Coltsville NHP Poster

  • Save

This is a poster created for the early-stages National Historical Park in Hartford, CT. It is the building that formerly held Colt's manufacturing operations. It looks like a typical brick industrial building, but is topped with a blue star-covered "onion dome" which makes it very, very unique architecturally.

For this poster I wanted to keep it abstract but focus on the blue dome and broader shapes & patterns to define the space. It used the iconic unigrid typesetting for the header, only I removed the typical black bar so it felt more integrated.

The park has no visitor center or storefront, so this for now will be used primarily at public meetings and other panning events.
