seattle artists marianne sao and deborah crump worked in the graphic design and marketing industries separately for quite some time before they decided to combine their skills and creative vision. they’ve recently released their limited edition black and white griffonage series of 11″ x 17″ prints, which showcase manipulated typography and tiny thoughtful quotations. the elegant results land somewhere between graffiti and calligraphy, and are charming, bold and engaging.

griffonage means a type of illegible scrawl, but the message looks very clear to me.

so does the talent.

purchase these pieces and see the rest of the series right here.

    hi sosser,

    the concept is very modern to me but when i see the font i think of mozart and opera and dangerous liaisons. it’s a great combination, and i love what they’ve done too!

    thanks for stopping by!
