Description:

The sheer effrontery of the weather - art deco styled warm and cold fronts in black and white. The sheer effrontery of the weather - art deco styled warm and cold fronts in black and white.

In the old days, when meteorologists were real meteorologists, presenters didn't fancy themselves as celebrities and the public were expected to value education; weather charts used to have isobars and the front lines of air masses, ie "fronts", marked on them instead of sun smiley stickers and the like. Though they do sometimes show radar tracking of rain (and forecasted simulations of this) on modern maps.

This design is a bidirectional, art deco styled, black and white rendition of rather compressed symbols for warm and cold fronts. In the current orientation, the cold fronts are approaching from the poles while the warm fronts are equatorial. However, I think people would want to avoid air masses with that many conjoined twin tornados or hurricanes inside them. It's really just decoration.

This one prints clearly down to a 4 inch repeat from its original 12 inch size. So it can easily be available at any size in between on request - or in the other orientation. It would also be possible to recolour it to something other than black and white. You can even ask for a combination of several designs together.

su_g says: Great concept and so well executed! Loved your note too, especially the punning "sheer effrontery of the weather" - I think that would be a great name for it.

sef

sef says: I seem to be slightly stuck in black and white mode after retreating to it for the summer of print-profile change. It's not going to appeal to the cutesy bunch. It's more of a bold statement decorator kind of thing.
