Mortar&Pestle x Harry Watts

On Friday evening we headed over to the Open Studios event in SE1 to have a beer with our friends over at Mortar&Pestle. A fine display of work donned the tables and walls around the studio, including a few pieces printed by Black Box Press.

On the evening we were pleased to bump into two very talented photographers: on our way to the studio we saw Luca Sage, photographing black walls at the time. Be sure to check out Lucas beautiful Portrait series.

And lastly Harry Watts was photographing portraits of the boys behind Mortar&Pestle studio; Daniel Camacho and Richard Knowles, on the night. See the portraits below.

Mr. Sly meets the Risograph

‘Tis the season for degree shows once more and with it comes a surge of printing on the Black Box Press. One of our favourite projects came from Dan Sly of the Colchester School of Art, Design and Media: so we thought that we would share some of his work with you before his show tomorrow evening.

Just in case you can’t make it you can have a peek at what else he has been up to over at his website.

Let the Riso Printing Commence

Over the last two of years we have been helping out fellow designers by printing their work on Black Box Press. Whilst the photographic work has been very successful, we also want to provide a platform for folk who don’t need huge production runs or full colour. It is also a much cheaper way to get your project out there.

As a lot of the work doesn’t go on the Black Box Press site we thought we would give you a peek of what we have been up to recently. Above – James Morrison the Gramaphone Club. Below – Paper for the Kingston University Fine Art Publication.
