Alphabet Art

A love of the outdoors and a passion for illustration. That’s how Founder Seth Neilsen came to create My Outdoor Alphabet posters—with some help from his kids. Neilsen started sketching out alphabet prints for various sports and activities, wanting to teach his four children about being active outdoors. From those early sketches evolved these colorfully clever outdoors posters. Each design showcases the lexicon of a different outside pastime. Using every letter from A to Z, hand-drawn illustrations highlight 26 important concepts that are part of that activity—from tools and gear to terrain to situations that you often find yourself in. These educational abecedary (that’s a fancy word for alphabet) posters are printed in the USA on recycled paper. The designs are of course great for kids, but the playfully sophisticated style is perfect for any outdoor adventurer’s home or office.

    These are really cool, Seth! This will be great daily motivation for my nephews to put down the tablets and get out of the house! What inspires your designs?

    @Wallace Thanks so much! There's quite a bit of inspiration on the design side of things—everything from contemporary designers/artists like Aaron Draplin and Geoff McFetridge, to the mid-century modern designers and illustrators like Saul Bass, Robert Brownjohn, and Charley Harper. I'm also a big fan of the vintage European matchbox illustrations—some amazing work with line and shapes and colors.
