I was contacted by Matthew Jacobson, who was curating a collection of designs and illustrations that were personal interpretations of the number 17. They are all included in a book that would be delivered as a gift for Emily Oberman and Bonnie Siegler of the design firm Number 17 in New York City. It was an honor to be included in such a great project amongst so many great artists I admire such as Seymour Chwast, Stefan Bucher, Chip Wass and Marian Bantjes. The book was delivered and well received and it was a pleasure to be a part.
I don't know Emily and Bonnie personally, so it was tough to find my footing at first. I chose to use a language all designers could understand and create a timeline of big events from all the years they've been in business.
