silkscreened designs are so refreshing!

We all have probably created/tried to create a silkscreen effect on type or images. However, no matter how many textures we layer on, nothing beats a good old silkscreened poster. What first drew me to Ed Nacional's work was his poster series for the Terry Shop, a vintage clothing store. What is most attractive about the series is Nacional's use of screenprinting, which is refreshing in a world of primarily vector images. Based in Brooklyn, NY, Nacional blends the universally pleasing multi-typeface poster with classic handmade techniques like letterpress and silkscreening. Nacional's creative use of type paired with old school techniques makes his designs just oh so pleasant to look at.
