Lettering for a letterpress postcard
Last spring was invited to participate in the 2nd edition of TypoCamp Paris, a typographic event that happened in Paris along the 21, 22 and 23 of June 2013.
The requirement for my participation was to design a two colors letterpress collector 21 x 21cm postcard with a piece of lettering on it. It was part of a set of 6 postcards, designed by different designers, and printed in a limited series of 100 units at the “Ateliers Asdourian et Gustave Gernez”. I had the honour to be there with great artists like Jessica Hische, Ken Barber, Tyrsa (Alexis Taieb), Reagan Ray and Julien Prez.
I took my calligraphic practise as a starting point and did this lettering, that can work as an ambivalent sign.
