In Pursuit of the English

In Pursuit of the English

Carin Goldberg Design, New York, New York, 1995

Description

The direction here was to do a design that reflected the life of the working class English. I was inspired by books of old English woodtype posters. Who isn’t? Through the use of my beloved copy machine and a great accident, I repeated the design again upside down. It looked like a reject or a mistake that might be found on the floor of a printer’s workshop. I felt this communicated the experience of the laborer as well as the literal message.
