Press Kit

This is a Press kit. It was designed by Bill Bonnell and made for WilliWear Ltd..

This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Vignelli Center for Design Studies as part of Willi Smith: Street Couture.

Its medium is offset lithograph on coated paper. It is a part of the department.


Bill Bonnell’s graphics embraced playful interaction. Each colorful geometric shape in this press release presents details about Smith’s collection and collaborators. The unusual coated papers add further interest to the forms, which could be arranged in the clear plastic sleeve to create a variety of visual combinations.

There are restrictions for re-using this image. For more information, visit the Smithsonian’s Terms of Use page.
