Letterpress Design Competition

Holy crap this is cool...

Gilah Press + Design in Baltimore is hosting Ready, Set, Fly! a design competition that could result in your artwork being tranformed into a limited edition letterpress print. Ten submissions will be selected for inclusion in a limited edition box set.

The theme for the competition is "fly" and can be interpreted however you like. Designs will be judged based on concept, design, illustration, and typography. Gilah will then host a show featuring the new work and the box sets will be available for purchase.

To submit your work for consideration, go here. The deadline is February 12.

And to learn more about the fantastic work being done at Gilah, check out this blog post from when I toured their studio space last month.
