“Build It Up to Burn It Down” | Cassie Hester

Two typographic explorations by Assistant Professor Cassie Hester were accepted into Conkling Gallery’s international juried show,  “Project Passion.”

The show, which was on display in Mankato, Minn., from Feb. 16 through March 4, featured work from all over the country as well as London.  According to its website, “Project Passion” is an exhibition celebrating the self-initiated work of graphic designers everywhere.

Hester had two projects included in the show:
1. A series of three branded (burned with custom-made brands) posters.
2. “Pleasure Is A Worthy Investment,” a typographic piece wherein letterforms were applied to coins and placed on railroad tracks, resulting in smashed and distorted letterforms.

Jurors for the show were Kate Bingaman-Burt, Mikey Burton and Phil Jones.
