Design professionals: design and print your own type-inspired poster with renowned brand type designer and printmaker Pete McCracken of Crack Press (Portland, Oregon)!
Take a day off work and away from the computer to use your hands creating type-based posters in this two day Friday/Saturday workshop with Pete McCracken. Pete has been designing, making type, and creating posters for over 25 years, including work for REI, Columbia Sportswear, Nike, Wieden+Kennedy, and serigraph print editions for artists.
Day 1: Pete will share his expertise in type creation as participants create their own camera-ready poster art 100% by hand.
