The workshop pulled through! Four days filled with conversations around type and design, delicious meals and lots of printing. We tried out a creative writing exercise to generate content and built on that. The texts are partly poetic but mainly non-sensical. The finished product a pamphlet that opens to a poster, or as Claudio described it: the travel poster. It was a nice project to be part of and I am grateful to everyone that helped make it possible!
Claudio Madella from Nove Punti visited Ahvaland to escape the Italian heat and more importantly print a improvised and enjoyable run of posters! Inking every other print, add a colour, change a colour, keep it rolling! Quote by Jack London. Print available at Viktor
Working with Linda at local craft&design store Viktor.

Banners for Våga, a summer show organised by the Åland crafts association. The theme translates to something like Courage. The banners carry messages promoting small acts of courage that make life a little bit better. Transparent ink on rice paper makes the letters almost see through. Show is open until 31 August 2016 at Eckerö Post- och tullhus
Ålands craft association asked me to design and print posters by hand for their summer show. (More images to come)
