A SERIES OF FOUR PATCHES CELEBRATING THE CITIES TOPO DESIGNS CALLS HOME
I was born in Denver and grew up in Bailey, a small mountain town located about 45 minutes outside of the city. My patch celebrates the proximity of Denver to Colorado's amazing outdoors, a proximity that I grew up in. Sans Texas, Denver is the biggest urban and cultural hub between the Mississippi and the west coast. It's incredible that this major city is only minutes away from some of the most beautiful wilderness areas in the world. The patch has elements of the outdoors as well as the city's culture (Red Rocks, the Denver Art Museum, the park system etc.). Denver gets 300+ days of sunshine a year so the sun is also a focal point in the patch. I also created a custom typeface that is inspired by Topo's design aesthetic.
