Limited edition letterpress posters

mrcup letterpressposters 01
 
Following the success of the letterpress calendar, I wanted to create a set of limited edition posters. As for the calendar, the concept is to create a typographic illustration based on an inspirational sentence about design or creativity.
This was made possible only as I collaborate with Jean-Christophe, the man behind Studio Pression. Since we met in 2013, a strong creative relation has begun: his passion and knowledge or the letterpress printing process push me above my creative skills. When I create to visual for this posters, I was not sure how much details could be printed and how it will look like at the end. The result is above my expectation and printed on 350 g cotton paper, the relief is impressive and the feeling of looking at your creation printed in letterpress is unique! The sound of this beast is amazing...
We set up 2 editions: black printing on 350 g white paper, and silver printing on 350 g black paper. Each design is limited to 100 prints, all hand signed. They are now available at www.mrcup-shop.com

I am back from Off Festival, my 3td time there and always the same feeling: super inspired! As last year I was invited by Adobe France, who do the things well: putting all these creatives in the same hotel, bus and restaurants can only bring some great ideas! I will talk about that later. Let starts with Vasava. We were invited there to visit their amazing studio. I could not shoot really decent pictures because we were 50 peoples visiting, but I want to found a way to share the experience! I found them on google map, so here come some screen captures!
 
I already present their great book they design for the Offf festival 2 years ago.
