Retropress is a new local printing studio that specialises in letterpress. When you visit their offices you may catch their fabulous letterpress printing machines in action, a chance to watch living history! Experts in their field, it was a fantastic opportunity to work with them on their branding. One thing led to another and we also developed signage for their studio and a customised wordpress website. I have also had the opportunity to work on some of their letterpress projects, such an awesome experience as designing for letterpress has it’s own unique requirements.
Kirsten and Andrew wanted to portray a sophisticated look. Although they love all things retro, vintage and the Beatles, they are serious about what they do, they have the professional experience, and always produce work of an exceptional standard.
Their logo worked beautifully as the elegant inline version, and the more compact and bold round version. Having alternative logos is something I cannot recommend highly enough. The round version works so well as a watermark on photography, even within Instagram. It also translated perfectly as signage.
Wouldn’t it be fantastic to be able to letterpress print your own business cards? The quality is just second to none.
A customised wordpress website was the next step. Easy to update and maintain yourself, easily customisable, wordpress websites are a fantastic way to get yourself out there online.
