Poulin + Morris created a series of graphic icons for 7 windscreen murals which surrounded the exterior of Shea Stadium in Flushing, New York, the original home to the New York Mets baseball team.

Several approaches for the design of the windscreen murals were considered, including computer-generated images, holograms, and laser projections. The final design solution consists of 7 simplified profiles of baseball players, depicted in neon, and each measuring 90 feet high by 60 feet wide. Vibrant colors are used to reinforce and enhance movement—in the batter’s swing, the fielder’s stretch, and the runner’s gait.
