Custom Poster: Family Names
A unique hand printed poster using the names of your family. Each letter is handcut from Lino. These letters are placed onto a template, rolled with water-based inks and then hand printed onto quality printmaking paper. The irregularities in the application of colour and small marks on the final printed poster are not flaws but are characteristic of this printmaking technique, and add to the individuality of the piece.
Please communicate what colours are desired and what names you require. A maximum of 48 letters can be used so shortened first names or nicknames may be required.
This poster’s aesthetic is inspired by the typography and graphic design of the Bauhaus. The Bauhaus was a very influential design school in Germany between the two World Wars. The proportions of this poster are based on the Golden Ratio.
