Just experimenting with the letterpress and a nonuniform type layout (which was difficult). Used an old table-top platen press.
@ Kutztown University’s own Letterpress work room. August 2014.
Hi, I’m Arren, a design-geek. I’ve been a design student for a while now. I thought I should finally blog about my work and designs I love.
I also love Tumblr! So I said to myself, “Why not just do it in tumblr?” Then BAM, I made one!
I hope you guys like, reblog, or message me! I’d love to chat about designs, typography, letterpress, etc!Ps. I know my blog name is weird, but I came up with the phrase when I learned how to letterpress this summer.
Follow my design blog! #frenchxpressllamas
I like the style of this illustrated type, by student, Tim Paza May, in Brazil. Although the theme is Paris, I’m picking up some Arts and Crafts influences in the style (the pinwheels, patterns and colours).
Created as part of a vector illustration course where students were asked to pick a word and work around its theme. Quite appropriate colours as Europe moves into September and summer begins to end.

Ya’ll seriously need to check Gabriel Picolo out, he is AMAZING and all of his sketches are incredible
- student: can i borrow a pencil
- teacher: i don't know, CAN you?
- student: yes, also colloquial irregularities occur frequently in any language and since you and the rest of our present company understood my intended meaning, being particular about the distinctions between "can" and "may" is purely pedantic and arguably pretentious
