Print This: “C’mon, Feel the Drips”

Posted in Color, Photographs, Print Project 2008, Process, Textiles by Gluekit on January 23, 2009

Drips in Felt

During our work on the Print Magazine 2008 Regional Design Annual cover and interior spreads (!!), we generated hundreds of photographs documenting our approach and process for creating three-dimensional typographic scenes. Some of these images we loved for their simplicity–others for their spatial oddness, color play, or because of the exact moment they captured. This one? Well, we love drips crawling down a white wall. Drips and splatters do feature prominently in much of our work– tactile and messy and nearly always evidence of the process at hand. And in this photo you can also spot some of the stage markings we used to indicate placement for objects. In order to create some of the visual effects on the cover, we needed to calculate the right angle and position for the various components using a whole host of techniques.

Jeremyville’s Sketchel project has launched a second series of one-off (supremely limited edition) messenger bags. Graphic makers from around the world have contributed to the project, creating a rainbow of messenger bags for every taste and outfit. There are still a few Gluekit sketchels available from Series One, including the peachy one above. Britney, tigers, and computer iconography? Yes indeed! Click here for Gluekit’s contributions, filed under “Christopher Sleboda” and get your very own special edition bag.

Sew on Fire

Posted in Color, Textiles by Gluekit on September 28, 2007

The Gluekit Team has been hard at work on our assignment for Faesthetic #7, the theme is a dark one for happy kids. One of the things we’ve been experimenting with lately– well, for the past year but it’s picked up with the arrival of a beautiful vintage Bernina sewing machine– is creating plushies of 1-d forms we like to work with. Here we’re crafting a little bit of fire– burn, baby, burn!

We definitely like black and white plushie forms.

Cut, Sew, Go!

A fine example of how scissors and a sewing machine can refashion and revive a summer wardrobe in under two hours: making a too-large Gluekit Landscape shirt into something more fitting and cutting down a pre-Gluekit System Untitled shirt.

We like new/old clothes.
