Artist: Anderson Design Group Subject: Illustration Style: Contemporary Product Type: Black Frame, Black Mat, Archival Paper, Acrylic Made in USA This ready to hang, matted framed art piece features an illustration of Chicago. Anderson Design Group, Inc. founder Joel Anderson graduated from Ringling School of Art & Design in 1986. He was recruited straight from college to work as a staff illustrator and designer at Carden & Cherry Advertising in Nashville, TN. While at C & C, Joel won an Emmy Award for his work on a CBS show. Joel worked at C & C for 7 years, learning the art & science of advertising (and how to talk like Ernest.) In 1993, Joel and his friend David Thomas founded Anderson Thomas Design, Inc. The firm focused on CD package design at first, and quickly grew into a diverse print & web design company with a client list that included Universal Studios, DreamWorks Pictures, Golden Books, Thomas Nelson and more. In 2007, the partners decided to pursue different interests, so Joel reorganized the design firm as Anderson Design Group, Inc., narrowing the studios focus to specialize in illustrative design, branding, and product development. An 8x10 giclee print under acrylic in an 11x14 black frame. Giclee (jee-clay) is an advanced printmaking process for creating museum quality fine art reproductions. The piece is printed on high quality, archival paper that is textured. A clear acrylic facing is added to protect the print. The piece is fully assembled by professional framers and comes ready to hang. The black mat allows the image to really stand out, making it a great addition to any space.
Like all the Trademark Fine Art products, this one does not disappoint. It's more expensive than other brands, but what you get is a good solid all around hardware .
