One of my favorite design competitions is STA’s Archive, that celebrates the work of Chicago designers and has built a wonderful local resource in its, well, archives. This year’s theme is about “measuring up”, not just to this year’s competition but to past winners. To add to the pressure 3st designed the event poster and some nerdy design trading cards around the work of some legendary Chicago designers. The printing is all offset on Mohawk’s latest Loop line and everything looks super sharp — in other words, it measures up.
