i think i waited all of 5 minutes to order ork design‘s brooklyn poster after reading lisa congdon‘s post about them on the d*s guest blog. and now jenny at ork has released her san francisco and manhattan posters. they’re only $22 each and nearly impossible to resist. click here to check them out and shop online.

[stay tuned for a fantastic sneak peek at 12:30!]

  1. Cool typography + maps = fabulous!

    website is sort of tough to navigate…

  3. Katya says:

    I got my Brooklyn poster pretty much immediately as well, I love this idea! Not only is the typography great but it’s a really useful piece. For me Form + Function are the basics of any good design concept.

  4. Steven says:

    Obviously a fan of the work of Paula Scher including not only the typography but also the maps.

    My first thought too was of Paula Scher. We have one of her screen prints, which is beyond stunning.

    Boston ones are in, too. I was one person who wrote requesting one. And I will get one. But the colors just don’t say Boston to me. If the red and white one were reversed…if there were a green and white one…

  7. Dana says:

    Yeah, it took me about 2 seconds to purchase the San Francisco one. Although she left out some of the smaller neighborhoods!

  8. Alison says:

    I just purchased the Chicago one, but was hoping for some suggestions from you as to go about mounting it/hanging it…?

  9. Kelly Robson says:

    I love the look of these! So graphic, and unique. They are great. But… where is the LA map??!!! I would have purchased one for everyone in the office… i think i will email her requesting a Los Angeles version… :)

    Thanks Jody for link to paula scher website. Ive not heard of her before (I am not American if that explains that!) Just gorgeous work and I also love these ork design posters. Mapping is an artform in itself – add typography and you get WOW factor!

  11. susan says:

    man i love these.

  12. Meredith says:

    I am in LOVE with ORK – thank you so much for turning me on to this fantastic series! I don’t know if I have the resolve to wait for the reprint of the Boston “red” – I may just have to order the blue and brown right away (to match my much beloved and missed JP Pond and sky…)

  13. ryko says:

    sold out? sold out?

  14. sp says:

    boo they’re already out of the SF ones

  15. m. heart says:

    oh my, i just ordered the manhattan poster and CAN’T WAIT to see it! a little christmas present to myself! thanks for the tip.
    ps: i agree with jamie – their website is a little confusing.

  16. Emily says:

    Was about to place my order and then . . . I want it NOW. I will stop at Frameworks on 5th ave on the way home. And no shipping fee!

    Does anyone know if this version is by Ork? I love it, think I might need it, but I see no multicoloured map on the website =(
