Instagram Challenge for April 8th-14th: #letterpress

I love letterpress. I love the simple design aesthetic, the rough texture of the paper, the beautiful colors used, and the sense of three-dimensionality. In many ways, I regret not starting out with letterpress in my branding, because I’d love to use it now. But that’s ok, because I can still admire it from afar. These photos were all created with my Canon 5D Mark III and 24-70 2.8 L lens zoomed in to 70mm.

For really beautiful letterpress work, including the pieces you see here, check out my favorite letterpress designer Ilee on etsy.
