32 New Prints! April 29 2014
Fresh off the recently successful 'Century of Ballparks' Kickstarter campaign, THIRTY81 is proud to announce the addition of 32 new prints now available!
• 'The Many Physical Dimensions of Baseball' infographic — the project that spawned THIRTY81 — is being produced thanks to great demand after being featured on Visual.ly, MLB Cut, and NESN. The poster features an annotated comparison of field and wall dimensions of all 30 Major League ballparks, revealing the unique variations among them. The poster measures 24" x 18" and will be produced using 4-color offset printing on 95# McCoy Topcote cover stock.
• The 'Century of Ballparks' poster is a 18" x 24" colorful mosaic, illustrating to scale the dimensions and shapes of the 30 current Major League Baseball fields. A custom solid green is used to highlight areas of grass or turf with a contrasting white representing infield patterns and warning track areas. Individual background colors, inspired by the home team's primary palette, enclose each field. Diagrams are labeled and organized by the year each was established over the course of 100 years, from Fenway Park (1912) to Marlins Park (2012). Printed on 95# McCoy Topcote cover stock using 5-color offset printing.
• 30 Individual Ballpark Prints share the same color palette and were designed as a companion to the 'Century of Ballparks' poster. These 12" x 18" prints are drawn to a common scale, featuring team inspired colors that enclose each field. The field name, established date, and outfield dimensions are displayed in Gotham typeface at the bottom of each. Printed on 120# McCoy Silk cover stock. Below is a sample of six designs and typographic detail:
