Thought And Motion Letterpress Poster

This design poetry is from Jeff Johnson and the esteemed crew at Spunk Design Machine in Minneapolis, done for the Univeristy of Minnesota. They have a keen sense of design experimentation and always seem to keep things playful. For this poster, there are only three ink colors printed but the beauty of overprinting those colors really creates some dimension in the artwork. The art work is a mix of vector and raster. You can see the detail shots of the halftone images, they are pretty course line screens. The final poster is pinhole perforated into a three parts giving the whole piece a sweet little bit of texture.
