Derby City Hand Lettering Print
Project Description: Custom hand lettering letterpress prints created as a personal project. Louisville, KY is also known as Derby City for hosing the annual Kentucky Derby. The idea was to create a hand-drawn lettering design in collaboration with local galleries to provide a print that locals and city visitors could purchase.
The design was entirely done by hand and digitized for output. Many of the imperfections were kept to convey the qualities of the city and spirit of the project. These were letterpress printed on pearl white cotton paper by HoundDogPress.
