Oh Happy Day!
This uplifting, colourful poster by tinder + sparks should brighten up your day. It’s a great imitation of letterpress texture and ink opacity. Love the ‘twitter’ bird looking ‘y’.
If you want to see mastery of this style in letterpress, look up Alan Kitching.

Composition for the Times
This typographic layout in honour of Stanley Morrison really caught my attention. A clever composition by Pedro Arbeláez in Columbia which harnesses scale and contrast to devastating effect. Look at that ‘A’ continuing the angled stroke of the ‘R’.
I’m compiled some other typographic layout examples on Pinterest and more will  follow here with an upcoming interview with Pentagram’s Jessica Svendsen.
