design pieces inspired by historical artifacts and documents
The Weekly is a weekly blog series that showcases vintage inspired design pieces and the hand-done work that goes into aging them. Common-place labels, tickets, posters etc. from eras ranging the 1900s to the 1970s and locations ranging from Uganda to Germany were thoroughly researched and used as the inspiration for the weekly design pieces.
In order to pay homage to the original items, tactile elements such as string, stamps, wax seals, and old photographs were used in the production of the pieces. Typewriters and nibs dipped in India ink were used extensively. Pieces were aged by hand using coffee, tea, erasers, sandpaper, etc.
Step by step images were also posted along with the finished pieces to highlight the different tools and techniques that were used to accomplish the final product.
This project was featured on the---weekly blog along with on social media such as Pinterest and Linked-in.
