Communication Art's 2011 Typography Annual Features Agency Work for Lincoln Community Playhouse

Omaha, Neb. - Communication Arts is featuring a poster design from Bailey Lauerman in the publication's first Typography Annual.

Bailey Lauerman's work to promote Lincoln Community Playhouse's production of "A Christmas Story" has been selected from more than 2,100 entries from around the world as one Communication Arts 179 winning projects.

Bailey Lauerman's "A Christmas Story" poster draws its inspiration from the play's main theme - young Ralphie's wish for a Red Rider BB gun from Santa. The typography appears as if Ralphie himself shot BBs to spell out the title.
