Design by Dave – Limited Edition
Here’s a very nice piece of print – that I had the please of seeing on my travels last week – from Manchester based designer Dave Sedgwick.Take it away Dave:
“The printed piece was created as an exercise in design, photography and consideration of paper stocks. I worked very closely with award winning photography duo Shaw & Shaw as well as with GF Smith papers to produce the piece.
The project began life as a discussion between myself and GF Smith’s Jane Crowther as an opportunity to showcase the variety of different paper stocks that could be used to print digitally. We talked about the possibility of producing a limited edition (only 250 printed) promotional piece that could be sent out to a collection of designers and creatives based mainly in the North of England.
The aim of ‘limited edition’ was to highlight Craft and Design in the North of the UK and for the first piece we chose to work with the Craft and Design Centre in Manchester as it has recently celebrated its 30th anniversary and is a perfect venue in which to promote and feature.
Shaw and Shaw produced some lovely photography for the piece and we were lucky to receive a quote from the new patron of the centre, Elbow’s Guy Garvey.
This is the first in what we plan to be a series of printed pieces promoting and showcasing a variety of handcrafts, traditonal methods and original techniques.”
