Design After Dark Fund, 2010.1

In 2002 Jason Munn joined the surge of innovative poster production taking place across the country when he founded his one-man design studio, The Small Stakes. Influenced by the independent music scene, skateboard graphics, and posters of the 1940s and 1950s, Munn is a graphic artist who responds to simplicity and clarity. His hand-printed, limited-edition posters exhibit minimal typography and an exemplary use of negative space—the unoccupied but significant spaces between the images and type. While his techniques vary from piece to piece, there is a strong sense of continuity in his work.
