look at these lovely letterpress cards from local graphic designers andrea burke and dana bowers. you can see from the examples below that each of them have a unique approach to their letterpress art. their printing and design methodologies, however, are shared, as is a workspace in chicago’s lincoln square neighborhood. they’re one step closer to their dream of participating in the new york national stationery show now that they have been selected as exhibitors.
clearly there are two disparate styles here, which translates into a wider net cast for new buyers at the show. i like andrea’s sense of humor and dana’s clean illustration style. and i like the color palettes in both lines.
to offset the high costs of getting there, andrea and dana are holding an old fashioned bake sale! it will be held this saturday the 15th, at the photography studio of kipling swehla, from 12 pm – 3 pm. all proceeds from the sale will help them to achieve their goals of getting their dna letterpress off to a good start – a very worthy cause indeed.
good luck girls!
