So it’s time for People Of Print to start giving a verbal hats off to the designers, artists and publishers that push the boundaries of print. It’s these people that ease the ever-growing anxieties about the survival of the publishing industry and we want to salute you.

It’s nice to see something experimental in it’s form, with use of bold juxtapositions and inclusion of both riso and digital printing methods. London-based designers OK RM have a catalogue of beautifully produced print work under their belts, and this is no exception.

Coming from an animation and motion graphics background, they wanted to create something more stripped back. A documentary film about people and their creativity.

RIP :: Dieter Roth

RIP :: Dieter Roth

Discovering Dieter Roth was an important moment for me. In 2004 I chanced upon a retrospective of his work packed into a warehouse in Queens’s, New York. The warehouse was Moma’s tempoary home at the time and the show was huge with a bunch of rooms dedicated to his printing activity. The security had to literally drag us out of there. Roth produced a huge body of print works in his lifetime. Experimenting, manipulating and combining the different stages of every available print process in his path. He was hugely inventive and unorthodox in his approach and he went on to develop new techniques of printing such as pressing meats, fruits and chocolate, often merged with traditional forms … Oh shits, Lion ice cream hits!

Dan Ford

Dan Ford

I studied with Dan Ford and he’s a really elusive chap – I won’t speak to him for 6 months, then we’ll speak all the time. He had an awesome exhibition (wonderfully titled ‘All Killer No Filler’ after the Sum41 album) at the amazing but now defunct Moot in Nottingham, but went a bit quiet. He’s had work in both B.C. group shows and he’s just moved to Bristol where, he says, he’s gonna get back on things. I look forward to it immensely. He doesn’t have a website as we speak so just remember his name.


Lucas

Lucas

Lucas paints everywhere all round London and has a style clearly influenced by the likes of Horfe and his painting partner-in-crime Malarkey, but he is really up to date with his knowledge of what’s happening in art and has all these great ideas for his work – more than just painting walls – he seems to understand what works, so whatever he does next, it won’t be shit ha ha.

James Jarvis

James Jarvis

James Jarvis has a show at Beach in February. I’m really glad as he’s pretty much a design legend, isn’t he? It feels like he’s legitimised a lot of stuff we’ve done, by showing in a space where we’ve had a lot of up-and-comers, and is supporting their work too. I feel a little bit humbled by it, in a way. He’s showing a series of 52 lino cuts he made weekly throughout 2011, and they’re ace.
