toofprints is a side project exploring contemporary graphic design in a public space — Alice Yard. Curated by notsirk in conversation with Erik Brandt, founder of Ficciones Typografika.
The exhibition surface is a 50 3/4"(W) x 39 1/2"(H) concrete slab, fitting up to two 25 3/8"(W) x 39 1/2"(H) posters, side by side.
Call for Submissions:
Graphic design work that is typographic and pertaining to your native language or dialect is encouraged. The one rule is that the poster(s) should be black & white ONLY. If there is bleed, please include crop marks. Everything else is up to you — content, theme, etc. Also, please remember that the space is public. Poster(s) will be printed on white bond paper.
This is an ongoing project, so there is no deadline. Please submit your work via email to notsirkdesign (at) gmail (dot) com in PDF format. Don’t forget to include crop marks if your work requires bleeds. Thanks.
