We had the honor to be a part of “No Time to Be Wasted” an exhibition that Marie-Louise Hellgren, HearteartH, created during Stockholm Design Week. We didn’t have the chance to come to Stockholm which made us extra happy to receive these nice pictures shot by Louise Billgert.
This spring we have decided to open up the studio some more, we call it Jolly Good Lördag. For us it’s a chance to let our local friends and customers come and see some more of what we do and how screen printing works, buy something from us without shipping cost, or just drink coffee with us : ) Here is some pictures from the first #jollygoodlördag which had the theme “skate”.
The freedom to roam, or everyman’s right (Allemansrätten) is the general public’s right to access certain public or privately owned land for recreation and exercise. The right is sometimes called the right of public access to the wilderness or the right to roam. (Wikipedia) This print is our celebration to and reminder of Allemansrätten!
The poster is screen printed by hand in black and white on brownish paper. The paper is made out of recycled paper and rests from paper production (“kvistmassa”) so the look of the paper vary and can change color slightly . Also available on our standard paper Munken Pure (off white) were the text is printed in grey. You can have a look at it in the shop.
We have started to experiment with painting and screen printing on different materials. Here is a short presentation of the first collection of art works. Eight unique paintings. Which one is your favorite?
The poster is screen printed by hand on heavy off-white (Munken Pure 240g) uncoated swedish paper.
Size: 46×64 cm (18×25 inches) Stamped title and signed with pencil (which you can also see in the picture below).
Which is your favorite record?
Here is a way to show the world which music inspires you.
The music gets new visual forms and become more and more digital, but we like the tactile feeling of a gramophone record, to grab a cover and pull out a long play!
We see the print as a hybrid between two of our biggest sources of inspiration – music (LP) and nature (log). We call it simply Long Play.
Originally it was created as an alternative album cover for the delightful pop duo The Forest And The Trees and is now living its own life and has evolved into a kind of monotype. Every tote bag will be unique!
We screen print the “LP” without the title and when you decide which record title you want us to customize the bag with, we print the text using a custom-made template.
Who wants a record cover nowadays? Well, most of our friends don’t care. So we made the cover bigger and left out the cd. Actually, it’s big enough to carry your favourite magazines or the groceries. And it contains a code to download The Forest & The Trees debut album.
