Whittlesey & Conklin

1965  |  Wood

 

Whittlesey & Conklin treated the storefronts at Washington Plaza as a form of public art. Enlarged versions of wares sold by the stores or representing the businesses were applied to the exterior, a mid-twentieth century interpretation of an old signage tradition: toothbrush, pills, eating utensils, straws, pole by former barber shop etc. The New York-based graphic design firm, Chermayeff & Geismar, was responsible for the graphics.
