20TH-CENTURY GRAPHIC POSTERS
During the mid Twentieth-Century, screen printed posters became a popular method of advertising. The artists who created those prints employed bold colors in simple graphic illustrations that were designed to capture attention. Scenic Hwys posters are reminiscent of these simple, attractive designs.
POSTERS FOR THE PEOPLE
Printmaking made it possible for fine artists in the 1920s through the 1940s to produce high-quality art that was accessible to the people. Through modern printing processes, we are also able to create thoughtful designs that are affordable for everyone. This is a fundamental ideal we maintain at Scenic Hwys so our art can be available to you.
RECREATING THE VIEW
Creating art at Scenic Hwys includes researching the subject thoroughly. We endeavor to visit every place, take reference photos and collect historic views from the scenic drives in the parks. Each design is custom created to capture the unique atmosphere, history and feeling of a park.
FROM CONCEPT TO CREATION
Every design at Scenic Hwys is hand drawn before using technology to set up the art for printing. This keeps the illustrations original and more consistent with the hand created art of the past. Even the typography is often created from scratch to specifically capture the exclusive features of the parks.
