We were kindly asked by the lovely peeps at The Designers Republic™ to contribute a piece of work for a new print project they were working on. They were producing a book celebrating the fifth birthday of super Sheffield based Evolution Print. It also coincided with the 25th birthday of TDR™.
We were asked the question "What does five mean to you?" and were told to respond visually. We were also asked to write 25 words to accompany the visual piece. That was it. Naturally we produced something Star Wars™ related, more specifically referencing Episode 5 in the series and without a doubt the best of all the films... The Empire Strikes Back™. Our 25 words were: "Episode V — THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK.
Easily the best of the series. It's also the one where Vader kills Mr. Bronson from television's Grange Hill."
Our response was featured alongside a host of other contributors such as Erik Spiekermann, Hamish Muir, Jarvis Cocker, Neville Brody, Vaughan Oliver, Vince Frost and lots of others so we were 'reyt chuffed' to be alongside such wonderful people.
Here's what Ian Anderson of TDR™ had to say about A Bunch Of Fives:
"This is a book by The Designers Republic™ for Evolution Print's 5th Birthday full of creative responses, collabs & conversations from friends, fellow travellers & co-conspirators."
Limited edition of 500™.
