Mile Posts is another podcast series from The Dirtbag Diaries. Each episode chronicles a road trip through the American west, following bikers, hikers, and climbers. Instead of focusing on the National Parks, the stories explore the spaces in between.
Starting with a story about where to get the best milkshake in Utah, Mile Posts explores the hidden gems that are at the entrances to National Parks, Strange Roadside Attractions, and that you don’t need an El Cap Vista to have a great time.
For the design, I referenced vintage travel posters. I wanted to be able to one day silkscreen these designs, so I limited myself to four colors and used overlays, halftones, and block color to create illustrations that would work well for silkscreen. These bright and optimistic pieces showcase the best parts of a road trip through the American west.
