About Post Projects
Post Projects is a Vancouver based graphic art and design studio that began with the partnership of Alex Nelson and Beau House. We currently work with a network of local and international specialists on creative projects that include identity & branding, print media, and interactive development.
"It could be better" is an oft-repeated phrase in the Post Projects studio. We understand the commercial value of good creative ideas and see great potential for development in today’s visual landscape. We operate with a flexible, open process and appreciate working with people that are as focused on craftsmanship as we are.
Platform Gallery: Intersections
"This poster was commissioned by our friends at Working Format for Intersections, their second poster exhibition at the Platform Gallery.
From Working Format: Hollywood & Vine. Haight & Ashbury. Portage & Main. All great cities have intersections that are recognizable outside of their limits. Often these intersections conjure memories of historical and cultural significance, or are the scene for a unique civic attribute. Intersections will celebrate the unique experiences of seven of Vancouver’s best known intersections, through visual expressions of identity, character and the unique experience of specific places.”
Platform Gallery: By Any Other Name
"In late summer 2011, our friends at Working Format invited Post-Projects’ founding partner Alex Nelson to contribute to their poster exhibit entitled By Any Other Name. Each participant was assigned a pseudonym for the city of Vancouver, which was to be used as a key element in their design. From Working Format’s brief:
'Like many other cities, Vancouver’s diverse, multicultural background has given way to the creation of several alternate names. These names — given in admiration, as matter-of-fact descriptors, or in jest — observe the many facets of our local industry, culture and geography. Bestowed by both residents and visitors, they suggest the multitude of histories that collectively define Vancouver.'”
Pro Am: Art and Culture on the Internet
"Pro-Am is a three day conference about internet art practice, bringing together a range of thinkers and practitioners to explore the implications of the changing role of artists as ‘users’ online."
"A limited edition, screen printed poster for a performance by LCD Soundsystem at Braham Park in Leeds. Part of a submission to an event promotion and merchandise production company."
The XX poster
"A limited edition, screen printed poster for a performance by The XX at Place des Arts in Montreal. Part of a submission to an event promotion and merchandise production company. The geometric shapes surrounding the XX in this poster were derived from studies created by Ivan Kliun in 1917.”
