Beautiful New Print Celebrates New York
Alfalfa New York has released a truly stunning new print which celebrates the iconic sights and landmarks of New York City.
The creative agency has created Iconic New York Illuminated – “a shimmering Klimt-like homage to New York at night”.
Printed onto a velvety black, deep, rich, soft-touch, premium Italian paper, the iconic design uses 4 metallic inks and 2 foils to give a beautiful illuminated effect.
The artwork shines as brightly as the City itself after dark.
Designer Rafael Esquer
The print is the design work of Rafael Esquer, Creative Director and CEO at New York’s Alfalfa Studio. Esquer has lived and worked in the city for more than fifteen years, since gaining his BFA from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.
Originally from the Sonora Desert in Mexico, Esquer worked first for New York’s Radical Media before establishing Alfalfa Studio in 2004.
The designer created an Iconic New York poster in 2013, but this new print introduces additional icons, some quirky details, and the beautiful gold and silver foils that give the poster its stunning illuminated effect.
Rafael says: “Everybody loves New York. I wanted to create a deluxe, collectible souvenir that says, ‘New York loves you back – especially after dark’.”
