Benton Park Prints Giveaway

Benton Park Prints AND The Walkup Giveaway

Being the Manhattan-centric, metropolitan girl that I am, when people say “the big city,” I always assume that they mean New York. But, alas, when in Missouri, the big city is St. Louis! Benton Park is a neighborhood in St. Louis and also happens to be home to Daniel Jones, graphic design and owner of Benton Park Prints. St. Louis is home to 7-Up, ice cream cones, iced tea, the Gateway Arch, the Delmar Loop, toasted raviolis and microbrews. See a pattern? The city seems quite proud of its food – Americans there consume more BBQ sauce per capita than anywhere else. How apropos then, that many of Benton Park Print’s creations would do well in your kitchen.

Daniel is inspired by random things all around him – he keeps an ongoing list in his iPhone of moments in his day that could be useful as a new print – there are hundreds of unfinished ideas.  The shop began when most of his jobs were for corporate websites and he felt that he was missing out on creativity. He explains, “Many of the early prints were thought up when I was driving a car to meet with clients.”

He tries to make prints that make people happy and get a little laugh.

Daniel always wants a print to look good in charcoal on a white background. If it does not look good in a basic state, than he believes it will not look good in any color. His framing advice is always to give prints a big matted area with at least two inches of molding.  He comically clarifies, “I like my prints looking like a tiny person laying in the middle of a king sized bed with white sheets.  The print needs to look comfy in its surroundings to draw a person in when looking at it.  It also helps the print, or message, pop when in this state.”
