is teaming up with Diesel
Fuel Prints to create a series of screenprinted posters! The
goal is to bring multiple designers together, produce a high quality
series of prints that will benefit all of the designers, and sponsors
poster is a collaboration of 4 designers / artists. We would like
to see many different styles and techniques pulled together to produce
- We would prefer to bring people together with differing styles
and geographic location. We are not looking for groups that currently
work together as a team. It would be nice to see 4 designers from
all over the world, who have never worked together before.
design, subject matter and colors are completely up to the group.
We would like to see all 4 designs combine to bring the image together.
In other words, each square should not be treated as an individual
design .. but 1/4 of it.
poster will be divided into 4 imaginary quadrants. This should give
you an idea of the possible layout:
Each poster will be a limited edition of 150 screenprinted posters
(approx. 24" x 34")
Each designer will receive 15 prints to sign and sell independantly.
The remaining prints will be for sale on gigposters.com.
All posters will be signed and number by Andy Stern of Diesel
Fuel Prints. It would be too costly to ship the posters around
to get the signatures of all 4 designers. Some posters may be signed
by some of the designers at events such as Flatstock.
The group will choose up to 5 Pantone uncoated colors to use as
a standard. All 4 designers must use the same colors.
If you choose to use halftones, they must be 25 lines per inch (LPI)
Finished art must be submitted in one of the following formats:
- each color on a seperate layer
- each color on a seperate layer
All images must be 300 DPI or higher.
organization and collaboration is completely up to the group. You
may choose to have 1 person do a section, email it to the next person,
who adds their section and passes it on etc. Or all 4 can work independantly,
and one person combines all 4 into the finished product.
designer is free to use whatever method they wish to create their
hand illustrated, digital, photocopy cut & paste, mixed media,
finished product must use the chosen 5 Pantone uncoated colors,
and the image must be screenprintable.
The finished product may have a border if you wish.
The quadrant shape can be changed, but we must be informed ahead
