We were excited when AIGA Philadelphia asked us to design and letterpress print a postcard to promote the screening of the documentary "Typeface," by Justine Nagan, hosted by Cabrini College and the Bryn Mawr Film Institute. Here is a short summary of the focus of the film, taken from the AIGA Philadelphia website:
Nowadays, contemporary design is very much a digital process. Come and see what life was like when type was made of wood and you could not change the point size with the click of a mouse. This film focuses on the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum and how it is the juncture of modern design and traditional technique. Click here to view the trailer.
Our very own Vanessa Kreckel (owner and creative director of Two Paperdolls) will join Ray Nichols & Jill Cypher from Lead Grafitti and Kseniya Thomas from Thomas-Printers after the film for a panel discussion.
