Christmas by colour is a not for profit exploration into the colours that shape our christmas. Raw design studio set up this collaborative project to identify which colours people really associate with christmas. They've now produced an A1 poster limited to 500 copies and A2 wrapping paper sheets. It seems either my 'Parker pen set blue' or 'Ebay yellow' made it through to the poster, not sure which. All profits willl be donated to CALM.
I've just finished 3 new screenprints. "Get set go' which is brand new. 'Relax and move to the country' a smaller version of which I used in a mailer and '4 colour monster' which is an rework of the 3 colour version I did some time ago. It makes a bit more sense in 4 colours with the full CMYK. These will be up in my shop in the next couple of weeks, along with a second edition of the previously sold out "They quickly ran...' book.
The first in a series of exhibitions featuring the work posted on the design blog It's Nice That in it's original format.
