The art of design and poster-making is one to be cherished. speaks with some exceptional designers and artists about their work.

Anne Benjamin is an illustrator, designer and printmaker from Chicago, Illinois. After earning a degree in graphic design from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, Anne learned letterpress, screen-printing, and other print methods through the vibrant Chicago printmaking community. From film posters to stationery design to editorial illustration, her design sense is broad and playful, drawing from the art deco, art nouveau, and pop art movements, classic children’s book illustrations and vintage animation. She’s done work for the Washington Post, Random House, Mondo, Disney, Cartoon Network, Paramount and Highlights Magazine.

“My inspiration for the Sharon Van Etten poster is from one of her songs about moving to the city for someone and leaving the city because of the same person… fleeting love and heartbreak. Something I used to think about more in my twenties. I used brush/pen and ink and finished the piece digitally. The final poster is screen printed.” Anne Benjamin
