Graphis dedicates itself to showcasing the best and brightest that design has to offer, particularly new entries that demonstrate a penchant for quality and precision. Bryan SatalinoClifton Fordham, and Abby Guido of Temple University and Cassie Hester of Mississippi State University are the newest Graphis talent finds, showcasing an excellently refreshing approach to poster design, branding, and typography.
Abby Guido has partnered with her student Sarah Demers to showcase Tastebuds (ABOVE), a campaign that showcases a branding campaign for a meal kit that cooks with cannabis. From a cookbook and to cannabis-infused butter to honey vials and terpenes, the project has meticulously designed every aspect of the packaging, utilizing “a lively typographic pattern paired with a subtle geometric pattern inspired by the two main chemical compounds found in cannabis.” It is tasteful, subdued, and approachable, all while remaining elegantly sharp.

On top of her work on Tastebuds, Abby Guido worked with Bryan Satalino and Clifton Fordham to help student Julia Sweison to present PhillyRow Poster (ABOVE RIGHT). The whimsical posters showcases the real estate and blueprint details of the historic row house buildings of Philadelphia. The playful design patterns and muted color schemes present a 21st century approach to the building design that nearly 70 percent of all Philadelphians live in. 
Mississippi State University‘s Cassie Hester oversaw student Kate Darden Webb’s project NPR : Hidden Brain’s “Slanguage” Episode 57 Promo Podcast Poster (ABOVE LEFT), whose “goal was to create a poster that would intrigue viewers to listen to our podcasts.” The punk aesthetic, along with it’s angled typography, and water wave inspiration shines as an example of a young artist who is willing to step out of their comfort zone and relish in the unknown.
