We’re struggling to believe that Chloe Scheffe is still a student: her work is incredibly mature, nuanced and smart. She’s studying at Rhode Island School of Design, which in part explains her brilliant output, and her site is a testament to the quality and breadth of her output. Two very different but equally accomplished projects that caught our eye are some brilliant monochrome posters for a show at the college, which need little explanation, and some signage, which needs a little more.
Chloe created signage informed by the 1936 Charlie Chaplin film Modern Times, articulating quotes and sentiments from Chaplin’s characters, a downtrodden soul working as a cog in an unforgiving factory. While it’s a strange concept, Chloe’s exploration of it deftly avoids kookiness for the sake of kookiness, instead staying subtle and sharp.
