The latest Jordan Buckley vs. Hero Collab ETID Tour Poster

Every Time I Die 2010 Australian Tour Poster

This is the latest Jordan Buckley vs Hero Design Studio collaborative ETID tour poster. This print is the fourth in a series where the illustration line work is done by Jordan and handed over to us where we handle all the color, typography, the layout and any additional illustration, and of course the screen printing.

This poster sold out while they are on tour in Australia and we have a very limited supply for sale now.

We also still have a few (only about 5) of the last poster for their European Tour available for sale, once both of these posters are sold out they will never be made again.

I want to make beautiful things.

Watch this. Inspiration.

Pulled to the Limit - Hero Design Studio Retrospective Exhibition

Hero Design Studio Retrospective Exhibition at WNY Book Arts Center
Wednesday, January 13- Saturday, February 20, 2010

Artist Reception Friday January 29 6-9 PM

In a relatively short time, Hero Design Studio has become a fixture in the Buffalo music and design scene. Their limited edition silk screened poster and design work for bands and special events has appeared internationally and has been featured in Spin, Print and How magazines and in such books as Gig Posters: Rock Show Art of the 21st Century alongside the most renowned practitioners of this art form, which has enjoyed a national renaissance in the last few years. Hero is husband and wife team, Beth Manos and Mark Brickey. The screen printing, illustration and design duo have created hundreds of hand printed posters and art prints since starting as Hero in 2003 and expanded their presence via their Allentown studio/shop. Silkscreen printing (also known as serigraphy) is a method of print making in which the negative of an image is blocked out of a screen of fine mesh, and ink is pulled through the open areas of the mesh onto the printing surface.

Pulled to the Limit at the Western New York Book Arts Center's gallery will feature the most comprehensive exhibit of Hero's silkscreened works to date. Along with limited edition prints and posters, the exhibit will feature one-of-a-kind prints, experimental work and works-in-progress that will help explain the creative and production process.

An artists' reception will be held mid-Exhibit on Friday, January 29, 2010 for a meet and greet, a special live printing demonstration with a commemorative poster for the exhibit being made on the spot, refreshments and more.

An additional Demo day, free and open to the public will be presented February 17th 6-8pm that guides participants through the specifics of how screen printing is done . This event is free and open to the public but pre-registration is required.
