Steve Forney art prints and posters

Commercial artist Steve Forney's client list, it’s fair to say, is lengthy. Brands he illustrated for include beauty brand Estee Lauder, Hasbro Toys, Southwest Airlines, Coca Cola, Starbucks and posters for the Californian county of San Bernardino. Forney's speciality is creating art-deco inspired commercial art that emulates posters of the 1920s when advertising culture was getting into full swing.

Steve Forney has been creating vintage style art for over 15 years and for as long as he can remember, he's always been drawing. When he was young, Forney was so immersed in his drawings that he would ignore his mother's calls to come for dinner. This absorption in drawing has carried on throughout his life, so much so, that when he was studying at the University of California, he was often caught doodling in his notebook and hardly paid attention to his lectures. So it was amazing Forney graduated at all with a BA in Political Science in 1991!

Following his studies, Forney decided to pursue his artistic impulses and started doing freelance illustration work. Forney counts graphic designer Alex Steinwess, Italian futurist painter Fortunato Depero and the modern masters Giorgio Morandi and Picasso amongst his many influences.

Ranging from editorial work to national advertising campaigns, Steve Forney brings a passion for his craft from the initial concept to the final stages of the design. He enjoys collaborating with his clients and strives to create illustrations that exceed their expectations. Forney currently lives and works in Oakland, California.

More about framing


In the Design Studio

We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.

Colour Perfecting in the Print Room

In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.

Measuring Up

After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.

Assembling Frames in the Framing Workshop

We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.

Hand-finishing in the Framing Workshop

Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.

The Last Stop

In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.

Mounting the Prints

The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.

Laying the Glass

Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.

The Final Product

After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.

Transferring to Canvas

For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.

Finishing the Canvas Edging

As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
