This is actually a reworking of a poster we did several years ago as an afternoon diversion, but never much liked how it came out. I had been wanting to redo it and though it might be a nice opportunity to also produce a time lapse film of the lockup process for the 3rd of 3 lockups that made up the actually woodtype alphabet.
We always liked the coloring of the arrows for the Tour de Lead Graffiti 2015 / Stage 8 poster.
Jill came up with the title for what we hope will be a series of type specimen posters. It will be interesting to see where this goes and how we might handle a 72 point typeface versus the almost 7" type shown here.
In conjunction with the printing of this poster we also did a time-lapse film of us locking up the 3rd lockup along with printing a few of the posters. You can see that 5 minute film on Youtube.com by clicking here.
