Sophistication a New Goal for Sports Graphics

Poster Star Named
Sport Artist of Year

       

In a legendary career spanning four decades, Primo Angeli has created dozens of celebratory Olympic posters.

These include the groundbreaking Atlanta Games poster in 1996 recognizing female athleticism, and the official poster for the games in Nagano, Japan in 1998, Sydney, Australia in 2000, and Salt Lake City in 2002 ‒ as well as San Francisco's unfulfilled bid for the 2012 games, and a current black-and-white “London Calling” work which represented America in a recent global USOC competition. Angeli’s achievements are getting its due this fall when his alma mater, Southern Illinois University, holds a retrospective of his work, and the U.S. Sports Academy fetes him as “2013 Sport Artist of the Year.” This fall also sees the publication by Angeli, who led Primo Angeli Design International in San Francisco for 30 years, of a book of all his posters, including the Olympic works and his 1998 World Cup classic. www.primoangeli.com
