'YCN', 72 Rivington Street

My most recent collaboration has seen me create a Limited Edition Print for YCN, available through them only either online, or by popping down to their Rivington Street HQ. It now has it's own unique library which I wasted no time in joining. Receiving my library card by post a few days later was a joyous moment ...

It has been a pleasure to meet and work alongside Nick @ YCN, as well as the whole YCN team. I find it to be a most inspiring environment which seems to change and evolve between my every visit. Of late, these have been almost weekly so there is a wealth of creativity to be constantly observed. A visit is highly recommended ... the 'downstairs' is open publicly from 10am, Monday - Friday.
The print I have created for them is an abstract three colour silkscreen, with an added fourth layer of letterpress depicting the five lines of the YCN identity. My idea loosely stems from observing the use of traditional end papers in publishing. This is the first time i have combined two print making techniques in one image, but it certainly won't be the last.
