Bringing Graphic Design into people's homes

I'm Tom Love, a graphic designer and artist. This is my 6th Kickstarter Project, taking design ephemera and re-imagining them as blown-up fine art. My work has been shown across the UK as well as Berlin and Moscow.

The ProjectLike my previous five successful projects, Go Pop recognises the striking graphic narrative of the 20th Century and explores the often-overlooked relationship between art and graphic design. The Go Pop! series will bring to life my collection of vintage bottle caps, blown up in size and hand printed to produce a series of high-quality fine art.


The collection consists of 6 iconic soda brands; Coca-Cola, Pepsi, 7up, Cherry Coke, NEHI and Mello Yello. I’m also sharing 40 of my favourite designs on a Kickstarter exclusive A2 giclee printed poster.

The concept
Being able to see the beauty in everyday functional design isn't easy when we're busy going about our busy lives. That's why I want to change the context in which graphic design is viewed – by blowing them up into much bigger versions of themselves so that every tiny detail can be admired. From the use of typography to colour and form, design becomes art and begins to create an emotional reaction.

The Collection of 500mm x 500mm Fine Art Screenprints

Design inspired pop art printsI want more people to value the role design has in our lives and I want more people to have access to affordable, quality art that can inspire and delight them. Refreshing homes into designer pads. To do this each detail of the original bottle cap is meticulously and painstakingly reproduced for print. 

The result: a blown up bottle cap that captures the mood of an era and the beauty of graphic design. The bottle caps will be screenprinted at 500mm x 500mm, using 8 colours (including metallic inks) to form an exclusive limited edition. Each one printed on the highest quality archival paper, hand signed by the artist (Tom love) alongside the edition number, making sure each one is a collectable and covetable piece of affordable fine art.

Framing your prints

Give your home the contemporary art gallery feel with my cheap and easy framing hack!

I've designed all the prints so they are really simple to get framed as soon as you receive them.

The screenprints are 50cm x 50cm and can be framed straight into an Ikea Ribba frame (which comes in both black and white).
The frames are both stylish and affordable (just £9!) meaning you can have these hanging on your walls in no time.

Unfortunately, because of shipping, I can't offer these framed but if you live anywhere near and Ikea - you know what to do!

About me
I'm Tom Love, a graphic designer/artist born in Leicester, schooled at the renowned Falmouth College of Arts and now calling London my home.

From a very young age, I've always had a passion for design and somehow always knew I wanted to be a designer when I grew up.

This singular goal of being a designer was set in motion the day my grandad passed his stamp collection on to me. Stamps opened up a new world to me, with these tiny little pieces of paper telling stories from a world I hadn't yet explored. Through bright, colourful illustrations, photographs and typography in languages I'd never seen before, these stamps ignited my passion and love for graphic design, travel and popular culture.

From the humble beginnings of a single stamp book, I've now amassed an eclectic collection of 20th century design from cigarettes packets, stamps and matchbox labels to luggage tags and bottle caps. The beauty and balance of design at such a small, functional scale fascinates me and has led me to my art projects today.

Join me on a screenprinting adventure as I bring these fantastic examples of 20th century branding to life and into homes across the world.

Risks and challenges

Since 2013 I have been designing and printing limited edition screenprints of my personal collection of 20th century branding and packaging design. Blowing them up in scale and producing exclusive editions which have been featured in various galleries across Europe.

This is my 6th project released on Kickstarter.
My previous kickstarter projects have all been successfully funded.

These are high quality art prints, using only the best quality papers and inks.

I will keep all funders and supporters up-to-date with the production through regular updates - showing the complete printing process.

Posters will be mailed in sturdy Kraft Tubes and protective acid free tissue paper to protect the prints on their journey to you.

Each print will be certificated, hand signed and numbered.
This Kickstarter will be the ONLY edition of these designs.

There are very few risks involved, but along the way plenty of challenges will throw themselves at me, as if often the case when producing something that is hand-made. I'm an experienced screenprinter and can happily guarantee the quality of each print.

Each stage of design, colour matching and printing will go through initial testing and quality control at every stage, making sure the finished prints are worthy of your walls.
