Employees Must Wash Hands (2009)

More than just an exquisite example of typographic transcendence, this artisan execution works as both homage to Max Miedinger and Eduard Hoffmann while offering frank appraisal of a puritanical hypocrisy that oppressively voices salubriousness while taking little responsibility beyond symbolic placard. The visual urgency of the language combined with rudimentary iconography bespeaks the contradiction in circumstance between those who serve and those who are often recipient. The execution, screen print on cellulose base, makes for a memorable visual experience.
