New poster

30 May 2010

We’ve had a list of quotes for posters for a while now, and this is one that we like. Why should art be serious, after all?

Overprinting two transparent colours to make a third one has interested us for some time, and we came across some interesting accidental examples of it when we were reprinting Tutti Frutti last year. We thought we’d see if we could make something similar happen with this, and ended up using cyan, magenta, yellow and black. The Garamond Italic was printed as a separate working, the colour mixed to match the green made by the overprinting.

We hope you like it. And we hope you’ll buy it from our poster website.
