My good friend Camille (who used to intern here and is on my speed-dial of go-to people when I’m in a bind) came in this week to print signs for Occupy Wall Street.
Protest event info can be found here. (brave the rain if you must!)
Cam’s posters were inspired by: Marie Antoinette. Cake. Revolution. (she’s too awesome)
And was listening to this song while printing: http://youtu.be/auzfTPp4moA (and she’s also a badass)
I have a huge love for making stencils—they’re quick, easy, affordable and have that distinct handmade look. I find them really useful for one-off signage, perfect for events. A couple of weeks ago we made these for a client who just got married in Tulum, Mexico. The ladies over at AE looped me into the project and they will eventually post pics on their blog. In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to share our process in making their wedding-day signage.
This was a joint effort between me and the girls: I designed them, Lauren cut the stencils out (I think this was her last task before leaving the shop—thanks Lauren!), and Camille spray painted.
Here’s a look at one of the stencils.
