12 — Brew Nord Poster

This poster stood out for its deep blue paper choice and deeper blue ink choice paired with gold. The nice, textural design doesn’t hurt.

Production Method

Silkscreen

Design

Matt Erickson

Printing

Ambient Inks

11 — VIRUS Book

Great presentation for this book, using regulation tin foil that pairs greatly (yet concerningly) with the “VIRUS” title.

Production Method

Offset

Design

Fable

Printing

Kin Yiap Press

Lead Image VIRUS Book ---

10 — “Fast & Four” Skateboard Deck Invitation

Instead of phoning in an Evite for her kid’s 4-yo party, Laura duplexed little skateboards and even curved the edges. Hang ten, mom! (Wait… that’s another sport, right?)

Production Method

Silkscreen

Design

9 — Salt Lick Whiskey Barrel-Aged BBQ Sauce Package

Although the fact that this is a giant bottle of Texas BBQ plays a huge role in my attraction to this project, the copper foil stamping on black paper is equally appetizing.

8 — Lyndon & Nick’s Wedding Materials

No offense to other wedding invitations shown on FPO but the sophistication and lack of script fonts in this wedding suite gives us all the feels.

Production Method

Emboss
Engraving
Foil stamp
Letterpress

Design

Nick Adam

Printing

Artistry Engraving
Rohner Press

Lead Image Lyndon & Nick’s Wedding Materials ---

7 — Other People’s Words Book

Putting a lot of text on the cover is an old trick but the contrast here with the baby blue type and the debossed type is great. The blue stock serves as a great background for the black and white photos and the smaller sheets intermittently placed in the book keep it surprising.

Production Method

Letterpress
Offset

Design

Clémentine Tantet

Printing

6 — Andy Stewart Design Identity Materials

Sometimes all you need is a solid, fun design and 1-color letterpressing on thick paper.

Production Method

5 — “Unfolding the Saree” Zine

This year’s lists have been kind to small-run, DIY projects and this zine celebrating the Saree is a great example of making something unique without big printing budgets. Also, those tiny blue hangers? Sweet.

Production Method

Silkscreen

Design

Mira Malhotra of Studio Kohl India

Printing

William Arts, Mumbai, India

4 — Carolina Manresa Identity Materials

Perfect print concept paired with a clever logo for a dentist!

Production Method

Printing

Grafiques Trayter

3 — French Paper “Total Package” Promo

The decadent aesthetic of Charles S. Anderson Design is perfectly brought to life with a heavy dose of foil stamping across a set of six paper packages on — what else? — French Paper.

Production Method

Foil stamp
Offset

CSA Design

Printing

Franklin Press

2 — Wrong Color Subway Map

These gigantic posters pack a colorful punch with intensely dense ink coverage in eye-popping combinations.

Production Method

Offset

Design

Triboro

Printing

Lead Image Wrong Color Subway Map ---

1 — CI Studio Logo Book

The combination of paper stocks — purple, metallic shiny, and black — overlapping page sizes and simple design make this little logo book a standout self-promo.

Production Method
