Unisource Paper Show Poster
Amy McCarter (BFA 1984)
Unisource, a distributer of fine paper, sponsors a regional paper show every year for mills and the design community to connect in Chicago. Each year they ask a different Chicago designer to create the branding for the show. The poster for the 23rd annual show featured the fine art image of photographer Chuck Shotwell, who sees unsuspecting beauty in the most mundane of thingsÑ shredded paper. I selected one of his prints as a backdrop for the modern poster and invitation for the show.
This work is featured as part of Future Former: An Exhibition of Alumni Work. This exhibition honors the creative work and careers of all Stamps School alumni, creates an aspirational connection between generations of U-M artists and designers and current Stamps students, and inspires reflection during the university's Bicentennial year.
