In honor of the 200th Anniversary of the Star Spangled banner we are partnering with the University of Baltimore (and AIGA Blueridge!) to host a poster competition.

Below is some inspiration from Studio Hinrichs.


Kit Hinrichs is a graphic designer and a collector of American flag iconography and memorabilia. He founded Studio Hinrichs in 2009, following 23 years as a partner of the international design firm Pentagram. He has design directed projects for the California Academy of Sciences graphic identity program, Sony Metreon Entertainment Complex identity and interior graphics, United Airlines’ Hemispheres magazine, Design Within Reach identity and catalog, and a number of others. He is co-founder and design director of @Issue: Journal of Business and Design, and has taught at the School of Visual Arts in New York, the California College of the Arts, and the Academy of Art in San Francisco. Several of his pieces are in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the Smithsonian Institution’s Cooper-Hewitt Museum of Design.

Kit will be coming to Baltimore September 15th, 2014 for the gallery opening of the poster exhibition as well as to participate as one of the judges. More details to come.

Enter today and be part of the celebration! Entry is Free!
