We want to emphasize the stability and continuity of CDA. Amid the insecurity, instability, hiring/firing, questions of income and rapid change, the CDA provides an unchanging unsurpassed standard of craftsmanship, insight and beauty of work, while the STA provides a safe haven for personal relationships.
—Bob Zeni, Chairman of Archive 11
3st's visual statement for the Society of Typographic Art's annual competition, Archive 11, was one that emphasizes the STA's connection with the Chicago Design Archive (CDA). We designed a trio of commemorative posters that feature the list of every designer inducted into the CDA, and a selection of thirty pieces representing the best of class work in the Chicago Design Archive.
