Top 7 Print Projects To Watch Out For

Department Store is the online store that's part of the creative company, People of Print. Naturally, we go nuts when it comes to a beautifully print project and couldn't resist sharing with you these little stunners! Below you can find a selection of some recent print projects that we absolutely loved, enjoy. ;) 

First up is Hayley Berridge, Hayley is a Midlands-based multi-disciplinary designer who graduated from Liverpool John Moores University. Her ‘Imperfection’ project is a playful and visually intense publication to showcase the combination between moiré patterns and typography through the means of scanning. The fully risographed bound book shows the journey from simple patterns to more complex moiré design shown through the method of type. 

Having launched as an online publication in 2014, Eye of Design’s pages contain an approach that tackles a vairety of important topics such as mental health, sexuality, education, and gender disparity all through a design lens. Usually contained with a digital prison, Eye of Design has escaped in the form of a quarterly print magazine, offering a new playground to experiment with design ideas, printing methods and story formats. Check out the full article we wrote about this fabulous piece of print here.. 

A recent publication that caught our eye is the recent issue of PANTA, a tri-annual print magazine published by Book a Street Artist which celebrates the independent creative culture around the world. Featuring work from emerging artists, writer and photographers, their contributions all focus on the artistic and cultural initiatives that have the power to take on social, cultural and environmental issues – what has now become known as Artivism. We enjoyed this publication in particular for its high quality Art Direction that can be seen throughout it's pages and within it's content. 

Printed Pages is a magazine by It’s Nice That. In issue 13, you’ll find 240 pages of inspiring work and appealing articles featuring creatives from all around the world. The cover is a smiling face designed by illustrator Ted Parker, whilst inside you’ll find exclusive features including an interview with pioneering photographer William Eggleston, a photo essay documenting a special and rarely seen work by Heatherwick Studio and, to our enjoyment, a gallery of 14 epic smiles created by the likes of Martin Parr, James Jarvis, Rose Blake and more. Who doesn't love a smiley face ;) 

Print still isn't dead and Gross is killing it. This publication is filled with exclusive stories, drawings, interviews, photos, and 20 stickers that reveal hidden content (nice) - all of which will make your pants tight. Brought to you by Kevin Peth and Victor Gonzalez  with the help of 20 kickass contributors and 167 incredible Kickstarter backers, has officially been released; a limited run of 1000 buttery copies containing 20,000 hand-placed groovy stickies.
