Various letterpress projects.
I got into letterpress because I’ve always been really interested in the history of design. I took the class my junior year of college and fell in love with the vintage look of the letters. I use letterpress throughout my personal brand, and I think that the nicks and scratches in the type give designs a lot of character.

Although the process for each piece is different, the process for my Up Movie poster was really intricate even though the poster is a relatively simple layout. We only used four ink colors, and this meant that we had to layer the letterpress pieces directly over their first imprint as we reinked them in a different color. This process took a lot of concentration because I needed to remember what colors were going on which letters.

In addition to learning how to work a letterpress machine and set type, I learned a lot of book binding techniques through letterpress. For the “Good versus Evil” project we used an accordian book-binding technique.
