words of wisdom

The Salt Lake letterpress printer, The Mandate Press, puts on an annual exhibition of invited artists to create work around an interesting theme. The printer produces letterpress prints of each artist’s work using the same paper stock and ink colors, bringing visual consistency to the show. The exhibiting artists works were further restricted to typographic solutions only, based on the theme “Words of Wisdom”. Randall Smith, modern8 Creative Director, designed a print reflecting a personal statement of interests. The “Pints & Prints” opening night exhibition was July 18, but the work of all 20 artists are currently on display during business hours at The Mandate Press.
