What happens when you look into the graphic design response to two economic booms – the cattle boom of 1873 and the real estate boom of 2016? The result is Cashcow Oblique – A Typographic Survey of Economic Opportunity 1873 & 2016. The design outcomes between these two periods of economic frenzy are uncannily similar.
Researched and designed throughout 2017, this banded super-sized poster was distributed for free across Melbourne bookshops and cafés. It is the third in the oblique series, following Utopia Oblique and Orbit Oblique.
