Love it or hate it, America is a big story on this little planet! Graphic designers know that its non-stop show-time flicks out a special pop we can’t stop watching. In our two-part coverage of this extravaganza we’ll try to indicate the quality of vigor attaching to American life and how it has become a gold mine for graphic artists.

We begin with a vignette showing offshore resources from which Americans were not slow to consult, in the process of obviating their Puritan beginnings. A chic vehicle in the distance and an earthy performance in the forefront set in relief the poetic imperatives having become a must for a long time.

That caution is not a particularly popular virtue goes without saying. The designer is having a ball and is clearly inspired to capture the spirit of risk and its mysteries which speak to Americans in special ways.

Energy and its centrifugal poetry pervades the land! Does Fortune trump that wild poetry? (An Italian designer has been brought onboard, pleased to be recruited into a craziness he finds just right!)

Mindful of the infinity infusing the everyday.

“Spirit of Progress,” on behalf of commerce. Spirit of progress on behalf of something else, which drives the artistry to delicious heights.
