Producing the City

I was commissioned to design this poster by the Center for Place, Culture, and Politics in the City University of New York to celebrate the 80th birthday of the Marxist geographer and political theorist David Harvey. It was a great job, and you can read about the entire process in my blog post about designing the poster. In short, I built the entire idea around Harvey’s quote: “All those whose labors are engaged in producing and reproducing the city have a collective right not only to that which they produce, but also to decide what kind of urbanism is to be produced where, and how.”
