A love for craftsmanship, materials and the tactile nature of letterpress printing in a digital world inspired this self-promotional piece from Tompert Design … well, that and a conversation about their favorite cocktails. And of course this client gift was one of those teachable moments as the junior designers learned all about preparing art for letterpress, trapping, overprint, under color, as well as taste testing.
The fruit of all this tangy labor was a set of seven coasters with wonderful illustrations of the main ingredients in these beverages. Various color combinations were printed on thick and absorbent (4-ply) museum board to render circular slices of watermelon, kiwi, coconut, orange, lime, and pineapple. Recipes are easy and identifying each with the actual person who submitted it adds a personal touch.
Round tins were the perfect packaging and mailing solution. The keepsake nature of the coasters will definitely help bring this talented studio forward in the minds of their clients throughout the year.
