Design student Olaf with his completed poster

Designers LOVE printing with poster type. Some also like to do it in a less structured way.

Olaf, after his basic letterpress training, has done both structured and unstructured designs with a range of type faces. Even though it's unstructured in appearance, the SPACING has to be right ... it involves a bit of arithmetic. (Not too hard, like a PICA is twelve POINTS. An ya gotta PUT THE TYPE AWAY after the job.)
