The Whitsons live in Boston, but come from Alabama and North Carolina. As Southerners surrounded with a lack of honorifics and saccharine tea, they set out to create some reminders of home.
Fresh and creative with nary a Georgia peach in sight, the couple doesn't rely on common imagery to populate their prints. Instead, their thoughtful execution represents each state and the region with fondness. Even a lifelong New Englander like myself can appreciate the strong typography and graphic style of Old Try's posters.
