Seattle-based design studio Modern Dog's heady mix of cheeky humor and punk rock aesthetics makes them unique among design firmsand a hell of a lot of fun. Gathered here for the first time is their groundbreaking work in poster design over the past two decades. Posters for theater, events, music, social issues, and self-promotion run the gamut of approaches and attitudes, but always reflects founders Mike Strassbuger and Robynne Raye's distinctive eye. What's moreand unusual in a design monographtheir text is laugh-out-loud funny on nearly every page.
