A project as a present.
This postcard, Are any of these your type? is the second piece I printed with letterpress this year. The first was the TIPOSOUFFLÉ! at Familia Plómez in Madrid. This one was made in Barcelona by Grafiko in a limited-edition of 100 copies in blue color and 100 more in green, both on 240 g/m² cotton paper.
Its design is tied to many aspects of my recent activity as a lettering and type designer. All the letters you can see in this postcard are home-made, some are part of typefaces in development I will release in the future, and others are my interpretation of beautiful signs I photographed in different towns.
Recently and, as an addition to it, I designed another version of this project. I was invited by 180hilos to be part of their unique series of posters done by designers and illustrators. It consists on a series of three different posters printed in silkscreen, on a 300 g/m² Sirio Navy Blue Cardboard. The size is 30×40 cms and they have produced 25 units of each one (signed and numbered). The three posters share the same composition but have different combinations of 4 colors each.

And, finally, enjoy this video was created on the ocassion of the presentation of this posters at Offf2013. Karin du Croo from nueveojos created this wonderful movie that explains the process of its design: an A-Z alphabet done with letters inspired in letter signs, and my own alphabets as well.
The song ‘Musique for Bath’ was composed, recorded & mixed by Frank Pahl & Christophe Petchanatz.
