PUBLICATION STUDIO > GUELPH

Lil' Weez & my freshly made PS Guelph book!
Publication Studio first set up shop in Portland (OR) and has since fostered nine 'sibling' locations, most recently in Guelph.  Here's a little blurb on what goes on there:

"We print books on demand, creating original work with artists and writers we admire. We don’t just produce books, but form new communities through the shared experience of reading. And every book is lovingly made by hand....Each studio has their own flavour, and the focus of PS Guelph is to promote the intersections of the local literary, music and art scenes."

 I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to create a logo for Guelph's location and really enjoyed the process of brainstorming and working with some of the members to tailor the design.

I tried to keep it as simple as possible knowing it was going to be turned into a stamp to be used on the freshly made books.  Here's the final design:





PS Guelph is located at Silence on Essex St.
