Vaccinations Save Lives

Starshaped Press

The Design Museum of Chicago teamed up with the City to invite artists to contribute to their Protect Chicago campaign to spread the word about getting vaccinated. While they just needed digital art, I took the opportunity to create a limited edition set of posters that encompass the elements of the city, from its buildings and gardens to its neighborhoods, with a message to consider both self, family and community. As a parent, I am also aware that normal, childhood vaccinations have decreased over the past year as we’ve all been isolated at home.
The print is 14” square and is letterpress printed with both wood and metal type in 7 colors on recycled white card stock. Proceeds from each sale benefit both Heartland Alliance and Howard Brown Health, as they’re doing great work to get vaccines to marginalized populations in the city.
