2017 Cleveland Marathon Posters

I was happy to work with the team at the Cleveland Marathon to create limited edition 3-color screen prints for their upcoming race.

As 2017 marks their 40th anniversary, the goal with this poster was to throw it back to the late ’70s. I used a photograph of Cleveland Marathon runners from that era, provided by the organizers – combined with one of my own more recent featuring the Terminal Tower, Key Center, and Huntington (old BP) Building. These photos were bitmapped to give the feel of a 1970s newspaper clipping / xerox / mimeograph and coupled with a retro font. ’70s teal ink was used with Sno-Cone blue paper to mimic the Marathon’s colors. Each print was hand printed, signed and numbered – now available for purchase here.
