Here are the best print projects from July to December of 2013. We will be back with our regular programming on January 6, 2014

Also: Part 1, Jan – Jun


12 — Dobrotti Stationery

I love resourceful DIY projects that make the final product look like it was more expensively produced. This one where a white circle is applied with spray paint and a stencil and then finished off with a colorful logo stamp looks like a hundred bucks (or more).

11 — Andina Capital Management Identity

This is business sexy at its best. The copper foil application on moody gray paper give this set of materials a highly sophisticated look with an edge to it.

Production Method

Engraving
Foil stamp
Offset

10 — Artcrank STL Poster

A very fun and resourceful use of laser-cutting to mimic the shapes of bicycle wheel spokes punctuated with a set of background colored papers to customize your own print.

Production Method

9 — Master Conclusion Book Design

In the same realm as number 10 above, this small run of books uses brightly colored covers to offset a thick laser-cut plank of chipboard with some extra bold typography. Finished with fancy binding adds to a piece full of nice contrasts.

Production Method

8 — Law Office of Matthew Messina Identity

Some commenters complained that this wasn’t completely appropriate for a lawyer but we all agreed that the elaborate, ornate typography and the letterpress printing were perfectly appropriate for being awesome.

Note to self: Time to try rainbow foil on black paper stock — Russian constructivist typography optional.

6 — Bandito Design Co. Business Card

By “smushing it real good” as Ryan explains, this card looks as if white puffy material has been glued on black paper stock but it’s actually black ink letterpressed on white paper creating the effect of an embossed card.

5 — Sappi Ideas that Matter 2013 Call for Entries

Big, silver, and bright as a flamingo’s behind, this poster was quite impressive when seen in person. With that much silver ink on each poster you could probably take it to a pawn shop and cash it.

Production Method

4 — 10 × 10 Booklet

Conceptually- and typographically-sound, this dual-spine book makes for a genuinely interactive piece.

Production Method

3 — Balladyna: Brochure by YoStudio for Polish Theatre in Poznan

Exposed binding, how do I love thee? Despite being a now common technique, here the red ink and typography on the signatures takes it up a notch. The inside spreads in 2-color are also exceptionally engaging.

Production Method

Offset

2 — “Let There Be Lights” Gruppo Cordenon Promo

Kevin Cantrell’s typographic stylings — also seen above in the lawyer identity — were perfectly suited for this paper promotion using the Moondream paper where a foil plate is pressed against it making the indentation translucent to light.

Production Method

Hot stamp

1 — AIGA Houston Presents Ben Barry Posters

My top project of the second half of the year involved a few of my favorite things: actual woodblock typography, letterpress, bright neon colors, and some DIY manual labor. The finished product has a very memorable, raw, layered look that changes from poster to poster with the imprimatur of a good, ol’ fashioned assembly line.
