Getting your hands dirty

Revolver Revolver Silk-Screen Prints

At Revolver Revolver we often think about what it would have been like to be involved in an agency in a different era. Everyone in the studio is a big fan of MadMen from the advertising perspective (and rightly so!) of the 1950’s and 1960’s in America when it was all about the post-war boom.

But what about being involved in the artwork stage, the actual production. Imagine it in an era before shiny Apple Macs, Adobe’s Creative Suite, Linotype Font Explorer keeping all the typefaces you could possibly imagine stored neatly, and the digital print houses just a helpful phone call away. Well, we got a little taste of what it might have been like as we took part in a silk-screen printing workshop at Green Door Printmaking Studio in Normanton, Derby. It’s a great place to go to learn more about traditional forms of printmaking, and get your hands dirty.

The results of this are twinned with our month of exposure in the Friar Gate Studios Foyer. We’ve gone a little further by producing 55 prints that are now adorning the ceiling in Bean Caffe. Each one was individually screen-printed by hand onto GFSmith’s Colourplan range. Every shade they offer is now carrying our flagship phrase “Being hard to forget isn’t easy.”

That phrase encompasses all that we try to achieve for our clients. We endeavour to make you hard to forget, so your brand becomes more noticed, and consumer empathy and relations grow, therefore increasing your likelihood of success.
