2 Notebook Project Preview

September 7, 2010 — 10:00 am

The Design Ignites Change Notebook Project is set to launch on Wednesday, September 8th (tomorrow!). Since you’ll be seeing my notebooks very soon (along with those that the other letterpress printers have created) I thought I’d reveal photos of the entire process as well as details of the finished piece.

To see the photos of my process and finished notebooks, check out my flickr.

Be sure to head over to the Felt & Wire Shop on Wednesday when all the notebooks are up for sale. I’m excited to finally see what everyone has
been working on!

0 IU Exhibit at Hamilton

September 2, 2010 — 2:25 pm

Professor Paul Brown from Indiana University has provided the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum with many samples of letterpress work created by
IU students. On display until October 15th, the exhibit selections include a few of my broadsides that I printed during Paul Brown’s letterpress class at IU. Below are images of my prints that are currently on display at Hamilton.

This broadside was designed and printed to encourage voting registration while visually incorporating the idea of printing registration.

The above pair of broadsides were designed based on two different phobias: hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia which is the fear of long words and chromophobia which is the fear of color.

Photos of the exhibit can be seen onĀ Hamilton’s Facebook page.
