Non-profit Art Institutions

Morla Design has partnered with non-profit art institutions and organizations for over 25 years creating award-winning posters and identities. We created all posters for Capp Street Project, Ann Hatch’s site-specific conceptual art venue, launched the CCAC Wattis institute poster campaign with Larry Rinder, and worked with avant-guard composer Paul Dresher on his poster campaign.

CCAC Institute: Poster

morla_design_ccac_institute_poster_01Morla Design created a series of exhibition announcements for The CCAC Institute, one of San Francisco’s newest experimental art venues. Working with extreme budget constraints, each poster incorporates letters from each show’s title to create dynamic graphics that give the shows their own unique visual voice. Applied as barricade posters, they create a dynamic presence when used in multiplicity. The experimental typographic vocabulary reflects the nature of the art shown and creates a recognizable identity for The CCAC Institute. This piece is part of the permanent collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art | SFMoMA. morla_design_ccac_institute_poster_04_spaced_out

Capp Street

morladesign_cappSt01 Capp Street Project is an experimental art venue featuring site-specific installations. Morla Design created a series of exhibition announcements incorporating typographic treatments that reference the artists’ work and reflect the experimental programming of Capp Street. Crossed out words are used as a metaphor for Jim Campbell and Marie Navarre’s “Unforeseeable Memories” installation. These pieces are in the permanent collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. morladesign_cappSt02

Paul Dresher Ensemble Poster

morla_design_paulDrecher_01Morla Design created this poster to announce two music performances by the Paul Dresher Ensemble. The challenge was to give equal importance to both events as well as reflect the experimental nature of the artists. Vellum printed on both sides was utilized to clearly communicate the two performances in an intriguing and interactive manner. This piece is part of the permanent collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art | SFMoMA.
