Printing

Premier Press

Local designers, photographers and illustrators collaborated to make this collection of “good stuff”, which showcases the printing capabilities of Portland’s Premier Press. Projects like this look like a lot of fun, though the project management side must get harry at times. This cooperative effort resulted in a spirited collection of self promotional items that can be used as a holiday present, or a bonus gift all year round.

Project Description

In collaboration with Portland-based printer Premier Press, I pulled together a group of local designers, illustrators and photographers to showcase some of Premier's processes and papers in a fun, collaborative way. We came up with the theme "Good Stuff," and a packaging system, 2013 calendar, double-sided wrapping paper and a 20-by-14-foot wall banner were created. Contributors include Nishat Akhtar, Thomas Bradley, Kate Bingaman-Burt, Will Bryant, Ben Clark, Jordan Domont, Nicole Lavelle, Tom O'Toole, Aaron Rayburn, Michael Spoljaric, Ryan Unruh and Everett Vangsnes. Photography by Ryan Unruh, with photo assistance by Matthew Jones.

Production Lesson(s)

Working with the good people at Premier Press was amazing and I learned more in the last couple months about production process than I've learned in a long time. Besides the technical processes, I'd say the biggest takeaway was the understanding the sheer amount of facilitation, planning and organization involved in pulling off such an ambitious print project. ”
