You did an amazing job! We never saw the @poppyinthewheat flyer.
Two weeks ago, Middlebury College hosted a spoken word poetry event that brought together The Strivers Row collective and Buddy Wakefield for a unique performance called “Buddy Meets the Strivers.” (Which you can read about here.)
Barbara Ofosu-Somuah cooirdinated the event and contacted me to make the posters. The Strivers Row had such beautiful portraits on their website that it was easy for me to come up with a concept focused around those photos and quotes from their poems. (Originally I did not know that Buddy Wakefield would also be preforming,)
All of the type was hand drawn and arranged in Photoshop (which made the long list of sponsors a bit of a hassle) but I really love posters with all handmade typography so it was certainly worth the extra effort.
My friend at Middlebury (who wrote the article about the event) said he overheard the poets talking about how much they loved the posters, which is the best compliment I could receive for this project!
