    DescriptionThere is no other design think tank quite like Seattle-based studio Modern Dog. Their heady mix of intuitive design, cheeky humour, and punk-rock aesthetics has made them unique among design firms, and a hell of a lot of fun. Gathered together here for the first time is Modern Dog's groundbreaking body of work in poster design over the past two decades. From posters for worthy causes to those for theatre, music, arts and cultural events, and - often most entertaining of all - self-promotional pieces, the work in this volume runs the gamut but always reflects founders Mike Strassburger and Robynne Raye's distinctive eye. Interviews with Mike and Robynne by design luminaries James Victore and Rick Valincenti and an essay by critic Steven Heller illuminate the working methods of these creators of iconic and irreverent fin-de-siecle design.
