Bridgeport Arts + Cultural Council "Heroes" poster campaign
Jargon Boy Design Studio recently completed, with Connecticut’s Bridgeport Arts and Cultural Council, this series of twelve posters focusing on local heroes. From prominent figures like PT Barnum and Elias Howe to lesser known people like lighthouse keeper Kathleen Moore, the series instills a sense of pride for the citizens of Bridgeport and, most importantly, functions as an educational tool for the area’s public schools. With a funky color palette, layered visual language and a modernist sensibility, the campaign was inspired by psychedelic poster master Victor Moscoso and artist Robert Rauschenberg.
