The Vermont Ski & Snowboard Museum’s exhibit titled Slope Style was a fun project that coupled vintage fashion, skiing and advertising. The exhibit featured a variety of ski and snowboard fashions from the 1930s to today, and was created by Poppy Gall (outdoor clothing and gear designer extraordinaire, and founder of Isis for Women.) Poppy asked that I use this fashion drawing of a woman from the late 1940s as part of the logo. I worked in color and type treatments to reflect design popular during of this era.

Exhibit Graphics
The Vermont Ski & Snowboard Museum also had their first ever nordic ski exhibit titled Kick and Glide. The design of this these exhibit graphics needed to align with their branding, i.e. use solid color, bold imagery and generous white space. A nordic skier was a must! I used lots of light blue space — which evokes skiing and Winter for me.

This was a poster for the museum’s Antique Ski Day — a fun event where participants wear vintage clothing and skis and compete in a low-key race. I loved these now nostalgic headshots of skiers from the ’60s – a reminder of less technical skiing in the not-so-distant past!

These were two more ideas for this poster:
