Jobs from the Past - Number 4

Regular followers will know that my first post of every month is a "job from the past" (see posts on 01.10.2009, 01.11.2009 & 01.12.2009) so that I can show some of the memorable jobs from times past, and here's one from back in 2006

This is a poster... Yes, this really is a poster. It was designed by Angus Hyland and Fabian Herrmann at Pentagram for a lecture given by Angus at the University of Plymouth in Spring 2006.
The purpose of the poster which was to publicise the lecture became much more because it made plain the secret desire of all posters be entered into (and win!) design competitions.

The poster was silkscreened in black and white on all 25 different colours of our Colorset 100% Recycled range in 120gsm which we had only just launched. There was a limited run of four copies per colour (100 copies total). It was featured in the June 2006 issue of Creative Review.
I believe that they "liberated" by students, pretty much as soon as they were put up!

The posters were printed by Silkscreen printers called Handprint based in Brighton.
