the heads of state: travel posters

since i’ve got travel on the brain this morning, i had to share these beautiful new travel posters from the heads of state. based in philly, the heads of state designed a brand new series of limited edition 14×24 screenprints dedicated to eight american cities. while i’m loyal to my home town, i’ll have to say that miami, chicago and san francisco are my favorite designs in the bunch. each three to six-color serigraph is selling for $30 and is available as part of a run of 100 limited-edition prints. click here to check out all of the cities and pick up your favorite. thanks, dustin!

  5. These are fabulous! So glad you shared them. I love the Chicago one, but I checked out the site and I think I LOVE the Seattle one most! Perhaps because that’s where I’m from :)

  11. Dora says:

    Ooooo so pretty and poppy. I hope they make an awesome NC one as well :D

  12. Janice says:

    I like the bold colors.

    The Phoenix poster doesn’t remind me of Phoenix at all.

  13. Evelio says:

    gottem! Janice, you’re right “Phoenix” should say “Arizona” – Phx does not look like that, at least anymore it doesn’t.

  14. sara says:

    Love these… didn’t even see the Phoenix skyline at first. Subtle!

  15. Whitney says:

    Love those. I have been looking for some bright and fresh travel posters for my apartment!

  26. Alex Snowdon says:

    Fantastic! Love those bold, graphic prints!

  27. kim says:

    I love the colours on the Seattle one! I do hope they’ll expand to more cities, I’m a sucker for travel print and already have a fair share of ‘places I’ve never been’

  28. ld says:

  29. Lea says:

    Just bought three! I moved to SF from Arizona and grew up in NY… and they match my color scheme perfectly!

    It will be interesting to see which ones sell out first…
