Small City Beefs: Posters by Chris Sherron

I love living in a small city (Providence) even though it's a change from years of living in large cities (London, New York, and LA) and most of our friends acted as if we were about to drop off the edge of the universe when we told them we were moving. I know that smaller cities have a lot to offer: less crowding, unique local culture, and smaller price tags. But it hasn't been easy to lure some of our big-city friends for a visit. Providence-based Chris Sherron designed a series of posters taking aim at this sometimes dismissive attitude toward smaller cities by playfully referencing hip hop culture and starting a "beef" between small cities and some of their larger, more popular counterparts…

The series of four posters ("Providence Will Kill Tokyo," "Cleveland Will Kill New York," "St. Louis Will Kill Berlin," and "Buffalo Will Kill Paris") are available on Chris' website for a mere $10 each.

What are some of your favorite under-appreciated small cities?
