    Bake Designs have put together something quite special with their 2013 spring/Summer range. Taking influences from Isaac Newton, Archimedes and of course Roy Lichenstien, the range is sure to appeal to the design conscious streetwear consumer. The fantastic look book has been expertly photographed by renowned photographer Hayley Louisa Brown, and the entire range was screen printed here at White Duck using waterbased inks.

    These beautiful prints by Dan Mumford are the first installment in Dark City Gallery's exciting poster series: The Best of British Cinema. 

    Printed as a large 24" x 36" film poster, and also a smaller 18" x 24" art print, all three variants were lovingly screen printed in 6 colours with a crisp varnish overlaying the black.  Absolutely incredible prints, and also some of the most impressive work ofDan Mumford's that we've had the pleasure to screen print. 

    Keep an eye on the Dark City Gallery shop as the Best of British Cinema posters are revealed; and take it from us ~ there are some jaw-droppingly beautiful editions following hot on the heels of Wickerman. 

  4. Alkaline Trio (4).jpg

    This is the first time we've had the opportunity to work with super-illustrator Sam Dunn, but we're sure glad that we have. Take a look at the awesome Alkaline Trio poster that we worked on together!

    Printed as two colours - dark red & black - onlo bright red 270gsm Colorplan, and in an edition of 150. 

    Thanks, Sam, for the awesome artwork!  And the Alkaline Trio are currently touring the UK.

    Go see!  Go buy!

  5. Shinsx3.jpg

    Oh Yeah!

    I could go on and on about how much we loved printing these poster for The Shins, but let's just leave it at this:

    WE LOVED PRINTING THESE POSTERS FOR THE SHINS!

    It's not often enough that you get to print more than one gig poster for a band on tour, so it's a real pleasure to print a whole set. Three posters in total, for dates in London, Paris & Berlin respectively.  All dates to promote the excellent new album Port Of Morrow.  

    London & Paris were three colour, and Berlin was 2 colour.  All 18" x 24" on Mohark Superfine, and in editions of 100.

    So great!

     

  6. Azari & Iii.jpg

    We were pretty happy to print thise poster for The Cure.  Their Reflections Tour went off, and these posters were for the final dates.

    Quite a challenging print, this one, but we were super happy with how it came out.  A2 in size, in an edition of 500, and only printed with three colours.  Perhaps surprisingly is that we printed the purple last, and not the black.  This allowed us to extend the purple right back, so that where is was against paper it was bangingly bright, and where is was over the black - ie over the halftone in the The Cure banner and in the intricate line-work that covers the rest of the poster - we got a second purple tone completely.

    This print is actually quite beautiful, from both an aesthetic and technical point of view. 

  7. Timba Montage.jpg

  16. Do-Montage.jpg

    Nice prints for the wonderful Do Lectures gang over in Cardigan, South-West Wales. This is the second poster edition they have produced, the first having been made by letter-press.  Ours, of course, is all about the screen print.  It's a two colour print of a design by Andy Smith.  The edition is printed on a 100% recycled stock called Colorset by the marvellous Fenner Paper, in a weight of 120gsm.  Finished down to A1 in size.  Edition of 150. If you haven't heard of the Do Lectures, then it's worth checking out what they're up to. Not just because you can buy some delicious prints, but also because they run some jolly pro-active events of the mind.

  17. Plike.1.jpg

    This print really was something of a pleasure to produce, mainly because of the demanding print techniques required and extraordinary stock.

    Produced for designer Sam Lambert for a recent tour by musician & sound artist Tim Hecker, this edition was printed onto black 330gsm Plike stock (which feels like leather and marks if you look at it funny) in three colours.

    First down was a solid matte black, followed by a cobweb of star constellations in varnish, then finished with a robust metallic silver. 

    The finished edition was super subtle, with much of the varnish and matte black disappearing in some lights, but when looked at from other angles, the print became ultra deep. The photographs do a surprisingly good job of showing this print off, but I'm telling you now that it's a corker beyond all previous reckoning.

    This is our design for the sixth FLOODIT live screen print and music event held at the Nottingham Contemporary.

  21. Marmite-1.jpg

    A couple of weeks ago, for SunHouse Creative we had the great pleasure in screen printing this mind blowing edition of 150, A1, 2 colour (black and process yellow) lovelies on 330gsm Acid Free Natralis stock. The illustration and design is by the hugely talented Chris Malbon.

    The edition has since been for sale at the Marmite Pop Up Shop in London, which by all acounts has been a huge sucsess.

    "Marmite's is the best example of a pop-up shop" - The Times

    Hats off to the guys at SunHouse, who I believe put the whole thing together in just 4 weeks!

    I bloody love the stuff myself.

  22. VNA.Montage.jpg

    To celebrate the launch of issue 13, the guys at VNA (Britain's foremost independent Street Art Magazine) wanted to do something special.

    Eine, both issue 13's featured artist and Moniker Art Fair contributor, lent some of his beautiful numbers to a limited edition screen printed cover for the magazine. 

    The Moniker Art Fair, which ran from the 14th to 17th of October, hosted the launch of issue 13, and we had the pleasure of screen printing an edition of 190 magazines with Eine's fresh 4 colour artwork.  

    Every copy was signed by the artist, with 100 of the edition for sale on the night and 50 being put randomly into distribution.

    The remaining 40 are destined to become gold-dust, coveted by wealthy art collectors and street art aficionados alike.

    Check out the VNA blog for more of what went down.

    Oh, and check out our most awesome work experience chap of chaps, Sam Bailey, pitching in there. Hands on!

    Bikes are the world’s most fun, accessible way to get around. Posters are the world’s most fun, accessible art form. ARTCRANK brings them together.

    The first-ever ARTCRANK London show will take place on Friday, September 17 and Saturday, September 18 in the world-famous confines of Look Mum No Hands! The show features original artwork by UK artists, priced to let you put down a pint or three and still take home all your favorite posters.

    ................................................

    This is our contribution. It will be for sale at a price of £15 at the show, then if there are any left over I will put them up on our shop after the show.

    It is a 3 colour screen print on 270 gsm GFSmith Colorplan Bright White Stock. The main image is made from two photographs I took at last years 'Hacksaws Challenge' bike race (Bristol to Bath and back again).

    I am so pleased with the way these came out, especially after we managed to print them on perhaps the most humid day of the year, which played hell with the paper stretching fractionally along the grain. Still managed to get an edition of 30 with the registration of the three colours bang on.

    As always we love seeing and indeed printing the Death Before Dishonour shirts. This is the latest addition to the range, and it is a cracker. Snap one up now on the Death Before Dishonour store.

    Here is some more info taken from the Death Before Dishonour site.

    "....Cult London brand "Death Before Dishonour" has built it's following by refusing to pull punches. With no big boss to pass things through it's open season to get deep down and dirty. Images are often inspired by true "Blood and Guts" hardmanisim, with a definite ironic twist, throwing it straight back at anyone foolish enough to embrace thuggery. Experimental garment construction, martial arts military references and a cheeky little hint of "How's yer father?" come together to creat a wearable "In yer face" style...."

  28. SS1.Stripes.jpg

    Producing this punchy series of limited edition screen prints for Sam Gray from Studio Space One was a highly satisfying experience on all accounts. The clean design and solid colour pallet made for a final set of prints which hold the theme of Vertigo together in a neat, clean and thoughtful series.

    We printed this 2 Colour (Black and Yellow 012u) series 4 up on A1 270gsm GFSmith Colorplan Bright White Acid Free stock, then finished them down to 4 X A3 limited editions of 10 Screen Prints.

  29. AFx123Klan.jpg

    We just printed this 4 colour limited edition run of 25 t.shirts for the recent AnyForty Verses exhibition held, at Start The Bus, in Bristol.

    This design is the work of the highly prestigious 123Klan, based in Montreal.  These very exclusive shirts will soon be available for £25 on the AnyForty online shop for a limited amount of time, so watch that space.  All profits from shirt and art sales will be going to Bristol charity, Knowle West Media Centre.  We were pretty proud to be a sponsor of the night, along with the legendary Ripe Digital and Bristol’s premier skate shop FiftyFifty.  The exhibition was pretty hot stuff and all monies raised go to a great cause.

  30. IMG 1149.jpg

    We recently printed this rather beautiful 2 colour poster for a talk Studio 8 Design gave in May as part of The Typographic Circle events calendar. The poster was hand screen printed on Colorplan Citrine 175gsm stock which was supplied courtesy of GFSmith

    Studio8 Design is an award-winning independent graphic design studio with a reputation for delivering intelligent and engaging creative solutions. Based in central London, Studio8 was established in 2005 by Matt Willey and Zoë Bather. Working with clients both large and small, in the UK and overseas, Studio8 produces a diverse range of work that includes editorial, exhibition, signage, corporate literature, websites, and brand identities.

    I was sad to miss the talk, but very happy to have been involved in creating this elegant poster.

    THE FREAKSHOW WENT OFF!

    Whoever of you out there that made it down for the opening night would have been witness, and as we managed the drive from Bath, we too saw the wall-to-wall going off that went off.

    Really excellent turnout to a really excellent show, and one that we are really proud to have been involved in.  We printed prices for eight of the artists involved, these being illustration wizards:

    Megamunden

    Johnny Mac

    Luke Insect

    Elliott Grubb

    Chris Ede

    Velvet Spectrum &

    Tom Burden.

    The range of pieces was diverse, and each offered a different challenge in terms of separation and print.  We were stoked on the results of everything going out the door, and double stoked when seeing everything framed and on the wall amongst the rest of show at St Peter's Church in Brighton.

    Until the opening night we had only met with Megamunden in person, so making it down was a fine opportunity to meet with everyone else involved.  We sure reckon these guys and girls have a good thing going on down South, and strongly recommend dropping by the show whilst you can.  It's running every Saturday until near the end of the month, so pen it on your calendar with indelible ink.

    We were really excited to get involved in this event, A Beautiful Machine, coming courtesy of Howies & McFaul Studio.  For those of you who haven't seen the vast amount of tweeting and publicity surrounding this, the brief was simply "produce a piece of art based around the words A Beautiful Machine that isn't bigger than A2 and needs to be framed".  Or at least that's a summing up.

    Anyway, our 4 colour print is based around a photograph taken in Bristol during a skid comp, possibly one of the more exhilarating occasions one spends on his or her beautiful machine.

    We wanted to demonstrate with this edition some of the finer effects and nuances that screen print can achieve.  It runs like this...

    We're really happy with our print, but this will be only one amongst some 50 exhibiting artists!  The event runs for two weeks, so check the blog for info on how, where & when to check it out.

    When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride.

    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote that – oh so right!

    Beginning Friday March 26th McFaulStudio and howies have curated a two-week event of art, talk and ride based above the howies store in Bristol. We have reached out to those who ride, those who allow us to ride…and those who want us to ride, bringing us all together in a carnival of bicycle. Those who design and those who draw, those who paint or shoot or sew, those who talk or make, those who fix and those who nurture are all involved as they all share a love of A Beautiful Machine.

    Over 50 artists from around the Globe. 15 incredible speakers. 1 Bicycle treasure hunt, 1 rather special Bicycle auction and 1 Critical Mass. Two weeks in Bristol. A lot of fun.

    Let the good times roll!

    We printed some great tee's for Hunting Lodge's Spring 2010 NoirFun collection. Designed by Mark James these tees are really very nice indeed. If you cant make it to the Hunting Lodge shop in Norway no worries because they are now up for sale on the Hunting Lodge online shop I especially liked the 'Lobstar' design.

    There is a nice post on the Hunting Lodge blog showing the tee's in store.

    Also featured on HighSnobriety.

    What a doozy. We were stoked to print this poster, firstly because it came courtesy of well respected poster artist Todd Slater, and secondly because it used a number of great techniques in the one image.

    Technique 1 / split fountain from yellow to red. Deluxe.

    Technique 2 / super fine bitmap for the black smoke. Tidy.

    Technique 3 / what you can't see in these photos is the slightly metallic varnish layer that star-studs the black and carries the name and symbols of the artist. Sublime.

    Technique 4 / transparent bitmap dove. Started off with a transparency of 75%, which proved to be too subtle, then worked our way up to around 35-40%. Beautiful.

    Easily one of the most enjoyable prints we have produced.

  38. Dove Is A Dove

    Sleeba is a leading UK artist specialising in silk screen poster design who has produced original art for an astounding array of rock gods (and goddesses I”m sure). Oasis, Kings of Leon, The Who, Led Zeppelin and Franz Ferdinand, to mention but a few. His work has a unique style and man can he work to an eclectic brief!

    Griffin are about 'discovering new dimensions, exploring creative continents and journeying onwards”. They create garments that draw on a variety of influences and use the raw talents of international designers and crafts-people. Their collection, Made in England, saw them collaborating with old, and new, manufacturers from around the UK.

    Griffin were looking for some design input for a range of posters and t-shirts for the Made in England collection when White Duck introduced them to Sleeba. A meeting was arranged, the project was named ROCK! ART! ROCK!. A brief arrived which simply said; Magic Mushrooms, Wessex, Rock Music, Stonehenge.

    Quite astoundingly, but un-surprisingly, the outcome illustrates some truly classic printed design that could comfortably hang off the wall or shoulders of any discerning art collector.

    Check out the posters
