New North Press Workshop


In July 2018 we visited New North Press, just down the road, for a letterpress workshop with Graham Bignell. Part of Standpoint, this amazing studio is tucked away up one flight of stairs and once you step through the door you enter a world of text; analogue fonts of yesteryear and a type to convey any feeling of any day.

The Ambassadors went with a mission of choosing a font to be used to communicate the anti-networking event that they were planning, which was finally called ‘My Art & Soul’. They all got a chance to explore the different typefaces and choose whichever one they liked. With help placing the letters on the press, they all had a print to take home and their individual font choices were put together in a large poster.
