In the October issue of HOW Magazine, the 2008 Self Promotion Annual, you’ll find a project created by a huge team of Colorado creatives that turns up on page 103.
The guide to Denver, developed for the 2007 AIGA National Design Conference, features cover art by artist/illustrator Jason Thielke. His illustration is cut into eight pieces that come together to form a single Colorado-themed image. To help designers from across the country experience Denver’s greatest food, sights, bars and hangouts, Colorado designers suggested hundreds of their best-loved places. Their submissions were placed on a giant map and a team of creatives divided Denver into the ten hottest intersections, each serving as the heart of a neighborhood covered in the book. Each neighborhood was then given a couple of pages of listings and was prefaced by a unique design created especially for that neighborhood by one local design firm or freelancer (which is why the credits are so long). Cheers to those who created something we can all be proud representing our collective industry here in Colorado.
