“The Hidden Message of Jingle Bells” Poster

---
DESIGNED BY
PRINT METHOD
Letterpress by N/A
--- Best of FPO, 2010 ---

Jingle bells decoded as an infographic? Letterpressed in heart-warming hues? I feel jingly inside!

---

Good Morning/Good Night Poster

---
DESIGNED BY
PRINT METHOD
Letterpress by Dolce Press
--- Best of FPO, 2010 ---

The world would probably be a better place if more things were letterpressed in glow-in-the-dark ink. Until then, this poster can keep you company all morning and all night.

---

“Typefaces of the World” Poster

---
DESIGNED BY
PRINT METHOD
Offset by Cereus Graphics
--- Best of FPO, 2010 ---

The quick folks at Scribble on Everything scooped up this image that was making the rounds on the internet to convert it into an amazing offset poster on black paper.

---

HyperQuake 10th Anniversary Letterpress Poster

---
DESIGNED BY
PRINT METHOD
Letterpress by Defrance Printing
--- Best of FPO, 2010 ---

As far as posters of the year go, this is one of the tiniest but it packs a big punch with bold, orange typography and exemplary ornamentation in blind letterpress. It not only looks great but also feels great to the touch.

---

Something Terrifying Poster

---
DESIGNED BY
PRINT METHOD
Silkscreen by Mama’s Sauce
--- Best of FPO, 2010 ---

Another great black paper poster that will appeal to both Batman and typography fanboys. Simple. Fearsome.

---

Weather Visualization Poster

---
DESIGNED BY
PRINT METHOD
Offset by Zwaan Printmedia
--- Best of FPO, 2010 ---

Weather, data, and infographic nerds rejoice! This huge poster reproduces the 2010 weather data in Utrecht, The Netherlands.

---

AIGA 2011 Cause/Affect Poster

---
DESIGNED BY
PRINT METHOD
Offset by Hemlock Printers
Silkscreen by Various
--- Best of FPO, 2010 ---

These are true collaborative posters in more ways than one: the first blue layer was designed by Tim Belonax, then special “marks” (the hammer, the “x”, etc.) were designed by various designers, and then they all came together to silkscreen those marks on top of the previously offset printed layer.

Fauna Friends Japanimals Posters

---
DESIGNED BY
Nihonzaru: Alex Pearson
Koi: Julian Baker
Kitsune: Scott MacDonald
Tora Shiro: Andy Young
PRINT METHOD
Silkscreen by Kangaroo Press
--- Best of FPO, 2010 ---

Alex Pearson makes it into the FPO Best of the Year two times in a row with another wonderful, collaborative set of posters. Printed on red paper, this collection features mythical animals from the Far East.

---

MeWithoutYou Poster

---
DESIGNED BY
PRINT METHOD
Silkscreen by Shed Labs
--- Best of FPO, 2010 ---

This poster manages to be both joyous and lugubrious. Perhaps it’s the gloss varnish they added to the black that makes it work so well in both spectrums.

---

Henry + Co. Posters

---
DESIGNED BY
PRINT METHOD
Offset, Foil Stamping, Embossing, and Die-cut by Henry + Co.
--- Best of FPO, 2010 ---

These posters are embossed so hard and foil stamped so shiny that they could pass for a shield in 300.

---

Tom Rowe Promotional Poster

---
DESIGNED BY
PRINT METHOD
Silkscreen by Bob Eight Pop
--- Best of FPO, 2010 ---

There is no poster like a Tweed Tom poster: dense with joy and graphics and color and how-did-he-do-that?s that it’s almost annoying. This 5-color beauty comes with a subtle gradient in the back that goes from green to blue, adding some unexpected dimension.

---

Just My Type Poster

---
DESIGNED BY
PRINT METHOD
Silkscreen by Jude Landry
--- Best of FPO, 2010 ---

And, also, there is no poster like a Jude Landry poster: simple, striking, and all kinds of hangable. This poster is a scratchy rendition of his own beautifully letterspaced alphabet, “Blackzidenz.”
