Hi, my name is Devin, I'm a graphic artist in California.

I'm looking to make a series of typographic portraits based on popular icons from history!

The posters will feature a portrait of the individual comprised of their quotes and musings that shaped their lives. The second poster in the series is Nikola Tesla...have a look:

Each poster will be 18" by 24" printed on heavy stock with a nice satin finish which really helps show off the detail of the artwork.

I'm really happy with how this poster turned out and I'd love to make more...but rather than me just choosing what individuals to use, I want to design the posters YOU want to see!

So I have placed a poll on my website in hopes that you will participate and vote to see what individuals from history I will make the posters out of. ...and, hey! If you think I'm missing someone on that list, feel free to leave a comment and I will add them to the poll.

Some of the other people I've identified are:

  • William Shakespeare
  • Nikola Tesla 
  • Thomas Edison 
  • Amelia Earhart
  • Alan Turing
  • Mark Twain
  • Howard Hughes
  • Marie Curie
  • Abraham Lincoln 
  • Guy Fawkes
  • Charles Darwin
  • George Washington
  • Issac Newton
Update! VOTING ENDS THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 14!!

Tell me who we should use for the posters, click here!

I'm really looking forward to building out this series of fun posters, thank you so much for stopping by...!

-Devin
