Whitney Museum: Buckminster Fuller Symposium
Client—Whitney Museum of American Art
Production—Circle Press, Stellar Printing
Poster, 25 by 16 inches
Program, 11 by 15 inches
Thumb developed an event announcement and program for the Buckminster Fuller Symposium, held in association with the exhibition Buckminster Fuller: Starting With the Universe at the Museum. The poster transposes an iconic Bucky Fuller image using a variety of triangulated patterns. Since were able to pull a lot of variety out of one color ink we printed the poster in two lots, one in orange, and one in blue.
The event program acts as both a document of the proceedings and as a place for note-taking for the attendee. With the Whitney, we developed a program that could be read as an interleaved pamphlet, but could also be taken apart to be used as a series of posters featuring works from and about Buckminster Fuller.
