Hamilton Type Museum Letterpress Workshop

This past winter I went on a field trip with some of my design students from Judson University and my colleague and fellow design professor, Lauren Meranda, to the Hamilton Type Museum. We got a tour of the museum and got to take part in a letterpress workshop. I finally had the time to scan in some of my iterations, which are posted below. At the workshop we were asked to start by working with one work, I chose "Wanderlust." After that I grab the alphabet in Helvetica Neue Condensed Bold and tried different techniques of layering different colored inks on top of one another. I had SO much fun.
