Call For Submissions

Everyone loves a screen print, right?
We certainly do here at ImagineThat, and that’s why we have decided to run a small screen printing competition where we’re asking you to design us the artwork for us to print.
We will be selecting a number of submissions to print and sell through our online store, where all funds raised will go into the creation of future ImagineThat publications and products, helping us to kick things up a notch: and that’s where you guys come in. We’re looking for a variety of designs under any discipline to be submitted (as long as the design can be reproduced through screen printing), the more variety the better. More after the jump.

Look at this lovely laser cut letterpress type

This decorative alphabet was produced by Nigel Bents, Paul Oakley and Jonny Holmes at Chelsea College of Art & Design. Based on a downloaded Bodoni Poster font, it was designed digitally by students using Illustrator, laser cut out of 3mm plywood by Cut Laser Cut in Vauxhall and mounted on type-high block by Stef Willis in the Chelsea college workshop.

It was then printed at Graham Bignell’s New North Press in Hoxton. There they will remain; and in time, no doubt, be added to. An example of a digital start leading to an analogue finish.

Limited edition posters available for sale. More photos here.
