Letterpress postcard for a typographic event.
Last spring I was invited to participate in the 2nd edition of TypoCamp Paris, a typographic event held in Paris on the 21, 22 and 23 of June 2013.
The requirement for my participation was to design a two-colour letterpress 21 x 21cm collector postcard with a piece of lettering on it. It was part of a set of six postcards designed by different designers and printed in a limited series of 100 units at the “Ateliers Asdourian et Gustave Gernez”. I had the honour to participate with great artists such as Jessica Hische, Ken Barber, Tyrsa (Alexis Taieb), Reagan Ray and Julien Prez. Thanks to Jean Francois Porchez and Jennifer Leblond for everything!
I took my calligraphic practise as a starting point and created this lettering that works as an ambivalent sign.
Here you can see a video about how it was printed.
