About

If you missed the Kickstarter, the Runway Collection screenprint is available at the NOMO Design Shop

The Box Set

The box set will include a 5"×7" print of each of the 30 busiest airport runway patterns in the United States, the large hubs, defined by the FAA as those airports that each account for at least one percent of total U.S. passenger enplanements. 

The Box Set includes a print of each of the following airports: ATL, BOS, BWI, CLT, DCA, DEN, DFW, DTW, EWR, FLL, HNL, IAD, IAH, JFK, LAS, LAX, LGA, MCO, MDW, MIA, MSP, ORD, PDX, PHL, PHX, SAN, SEA, SFO, SLC and TPA.

The Box Set prints will be offset-printed on thick 13-14 pt matte paper stock. 

Runway Collection Screenprint

I also want to create a large 24"×36" screenprint featuring all 30 airport runways. From A to T (ATL to TPA), in 2013 the 30 busiest US airports accounted for over 530 million enplanements. The runways are drawn to the same scale, so the difference between MDW's 5,141' runway is evident next to DEN's 16,000' runway.

The Runway Collection prints are 1-color screenprints on 100# Blacktop construction paper.

Individual Runway Screenprints

Also available are 18"×24" screenprints of the following airports: ATL, BOS, DEN, DFW, DTW, EWR, IAD, JFK, LAX, LGA, MDW, MIA, MSP, ORD, PDX, PHX, SAN, SEA and SFO.

The individual runway prints are 1-color screenprints on 100# Steel Gray paper.

Depending on the momentum of the campaign, the remaining airports will be considered for individual, 18"×24" screenprinting: BWI, CLT, DCA, FLL, HNL, IAH, LAS, MCO, MIA, PHL, SLC or TPA. Stretch goals can be set during the campaign. 

All screenprints are printed on 100# paper from the French Paper Co. in Niles, Michigan. Screen printing will be handled by VGKids in Ypsillanti, Michigan. I've worked with them on several projects like my Photo FilmGolf Course and Racetrack Series prints. Their work is impeccable. Your prints will be stamped and signed on the back, rolled and shipped in a heavy-duty kraft tube.  Final print colors will slightly vary from what's shown on screen.

Reward Levels

Need help making sense of the different pledge levels? Here's how they break down.

About Me

I'm an architect and designer with 15 years of experience crafting space and experience through architecture, print and web design. In 2010 I started my own design studio NOMO. I also recently co-started Sparse, an urban cycling accessory company based in San Francisco where I am Chief Brand Officer. We wrapped up a successful Kickstarter campaign late 2012. 

   

Shipping Notes

Screenprints will be rolled, sealed in a 2 mm polyethylene film bag, placed in a .080" thick-walled cardboard tube and shipped via the tender, loving hands of the US Postal Service. For international backers, please note delivery time will vary as your prints travel through US Customs and your local delivery service. International backers, you may have to pay additional duty fees. Contact your local customs office for details.

Risks and challenges

I've ran my own online shop, NOMO Design, since 2010. This is my third Kickstarter project.
My first, Golf Course Screen Print Series:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nomo/golf-course-screen-print-series
and second, Photo Film Screenprint Series:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nomo/photo-film-screenprint-series
both projects funded and shipped on time.

The design for the print series is complete. The packaging, offset printer and screen printer are waiting for the green "funded" light. I've accounted for their printing time. I have a solid system for packing and shipping prints. The main variable is the final number of backers and prints to be delivered. If there are too many orders for me to package and ship myself, I'll hire help (my wife and friends).
