Press For Prints: Friday Clements Design

andrew bird

If I had actually gone into Flatstock at SXSW, I would have stopped at Frida Clements‘ booth.  I probably would have bought a few posters.  But since I banned myself from the whole exhibition (keeping myself on a budget, even though its one of the things I look forward to the most at SXSW),  I was never able to see these amazing posters in person.

Frida Clements is an independent Seattle-based Graphic Designer and Illustrator specializing in screen-printed poster art. Previously the Senior Graphic Designer for Seattle Theatre Group (Paramount, Moore & Neptune Theatres 2007-2011), she has also designed for Sasquatch! Music Festival, KEXP, Flatstock, No Depression Festival, The Vera Project, many Northwest musicians and small businesses.

Her love of screen-printed posters inspired an annual poster show dedicated to the artists performing at Sasquatch!. The exhibition ran 4 years and featured emerging and established poster designers from the Northwest and beyond.  She was named “Best Show Poster Artist” in 2010 by Seattle Weekly, has been featured as “Poster of the Week” in The Stranger, and recently included in the book 1000 Indie Posters by John Foster (Rockport) and the upcoming Gig Posters Volume II by Clay Hayes.

Check out some of her posters in her Etsy store.
