Rotch Library Exhibit


Department of Urban Studies and Planning Poster Designs by Sonny Oram

June 15, 2018 - September 15, 2018

This exhibit features poster designs from Sonny Oram’s work in MIT’s Department of Urban Studies and Planning. (June 2016 to present.) Oram’s posters present an eclectic graphic identity that reflects the broad scope of DUSP’s work. Drawing inspiration from good city design, which adapts to the needs of its residents rather than a one-size-fits-all approach, each poster was uniquely created for each event it advertises. Oram’s variation in design is also inspired by the vast array of studies existing at DUSP, which makes room for many schools of thought about urban planning and supports projects spearheaded by individuals throughout the department.
