About this project

 The Humble Pixel

The start of any project always begins with one thing. The Humble Pixel. A quiet, shy little guy who doesn't ever get much appreciation, yet is the backbone of everything us designer types create.

It's about time we celebrated this tiny little bundle of creativity.

The Beauty of Print

But how? Well we could make an app or a groovy parallaxing website. But in a day and age where almost everything is digital, fighting for the birth place of the pixel, print, is a battle which is getting harder and harder. The truth is nothing will ever beat the feel, smell and beauty of fresh inks on a page (give me an amen!) So we have created our own little beautifully simple series of A2 posters to celebrate the journey we all go on as a project begins and develops.

We would love to see this project come into being and print a short run of 50 of each of the posters in the series. Four in white on a beautiful Fedrigoni 170gsm Black Sirio and the final is a stunning glossy metallic gold.

Each print will be hand numbered and signed by me the designer Chris Smyth.

Posters will be sold through various sources for £30 each with free postage. Poster sets (all five prints) will be available for £100. All backers will receive a free poster.

Why the circle? Pixels are little squares I hear you say! Well, dots are circles, right? Welcome to our new new little take on 'Dots Per Inch'... 'Dots Per Poster!'

Why support this project?

If your studio walls are anything like ours they are full of beautiful screen prints that cost an arm and leg but are there to hopefully inspire and spur us on. They all cost a chunk of money and of course we are happy to pay to cover our walls in print. But here is your chance to receive a beautiful limited edition hand signed poster for a fraction of what it would normally cost simply by supporting this project. Plus you can then sleep easy at night knowing your generous offering is a small step to do your bit to keep print alive!

These are high quality prints using only the best quality papers and inks. Paper stock for all prints: Fedrigoni 170gsm Black Sirio

If you do have any questions please feel free to ask me anything. I understand that everyones money is hard earned and I want to make sure everyone who backs me is 100% comfortable with this project, I'm truly appreciative of every pound pledged and will be glad to answer any questions.

The Production Process
These A2 prints will be screen printed by hand. Each piece will also be hand signed by me the designer. And part of a limited edition of just 50 each.

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