Imprint/Impress is a design conference for those moved by printed works. We will push the world of print forward to new heights, while remaining rooted in deep tradition and history. Imprint/Impress is for those interested in function as well as form; for those that do not like being told what to do; for those that forge their own path; for those that have respect for the flat and physical outcomes; for those interested in the mechanical and manual processes. One of the oldest methods of communication will be rejuvenated and reinspired through hands on workshops and talks by industry leaders.
IMPRINT/ a mark made by pressure; an impression or impressed effect, stamp; a mark used by printers; to fix firmly on the mind; to make an impression, have an effect. IMPRESS/ to affect deeply or strongly in mind or feelings; to urge, as something to be remembered; to press into or on something; to impose a particular characteristic or quality.
The cover of the 58th issue of Side Scroll Magazine attracts the viewer with a macro view of pinball in Seattle. As the reader continues into the magazine to the feature article, the view of the game is a little more zoomed in and the reader gets a surface intro the the story. Then continuing to the jump spread, the focus of the game and story is even more deeply explored.The story in the article was also written by me, based from my own perspective of growing and playing pinball with my dad. He taught me some tips and tricks, and an enjoyment of games.
The River of Styx is the boundary between this world and the afterlife, where souls must pass to reach their final resting place. Charon is the ferryman of this boundary, ferrying souls into the afterlife. However, this service comes at a price: a cold coin in the mouth of the dead. Without this underworld guide, souls are left adrift for hundreds of years.
Charon’s Ferry Cold Brew Concentrate is deadly strong and not for the faint of heart. As dark as the inside of a coffin with hints of plum, this cold brew is the perfect choice for any coffee enthusiast. Charon’s Ferry Cold Brew is our answer to the bastardization and sweetening of coffee by mermaids. Consider this your free ticket across the River of Styx, just remember to tip your ferryman!
The booklet included includes information about your coffee, but also turns into a pentagram when you unfold and flip over. Hail coffee!
