Maker's statement

I was commissioned by the Crafts Council to make a typographic poster announcing the publication of their education manifest. I used bold typography to create an impactful and iconic poster. The main fours of the poster is a call to action, encouraging then return to craft and underling the importance of making work by hand in education. My practise focuses on analogue printing methods particularly letterpress and screen print.
