Four Play at Boxpark
Our big self-initiated project for 2015 is called ‘FOUR PLAY’ - a collaboration between our own design studio and a curated collective of 40 fantastic illustrators, artists and designers.
All 40 participants were given a FOUR letter word to illustrate in their own distinctive visual style using a fixed palette of FOUR spot colours. Unlimited design studio then incorporated their word into each artwork, creating a unique typographic response for each and an exciting collaborative final piece.
As prints they playfully work as both stand-alone individual artworks, interchangeable pairs or more elaborate stories. So much can be said with just one word and image, or arranged together can create interesting narratives, interpretations and juxtapositions.
Each of the 40 artworks are available to purchase as limited editions of 100. All 50 x 70cm in size, and using the four spot colours - overall an amazing collection of printed type and illustration work!
To kick off the show, we held a week-long pop up exhibition at Boxpark in Shoreditch. All in all a successful week with great feedback and a fun-filled, people-packed launch night!
Big thanks to all 40 creatives involved for their fantastic images, and our very own Patrick Morrissey of Unlimited design studio for his skilled typographic treatments.
Also thanks to our supporters - Redwell Brewery for the steamed lager refreshment, and Printoff for their print support.
