This year marks the 75th Anniversary of Print Magazine. To celebrate, Print asked 75 of today’s most talented creatives to design the word “print” in their own style, with no direction beyond basic specs. Each day for the next 25 days, Print Magazine will share one Anniversary poster.
Today they’re giving away Jennifer Morla’s creation. Enter to win on Instagram. Be sure to include #25DaysofPrint and #PRINT75 for a chance to win this poster!

We’re happy to announce our Iran poster is included in Graphis’ new Social & Political Protest Posters publication. Morla was one of a select number of international designers and artists asked to create a poster in response to the Iranian Green Revolution, the freedom of speech protests which ensued after the outcome of the 2009 elections. Morla elevated the issue by depicting a woman’s mouth graphically stitched shut to reference the silencing of women and emphasize the skewed election results, which had a significant impact on the lives of women.

SFMOMA collects historical and contemporary works of architecture, furniture, product, and graphic design. Morla realized that the A+D collection needed more visibility within the design community as well as to those less familiar with the scope of their collection. The video was produced pro-bono and can also be viewed on the SFMOMA website.
We are honored to have Jennifer’s typographic felt screens included in the New West Coast Design 2 exhibition at the Museum of Craft and Design. The exhibition opens October 26 through January 5, 2014.
We are pleased to announce that Morla Design’s Public Bikes Poster has been acquired as part of the Permanent Collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The Public Bikes Poster joins over 50 Jennifer Morla works that have been acquired by SFMoMA.
Our Public Bikes Poster has been selected to appear in Communication Arts, Design Annual 54, the September/October 2013. It’s an honor to be chosen as one of only 189 winning projects from 4,636 global entries. This will be the 35th issue of Communication Arts in which Morla Design has been featured.The poster is available for purchase at Public Bikes.
Clorox, the packaged goods company best known for their bleach products, retained Morla Design to create a commemorative book to celebrate their 100th anniversary. Our approach was to have the book embody, quite literally, their iconic bottle. The vacuum formed cover was created out of a bas relief die, which was formed in collaboration with the Clorox engineering staff to insure accuracy. Researching their extensive archives and collaborating with their copywriter, we designed a 200 page book that chronicles the history of the company through images, quotes, letters and text.
As a member of the The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, Jennifer Morla was once again invited to judge the Webby Awards for 2013. The Webby Awards is the Internet’s most respected symbol of success. This year, the Annual Webby Awards received 11,000 entries from all 50 states and over 60 countries worldwide. Webby Awards are awarded in over 100 categories.
The winners can be viewed here.
Rob Forbes, founder of Public Bikes, called on Jennifer as a key partner in identifying ways to engage the design community with his (very beautifully) designed bicycles. Together they developed the concept of a poster series announcing the launch of Public Works, a public forum which draws attention to critical issues of public space and the livability of our cities.
Morla Design has had an exciting season. We’re the prime design partner of Williams-Sonoma, Inc. for its new lifestyle brand Mark and Graham, which launched online on November 8. Mark and Graham offers timeless gifts and elegant accessories on which a customer can make their mark with the application of unique monograms and fonts. Jennifer collaborated at the brand’s inception to design, produce, and create the retail website, catalogs, brandcopy, naming consultation, packaging, blog, and emails; virtually every consumer touchpoint. Additionally, Morla curated and designed over 50 monograms for application on Mark and Graham’s product assortment.
