SHOWCASE : COURSE
Letterpress

website/ www.designcollege.com.aublog/ www.designcollegeaustralia.blogspot.com.au

Everything is more fun the old fashioned way. Letterpress for an example - before the days of Photoshop and InDesign, everything that you see on paper was laid out by hand using a series of carved blocks, ink, and a fancy looking rustic machine called a letterpress.
If you’re a typography wiz, a design student or just like playing with stamps, this letterpress course could be for you. It’s run by the Design College Of Australia, which is a boutique graphic design and photography institution in Brisbane.

Standard Fortunes are:

  • You’ll be famous
  • You’ll fall in love
  • You’ll be happy
