"Feel The Nature, Feel The Form! Natural forms is the best way to show naturalness of product. You need to have only form that to understand what is inside of package. Honey must looks as honey. That is why this package is so simple and clean. You have to enjoy the smell and taste of Honey. Nothing more should not bother you."
The moment he took a pencil and drew something on the wall that later on turned out to be a car, his design career was started. Then he swapped a pencil for a spray paint and cars were drawn not only inside his house but also on city streets. Afterwards, he found practical use for his skills and worked for a student newspaper as an illustrator while studying tourist management. Career in that field ended before it even started and Maxim decided to become a designer. He prefers working in silence and to have his work done to satisfy the highest standards. He likes the sun and snow, coffee and ice-cream
Shop Hunting Tuesdays: The Weekend Press
Oakland Illustrated | Support on Kickstarter
The Weekend Press is an Oakland-based letterpress printing and design studio that brings together the quality and craft of a fine printer with the charm and aesthetic of a modern designer. It’s a studio where local Bay Area artists, illustrators, and designers can collaborate with us to realize their art as printed editions or beautifully finished client pieces.
TWP is embarking on its first adventure: an ode to Oakland in 10 limited-run prints from 10 incredible Bay Area artists. They’ve teamed up with 10 talented designers and friends for their very first collaboration: Oakland Illustrated, a letterpress tribute to the city they call home. Each three-color print features a different experience in Oakland, printed with love in their studio on premium cotton paper.
Now, they have the amazing artwork and a trusty press — but they still need the funds for the official print run. Successfully funding this project means that they’ll be able to produce the project in a cost-effective way and smooth out any bumps that occur during the process.
As their thank you for your love and support, these prints will only be available through Kickstarter — you’ll be among the few lucky people to own this first edition print set.
So if you know someone else who loves letterpress as much as you do, feel free to share this project with them!
