Graphic Garages

1/26/2012 Uncategorized

Parking garages, environmental graphics, and color theory are three longtime Utile obsessions.

One recent project combines all three and came to my attention via the always-interesting Co.Design site. In Sydney, Australia, the graphic design/artist duo of Craig&Karl designed an immersive mural for an underground parking garage.


The Craig&Karl work brings to mind the Dutch artists Haas&Hahn and their exhibition at Storefront—by far the best designed exhibition at Storefront that I’ve seen.


Bright color palette, smartly applied = joyful spaces. It’s both not that complicated a formula, and surprisingly hard to pull off.
