Black Moustache Letterpress / 500 Posters / 4c / 70cm x 30cm / 60g/m2 / Aug 2009
Eisgekühlt und frisch gezapft
4c letterpress posters for the monthly program for veka-glarus.ch using photopolymer plates. Since my photopolymer processor was to small to handle these 70cm x 30cm printing plates, they have been exposed to sunlight and washed out in a bathtub. Yeah!
I used different diffusion dither halftones on every colour layer. Starting with an 80dpi halftone for the yellow layer. Then I used a 60dpi halftone for the cyan layer, a 40dpi halftone for the magenta layer and a 20dpi halftone for the black layer. These variations in the resolution make this 4c halftone very rought and smoth at the same time. Plus it makes it easy to print, since since no moiré effect can occour. The pixelated diffusion dither halftone gives this poster a very digital look.
When it comes to printing I used neon green instead of cyan and neon pink instead of magenta to gvie this poster a washed out appearance right from the start.
A copy of this poster is now in the archive of the poster collection at Museum of Design Zurich. (Search for ‹eisgekühlte›)
