The aim with this piece was to re-create the subtleties of the artwork in print and we're really happy to say that it worked. The poster looks AMAZING! It was commissioned by Computer Arts Projects, as a collaboration between WDSP and Craig Ward, as a subscription offer, available now. So, if you are not already subscribing then now is about the best time imaginable.
The really rather interesting Stan Peach has created the worlds only zig zag check as a limited and numbered poster and t-shirt. For us it was satisfying to print as it is a tight registering geometric 3 colour print, always fun. Not much is known about this man, but we know he believes in producing brilliant limited edition pieces. The motto on his website reads 'back in the day when shit was hand-made', we like this.
