The Icy Ins-and-Outs of Rocky Mountain NP (by Mike Baker)

The Icy Ins-and-Outs of Rocky Mountain NP (by Mike Baker)

Rocky Mountain National Park, surrounded by three National Forests and one Wilderness Area, fully deserves its designation as one of North America's 29 World Biosphere Reserves. It is certainly one of the country’s premier National Parks as well. Only a few hours from Denver, it’s accessible via Boulder and the Peak to Peak Highway through Nederland/Ward. If you happen to find yourself in Estes Park, RMNP is just to the southwest, making for tempting shots of the park's interior before even entering the gates! After orienting one's self at the Beaver Meadows Visitor Center, it's easy to access some of the best...

Behind the Scenes at the ADG Print Shop...

At Anderson Design Group, we have always been involved in producing the posters we illustrate. When we started creating 18"x24" posters in 2004, all of our printing was done on offset printers. We would produce 500 to 1,000 prints of each new design and hope they would sell out. (14 years later, we still have some of those old prints laying around!) Eventually, digital printing came along, allowing us to do shorter runs of 10-20 posters whenever we came up with a new design. We would store them in our archive cave and pull them off the shelf each time someone placed an order. After we had...

A Chicago Christmas (by Mike Baker)

Whichever moniker you prefer – The City of Big Shoulders, The Windy City, or The City That Works – and whatever draws you here – architecture, food, sports, performing arts, museums, or shopping – Chicago is one of the most iconic cities in America. Though most choose to visit during more welcoming weather, Chicago is a great way to experience Christmas. A classic itinerary for enjoying the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of the city during Christmas begins with a walk along Michigan Avenue to take in the Magnificent Mile. Beginning at the north end of the storied shopping district,...

Glory & Gratitude in Shenandoah National Park (by Mike Baker)

Glory & Gratitude in Shenandoah National Park (by Mike Baker)

"The Shenandoah you see today is a complex mixture of human history and natural forces–the result of the life and times of the nation that owns it," reads a display at The Byrd Visitor Center in Shenandoah National Park. When one visits Shenandoah National Park, experiences its beauty, and learns how it came to be, it's hard not to be deeply grateful for such a place. The park's solitude and serenity, existing in such close proximity to our nation's capitol, did not happen by accident. Shenandoah as we know it today is the result of men and women who sacrificed their time,...

Best of the 'Fest in Munich (by Mike Baker)

Best of the 'Fest in Munich (by Mike Baker)

The fall is a special time for those who enjoy the fruits of the harvest, and the celebration of the harvest of barley and hops reaches its full expression in Bavaria’s Oktoberfest, which is held in Munich in late September and early October each year. Originating from a wedding celebration in 1810, the festival has become synonymous with Bavaria’s culture, which holds to several traditions still celebrated today in the form of dress, food, flag, and of course – beer! The ubiquitous garb of lederhosen & dirndl can be seen on most Bavarian streets from Munich to Schwangau and Schliersee...
