ICON: 50 Stunning New Works by DKNG Studios Inspired by Pop Culture

Every great film has one. A signature which can represent the entire movie in one image that also stands the test of time. Dan Kuhlken and Nathan Goldman of DKNG Studios have harnessed these visual identities into a carefully crafted body of 50 new designs called “ICON”, their first ever solo show held which opened on June 14 in Los Angeles at Gallery 1988 West.




“We’re excited to announce a new series of work that’s been a few years in the making. On June 14, 2014, we opened our first ever solo show in Los Angeles at Gallery 1988 West. ICON is comprised of fifty 12” x 12” screen printed representations of iconic objects from some of our favorite films and tv shows. Each icon is a four color screen print with an edition size of 100 prints.” – DKNG Studios

These icons are well executed with DKNG Studios’ signature style, a combination of bright colors and geometric shapes. In addition to the pure volume of man hours that went into this project, I have huge respect as a designer for their ability to convey a lot of information in a visually simplistic way. We highly recommend visiting DKNG Studios’ “ICON” microsite that includes all 50 pieces and has information on how to order prints. Scroll down and check out 10 of our favorite designs from this collection.
