A modular poster design made of customized, business card-sized rectangular designs typeset with your name and contact information.

When was the last time you saw a poster, got a postcard, handed out a business card?

On a recent trip to Croatia to be a judge in a graphic design exhibition, I fell back in love with graphic design. Not the digital and interaction design that I make now...the old school, color + type + juxtaposition graphic design that you see in posters, business cards, postcards, and book covers. We have so much less graphic stuff in our lives now that we view communications on our devices...and it's not a bad thing, just different. So, with this project, I hope to make something very graphic...for you. 

The Modular Poster: Inspired by Graphic Design of the 1940s and 50s

What Makes It Yours

The design is made of many, customized rectangular units. Each rectangle uses your name and two additional pieces of information (like a phone number, email, address, or Twitter handle.) Yes, you can use it as a poster on the wall or cut it up and use them as calling cards. (The rectangles are business card size.) It's up to you...it will be your piece of graphic design. Here's a detail.

What Makes it Modular

You can choose to buy the whole poster or just a section. The images below show the poster sections. The first section is "A," the second is "B," the third is "C," and the fourth is "D." (Sorry, I can't mix or swop rectangles between the different sections.)

What else you can do
For a little more money, you can change the red color to any shade you like. Just specify the color with a hex color or a Pantone color. I'll send you a pdf to make sure it's what you had in mind. If your name or another information is really lengthy, I may have to substitute a different rectangular design, but I think that will rarely be necessary. 

Thank you for considering this project! -Barbara deWilde
