Sage Advice (letterpress)

“Sage Advice (wisdom of an Ad Man)” is a series of works made in 2012/2013 based on a memory of ‘sayings’ or things my father would say to me when I was a kid, often in answer to difficult questions or just to be deliberately obtuse.

I was very influenced by him and his career in Advertising, and continue to be. These are kinda wry memorial works to him in the spirit he would have appreciated. The works began as 5 different floral collage & graphic mandalas paired with 5 letterpress works featuring the titles of the prints, handlettered and letterpress printed & foiled with the associated graphic emblem.

I adapted each design as repeat patterns and from these I also made cushions, scarves, earrings and decals in limited edition. The prints were exhibited and the products launched at the Arts Northern Rivers PopUp events ‘Northern Rivers Creatives’ at the Rocks & Byron Bay in 2013.

The limited edition prints can be purchased here in our online store.
