3st in Public

Thirst is popping up across the United States this month!

On the evening of June 6th at 6:30pm, Rick Valicenti/3st and John Pobojewski/3st will showcase several projects at the Lincoln Park Apple store. They will share their creative process and talk about how they embrace and incorporate the latest technologies.

Rick will be participating in Chicago’s Design Week at two events: Creative Mornings on June 15 and Chicago Design Museum’s opening exhibition on June 11th.

At the Chicago Design Museum (, Rick’s contributed an original poster series called ‘Cool Whip’ as part of their Fresh Produced exhibit. Other contributors include Paul Sahre, Martin Venezky, and Plural.

Chicago typographer, Nick Adam, photographs the actual Thirst reference for the Eat Me poster at the Kane County Flea Market.

Dordt College in Sioux Center, Iowa is now displaying the largest collection of Thirst posters outside of the studio. David Versluis, who earlier this year joined us for his sabbatical, curated the collection, which will be on display through July 15.

Indeed, the response has been very positive!
Viewers seem to be keenly aware that this exhibition is smart and special with exceptional imagination. Each poster has high visual impact while collectively this body of work is stunning.

The Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum and the Walker Art Center co-curated the show Graphic Design—Now in Production, which explores some of the most vibrant sectors and genres of graphic design today. Intelligent Design by Rick Valicenti/3st, John Pobojewski/3st, Robb Irrgang and Gina Garza is included. The show will be on display through September 3 on Governor’s Island in NYC.

If you can’t make it to any of the above, pick up a copy of FUSE 1-20.

Launched by Neville Brody and Jon Wozencroft in 1991, FUSE established itself as the leading publication on typographic design. It’s influence continues to be known in the design community, and it now lists among it contributors some of the greatest design minds of our time, such as Peter Saville, Cornel Windlin, Ian Anderson, Matthew Carter, Paul Elliman, Tibor Kalman, and Phil Baines.

Rick’s poster Don’t Kill Pretty is documented in the set along with the font ‘Ukin’ Pretty’.
