  • A two-colour poster designed for the documentary movie 'Typeface'.
     
    The brief, requiring a mixture of modern and old technology to reflect topics discussed within the movie, led to my use of letterpress lead type for 'typeface', with the rest of the text being typeset digitally.
     
    The poster also features an hourglass shape, a collograph print from a cardboard cutout.
    The hourglass is to represent the idea of time, and moreso timelessness, to show that although letterpress is old technology, it can still be used today and mixed with modern technology to create design.
