Modern Dog: 20 Years of Poster Art

Seattle-based design studio Modern Dog's heady mix of cheeky humor and punk rock aesthetics makes them unique among design firmsand a hell of a lot of fun. Gathered here for the first time is their groundbreaking work in poster design over the past two decades. Posters for theater, events, music, social issues, and self-promotion run the gamut of approaches and attitudes, but always reflects founders Mike Strassbuger and Robynne Raye's distinctive eye. What's moreand unusual in a design monographtheir text is laugh-out-loud funny on nearly every page. Interviews with Mike and Robynne by design luminaries James Victore and Rick Valicenti and an essay by critic Steven Heller illuminate the working methods of these creators of iconic and irreverent fin-de-sicle design.

Because they make great work without kowtowing to design trends, or even "good taste." Because they create work to support causes, making design a platform for advocacy and dissent. Because they are not afraid to stir up trouble. Because they are unafraid to make fun of their profession and themselves. Because they are prolific and hilarious.
