Letterpress

We had a letterpress workshop with Matt, in which we looked at recreating the style. We where limited to one colour, each given one quote, which we then had to display in our own style, to emote meaning from the quote. The quote i got given was ‘Be stimulated by rejection’ by Bob Gill.

It was quite difficult to get the letters the right way round, so that the word would be stated correctly on the page.

Every stamp of the letters and words would appear differently as the ink was running out. With the word rejection i wanted to recreate it as if the word was barley legible but yet you could understand it, given it less ink.

Highlighted ‘Im a reject’ as a quote within a quote, think it enhances the original quote, accepting the rejection is part of the stimulation. The inner quote is in the red it stands out well agaisnt the black creating contrast.
