“Amerikan Made Prints was started by the husband and wife team of Keith and Jenn Bowman. Keith creates all the designs, which are usually inspired by growing up in the 1970s and frequently falling down stairs as a child. Jenn is responsible for expertly mixing paint pallets for the posters and quality control.”
Their most recent print celebrates the realities of being a graphic designer:
The dream of a graphic designer is to create meaningful designs that communicate on a visual, intellectual and emotional level. It is the joy of being creative and having someone pay you to do it. But the reality of that dream is that it often comes with the heavy price on the creative soul. There are endless meetings, client revisions, committee-mandated direction, project managers who are frustrated art directors, long hours and often little recognition. These are the daily and universal struggles of a graphic designer and this is my loving tribute to those in the design trenches. May the creative concept never be forgotten and the good fight always be fought.
If you are a graphic designer then this poster is for you, or if you have a friend or loved one that is a graphic designer this would be a great gift! Perfect for office, cubicle or home studio, show your solidarity!
