Mark Gonyea — Vermont, USA

One To One Hundred is as unconventional as it is restrained and systematic, the basic concept being simply to create something unique by combining graphic design and sequential numbers. The first poster in the series, Shapes, starts with a single black square for the opening panel and then divides it into two triangles for the second, three columns for the third and so on until reaching a 100 different shapes.

Graphic designers have often embraced the alphabet but tend to pay less attention to numbers, which still mostly find expression as Arabic numerals. However, the project "One To One Hundred" by illustrator Mark Gonyea tries to get under the surface of the numbers we have historically taken for granted by rendering them beautifully and innovatively.
