Fourth Grade Goes Graphic

Fourth Grade art students studied the art of Stephen Frykholm while creating these “Summer Advertisement” posters.

Steve Frykholm has been Herman Miller’s in-house graphic designer for almost 40 years . From his first year with the furniture company, through 1989, he produced a silk screened poster each year for the company’s summer picnic—20 in all.

Seven of those posters are in the permanent collection of the MOMA.

Fourth graders were given the challenge of creating a poster that advertised their Summer memories without using words.

The requirements were to emphasize simple lines, flat colors and a “zoomed-in” focal point,
just as Frykholm uses in his graphic design.

Students used viewfinders to create the same up-close viewpoint in their work.

Here are a few of the fourth grade Summer posters inspired by Frykholm:
