Fifty states honored in fonts and flowers at Hutchinson Center of the Arts

Ellen Schofield and David Rogers, graphic designers, teach at Minnesota State University Mankato, and are interested in dimension illustration. Their work honoring 50 states is being exhibited through Friday, Nov. 4, at the Hutchinson Center for the Arts. “As graphic designers, most of our work had been on computers, so we wanted to do something more hand intensive,” Schofield said. Rogers has done typography, which is designing the letters for the state flowers. “We’ve matched up each state’s abbreviation and matched up their state flower. Fun series,” she explained. “David has created new letters for the abbreviations of each state.” Schofield has created sculptural illustrations. “The state flowers are sort of a hybrid, ” Schofield said during our interview. “We have a laser cutter at the school, so David designs the letters on a computer — what they will look like, all the different layers needed. Then each is sent to a laser machine, which burns paper with high-intensity laser beam and then cuts out the designs. The laser cutter is like a dumb printer, w... (Crow River Media)
