Mark Blamire – better known as Blam, the proprietor of online poster archive and shop, Blanka – is starting up a sister venture called Print-Process. Like Blanka, Print-Process is a website from which visitors can buy posters. However, unlike Blanka, each poster on the PP site will be available as an archival quality Giclée print, in a selection of different sizes (A2, A1 and A0) and printed to order..
“With Blanka we always made prints to one size and to a strict edition,” explains Blam. “We felt that we should aim to broaden the choices for our customers, especially those excluded from owning a piece of printed work due to its price or its size.”
“As we develop and grow,” continues Blam, “we also want to involve our customers in this evolution. ‘Democratic’ is one of the key words we use, when we explain the simple philosophy on which Print-Process is founded. It will also be one of the consistent values at the heart of the company, as we push forward and explore exciting new opportunities of making graphic art and imagery in a more accessible way for our customers and our artists.”
Studio Build has designed the identity, two launch posters and the website for print-process.com (screengrab of the homepage shown above) which launches this week with over 100 posters to choose from, designed by the likes of James Joyce, Spin, Alison Haigh and Leander Herzog.
For our December issue‘s Gallery prize, Blam has very generously set aside one of each of the two Build launch posters (at A0 size, each worth £120) to give away, plus the opportunity to visit the Print-Process site and choose any other poster at any available size. Here’s a look at the two Build poster designs up for grabs:
