Letterpress – A2 Type

Thurs 20th Oct

Since I didn’t really produce much of an outcome when we did the letterpress workshop, I went back into the letterpress studio to print more. My letterpress group was A2 Type so I had to print something that was about the company. A2 Type is a new type foundry and a lot of their fonts are really bold and innovative. I chose to write ‘A2 Type: New & Unique’ to keep it simple.

I used two different letterforms from the workshop and composed them so that the ‘A2 Type’ sat on the top, large and bold and the ‘new & unique’ placed beneath in a slightly smaller, more delicate font.

These are a lot better than my previous print and I’m glad I went back to re-print because have a lot better outcomes to present.
