I have been invited to take part in a poster exhibition organised by Mortar&Pestle Studio and Adrem. The exhibition, which takes place between 24th October and 1st November 2011 will showcase thirty creatives, each exhibiting an A1 poster at the Dreamspace Gallery.
Each exhibitor has been assigned a day within September, in order to create a collaboratively designed calendar for the month. I was given Sunday the 25th, and asked to design a poster specifically for that date. In a fast paced world, individual days are often overlooked for their significance and this exhibition aims to explore each day’s relevance within our own lives.
In a design industry heavily dependent on digital printing, each exhibitor has been asked to use more traditional printing or production methods. The exhibitors have chosen to craft their posters using letterpress, screen-printing, wood blocking, hand drawing, cyanotypes, embroidery, paper-cut collage and light sensitive emulsions. The exhibition will showcase a variety of creative disciplines and mediums forming a wide range of personalised styles and approaches.
I’m really looking forward to the opening night, seeing all the posters and meeting the other exhibitors. I will post my poster design on here once the exhibition has started.
