Mike McQuade has some beautiful design work in his portfolio. Based in Chicago Mike covers all the angles from art direction and illustration, to posters and web design. I love the fact that his work is clean and contemporary, yet he flawlessly integrates texture or hand-crafted elements.

The image posted above is from a self initiated project that aims to create a poster design for every US state. Continue reading for more about the project and some studio shots of the print run.

(from Mike McQuade) “This is an ongoing project. The idea is to make a poster for every area code in the U.S. starting with Illinois. These are hand pulled, one color serigraphs, measuring 18″×24″ on black, 100 lb. cover French Paper. Each poster is hand numbered, signed and embossed. The project also includes screen printed canvas smart phone cases.”
