Beautiful things never get old! There is so much information today with social media that we have more chance to miss something that to see it ! Some days ago I discovered these amazing pictures from sign painter Antonio "Tj" Guzzardi workshop following an "archive" post from abduzeedo from 2014 ! Still so inspiring ! The photos are by Tatanja Ross, but the link to her work is broken... Anyway, welcome to TJ world !

Limited edition letterpress posters

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

Nick shares his work on his Instagram, and his feed is just amazing as it must be seen as a global composition of images, ordered by colors... I do screen captures as I really think it is the best way to experience it!

Kelli Anderson

Past week has been crazy, and the next one would be the same! I want to post about Kelli Anderson work since I met her in Offf Barcelona, but I only found the energy tonight, as her work is so impressive in details and technique that it could not just be a "hey, look at this project" kind of post.

The spirit in which Kelli works is important to understand her creative process. When she does a paper camera book, it is a real camera which could take pictures, with paper and all the instruction to develop the images with instant coffee !!! Here talk at Offf was even more inspiring than what I expected, and if you have time, look at her project process on her blog, or this Adobe video.
 Here comes some of her projects.
