Hackwith Design House – Makers Alongside
July 16, 2014 § Leave a comment
It has always been a MADE BY SOHN goal to eventually create a letterpressed print for sale. I am happy to announce that goal has finally come to fruition. This “Remember Your True North” print was designed and made exclusively for the Makers Alongside project with Hackwith Design House and is now available for sale here. When Lisa and her team at HDH approached me to collaborate with them on making this print, it was an obvious “yes.” Not only am I honored to see my work alongside their beautifully crafted pieces, but I’ve genuinely enjoyed working with them at every step.
Staying in step with their business model of only creating 25 of each piece, there are also only 25 of these posters in existence, each personally numbered and signed by yours truly. Both the original lettering and brush stroke pattern were done with sumi ink, which was then brought to life with letterpress by the lovely Chelsey Nichol of Type A Press. I admittedly have a soft spot for texture on cardstock and Chelsey was able to perfectly incorporate both.
Hackwith Design House also wrote a sweet little bio on MADE BY SOHN on their blog, which can be found here. Thanks so much again to everyone involved who made this project possible!
P.S. For good measure in case you missed it, you can purchase the print for $70 on Hackwith Design House’s shop and find more details about it here.
