Meet Jason Strong

Minneapolis, Minnesota USA

I am a Designer/Executive Creative Director at Latitude. I also draw and paint at my home studio when I’m not working, hanging with the fam, riding bikes or on other outdoor adventures. My son, Saunder, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on August 10th, 2015. He is a champion of pain and is thankfully progressing positively. For every poster sold from this edition, $30 will go to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society on behalf of Saunder.

Back Story

Seuss, Calder & Oldenburg

ARTCRANK has really pushed me to develop a story to work from. This drawing is inspired by Dr. Seuss, Alexander Calder’s mobiles and Claes Oldenburg. Geometric graphic design is fascinating and I set up a few simple rules to follow throughout this piece. Mostly, I wanted a dynamic, refined, energetic visual story. The Cranky Pedaler may or may not be my alter ego.

Small Town Bike Love

I grew up in the country in a small town called Almelund, Minnesota— population 125. The only way to get around was by bicycle. My siblings, friends and I were always tweaking, customizing and trying new things with junk parts. I think this has had a lasting impact on me both in my never-ending interest in bikes, but also expressing myself through creativity and craft.

Letterpress FTW

Letterpress seemed like a great fit considering all of the linework. It was fun being on press with Ben and the gang at Studio on Fire. They really understand and appreciate every detail. The background color is subtle while the overprint of silver is crisp with a tasty amount of punch on the paper. You can view the file build and print process here:
