing! Here it is:
Do you guys know about Ork Posters? Ork started when 24-year-old Chicago-based graphic designer Jenny Beorkrem started searching for a neighborhood poster that wouldn't cramp her style. From the blog Brooklyn Based...
Beorkrem saw a neighborhood map she knew she could improve upon — so she designed her hometown first (Chicago) using a font (for all you design heads who care about these things) called DIN 1451 that dates back to the 1930s.Long-story short, the posters were an instant success, so Jenny quit her day job and started designing them full-time. In addition to Chicago and Brooklyn, other neighborhoods now available include Boston, Manhattan, and San Francisco.
“It’s geometric and I think that’s why it fit so well in the posters,” said Beorkrem.
It's so exciting when people find success in doing their own thing, don't you think? I do! So buy an Ork poster and support Jenny (and two non-profits—she donates 2% of sales to River Action and HEAL Africa) today!
