I was chosen as part of a small group at Edinburgh Napier University to take part in designing limited edition letterpress posters to celebrate Robert Smails Printing Works 150th anniversary. My poster featured as part of the exhibition, 'Ink Differently' at the National Library of Scotland during the month of April 2016. This project allowed us to mix modern graphic style with old traditional printing methods in order to create a fusion between future and past.
'There is no creation without tradition.'
My poster uses this quote by Carlos Fuentes to describe that by combining old printing methods and modern design we can create a piece of significant design.
Showcased at the National Library of Scotland.
