Steve Jobs Letterpress Tribute Poster
Created these two posters to celebrate the life/work of Steve Jobs...in a "Two Paperdolls" letterpress aesthetic.
There are countless kind things to say about Steve Jobs. The man left us hundreds of inspirational quotes and material to aid in the celebration of his life. We thought we’d celebrate him in the way we do best; wood type. After all, Steve Jobs attributes the wonderful design of his products to a typography course he took in college,
“I learned about serif and san serif typefaces, about varying the amount of space between different letter combinations, about what makes great typography great. It was beautiful, historical, artistically subtle in a way that science can’t capture, and I found it fascinating. None of this had even a hope of any practical application in my life. But ten years later, when we were designing the first Macintosh computer, it all came back to me. And we designed it all into the Mac. It was the first computer with beautiful typography. If I had never dropped in on that single course in college, the Mac would have never had multiple typefaces or proportionally spaced fonts.”
