Cool & Deadly

Graphics from baggies on display as part of the Heroin Stamp Project, an exhibition at White Box Gallery in New York City focused on the branding of heroin.

Curators Liza Vadnai and Pedro Mateu-Gelabert picked up hundreds of baggies all over the city for the show. It's interesting to see how systems of naming and branding develop... especially with something like this, which is essentially marketing the line between life and death.

Graphic identities have a way of developing organically, no matter what the subject matter.
