Design for Letterpress - Part 1

Okay, we're going to try something new. Something we've never seen on any blogs or letterpress sites. We're going to attempt to show and explain the letterpress design process for the Duel of Design project. NOTE: Everyone's process is different. We're going to display daily sketches and ideas until eventually we are printing and displaying the final project. This is intended to show the translation from computer, to print. I warn you now, digital files are sometimes difficult to imagine letterpress printed but in the end, I'm sure you'll love it! Here we go!

In a nutshell, we were simple asked by Geri Wolf, owner of the Style Laboratory if we'd be interested in contributing something to the event gift bags? We checked out the event online. It was obvious that it's gonna be a wicked good time. We said yes! From there, the next questions is, what's appropriate for this kind of event? Our thoughts landed at gift tags, greeting card, competition score cards, place cards, napkins, calling cards, a calendar, or coasters. From there we nailed it down to coasters (tons of fun to print and design). Most of the other pieces just seemed either too boring or super overdone recently. Our next considerations are design aesthetic, colors, packaging, and again appropriateness. To be continued...
