The Alabama Bicentennial Commission engaged our team to create an original series of posters honoring the people, places and events that uniquely shaped Alabama counties. For Jefferson County, the homeplace of Alabama’s largest city — Birmingham — and the hotbed of the Civil Rights Movement, it was important to represent the vast and varied history of the area.
For Jefferson County, we created original poster honoring the action-packed history of area that is home to the “Magic City” of Birmingham. An anvil engraved with iconic landmarks, revolutionary events, legendary people and places captures the area’s fiery past while two hammers symbolize the rich industrial heritage of Jefferson County.
The Jefferson County poster has quickly won its fans and become a symbol of pride. It is now used to teach 4th grade Alabama history in classrooms throughout the state.
