National Infantry Museum
posted: June 30, 2009
It was an honor to work on a project for The National Infantry Museum in Ft. Benning Georgia. The new museum tells the story of America’s ground soldiers from the colonial period to the present day, and had their Grand Opening on June 19. The exhibit design and museum planning firm, Christopher Chadbourne & Associates asked me to design six posters that would be used as large entry graphics for each of the main galleries.  The idea was to give the pieces a twentieth century war poster vibe that would set the tone for each segment of the story, and would work well with the wealth of information and artifacts in the museum.  These images required a serious level of research to be sure that the details were correct.

Holy Smokes! What a great gig. You must have had a blast doing these. My favorite is the World At War poster. Your designs and art is so seamless and bold.

Amazing looking posters. I really like the amount of detail you show without loosing the overall power of the design. The cold war poster looks really nice in the photo. But I liked the slanted type better, worked so well with his shoulders.
