NB Studio has created graphic artwork for the Americans exhibition opening tomorrow (Thursday) at the National Portrait Gallery in London. Designed by At Large, the exhibition is an exploration of the lives of 120 significant men and women in the history of the US including heroes, writers, musicians, artists and statesmen from George Washington to Benjamin Franklin and Audrey Hepburn. The paintings and photographs are all on loan from the National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC. NB Studio’s solution is a collage of the portraits on show and which, on second glance, forms the outline of the US. This icon is being used across all publicity material, including London Underground posters, show invitations, catalogues, leaflets, advertising and tickets. The exhibition runs until 12 January 2003 in the NPG’s Wolfson Gallery and continues in Room 41. The project was undertaken by all three NB Studio design directors, Nick Finney, Ben Stott and Alan Dye.
