In September I was part of a group show at Chromatic Coffee in Santa Clara. I had the pleasure of designing a coffee bag for their small batch coffee, Gloria’s San Jose.
These coffee bags were handset in lead type, printed on a letterpress, and then digitized in order to create a metal plate for foil stamping. So these went from analog to digital to analog, and ended where they began, in a sense - using an impression to create an image.
I designed and printed the content for the front and back of the bag at Penland in August, using their delightful collection of type and ornaments.
