AIGA is the professional association for design. On behalf of designers of all stripes, AIGA works to promote design as a whole, highlighting the fact that designers serve critical roles as communicators, educators and innovators in culture and the marketplace.
To celebrate an annual paper show in Chicago, I created a set of three art prints that would highlight the creativity of printing and paper, and serve as an AIGA Chicago marketing piece. Each print plays on the theme of unique voices coming together. Each waveform is a visual representation of unlikely vocal pairings: Neil Armstrong's "one small step for man" combined with Lady Gaga’s "Let's Dance," Ronald Reagan's “tear down this wall!” speech combined with “Wonderwall” from Oasis. Printed on colored paper stocks with white inks, the soundwaves yielded beautiful patterns and challenged audiences to add their own voices to the conversation.
