Revolver Coffee

"We worked closely with Revolver Coffee to create a visual identity and brand that would embody the values and spirit of its founders, the Giannakos brothers. We created a system that was flexible enough to be applied to exterior signage, menus, stationery, while also working in harmony with the interior design of their space.”

About Post Projects
Post Projects is a Vancouver based graphic art and design studio that began with the partnership of Alex Nelson and Beau House. We currently work with a network of local and international specialists on creative projects that include identity & branding, print media, and interactive development.

Studio Philosophy
"It could be better" is an oft-repeated phrase in the Post Projects studio. We understand the commercial value of good creative ideas and see great potential for development in today’s visual landscape. We operate with a flexible, open process and appreciate working with people that are as focused on craftsmanship as we are.

Platform Gallery: Intersections 

"This poster was commissioned by our friends at Working Format for Intersections, their second poster exhibition at the Platform Gallery.

From Working Format: Hollywood & Vine. Haight & Ashbury. Portage & Main. All great cities have intersections that are recognizable outside of their limits. Often these intersections conjure memories of historical and cultural significance, or are the scene for a unique civic attribute. Intersections will celebrate the unique experiences of seven of Vancouver’s best known intersections, through visual expressions of identity, character and the unique experience of specific places.”

Platform Gallery: By Any Other Name

"In late summer 2011, our friends at Working Format invited Post-Projects’ founding partner Alex Nelson to contribute to their poster exhibit entitled By Any Other Name. Each participant was assigned a pseudonym for the city of Vancouver, which was to be used as a key element in their design. From Working Format’s brief:

'Like many other cities, Vancouver’s diverse, multicultural background has given way to the creation of several alternate names. These names — given in admiration, as matter-of-fact descriptors, or in jest — observe the many facets of our local industry, culture and geography. Bestowed by both residents and visitors, they suggest the multitude of histories that collectively define Vancouver.'”

Raymond Biesinger is a self-taught illustrator based in Montreal, Canada, who spent a very long time in that country’s west. He likes concepts, making music, progressive politics and a curious mix of minimalism and maximalism. He deploys physical things, electronic means, and a BA in European and North American political history to make his images, and has done so since the year 2000 in over 1200 projects on four continents.”

PHIL & SEBASTIAN COFFEE ROASTERS

image

"this crest is one dozen feet wide and stuck to the wall of Phil & Sebastian’s Marda Loop shop in Calgary. Within it are two dozen symbols representing everything from the founders’ foundational coffee soujourn to South America to roast profiles and bean competitions. At bottom: the original (very popular) P&S stand."

NOTHING MAJOR

image

"a combination of Marlena Dietrich’s legs in fishnets and a broken North Korean T-34 tank just might be a metaphor for the bankrupcy but attractiveness of violence. Put out as a four-colour tee shirt by an offshoot of Pitchfork called Nothing Major in the summer of 2011, art direction by Michael Renaud."

image

AN EDMONTON CIVIC CREST

image

"this is a simple trace and mangle of the actual Edmonton crest. ‘Industry,’ ‘integrity’ and ‘progress’ were ditched for the first three toilet words imagined. The rifle was original, but removing the pioneer’s head and putting it in Minerva’s arm was not, as well as replacing the hunter’s head with a Soviet flag (re: ‘Redmonton’) and Minerva losing her book of knowledge. Other changes? All are explained right here. Has been deployed as shirts, prints, stickers, and tattoos.”

PRINT

Print gave me six full pages in their Oct. 2012 issue to fill with a visual essay on the theme “international.” The result: a personification of the NATO, Coca-Cola, the Koreas, the UN, increasingly stateless graphic artists, the USSR, the Freemasons, and TICA (the International Cat Association).”

Europe 1919 Game Board Map

image

"This is a one-colour silkscreened map of Europe circa 1919, made to be simply viewed or played as if it was the classic Risk board game. It’s mostly geographically and historically accurate, and I was happy to put my BA to use making it in early 2007 and revising it in late 2011. The board enjoys 106 squares and 21 national bonus areas. Also included: 112 different pre-cut country cards on cardstock.

Why 1919? It’s when Europe was shell-shocked and decentralized. France, Germany and Britain were spent. Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Hungary, Turkey, etc. were in different kinds of revolution (some successful, some not). Seemed a nice year to express the backstabbing, chaotic tumult of a game like Risk, no? Also, note that you can find an in-depth interview about the game and peripheral topics right here.”

HOW ILLUSTRATIONS ARE MADE

image

"the 18x24" silkscreened print isn’t just paper and ink in an edition of 100. No, it’s studio visit by you to any illustrator in the world. It’s a tour not just of the desirable, creative, parts of the studio (which are actually just a fraction of the clock’s face) but one from tip to tail showing all the unsexy billing, researching, toiling, incinerating, etc. This is how illustrations are made.

Contents include: an observatory, life preserver, lightbulb, anti-stylistic theft defence system, photocopier, hidden shame, a globe, paint, misc. art supplies, watercolours, infinite toil, a sketch incinerator, literacy, scheduling, cash flow, budgeting, shaking down deadbeat clients, telephone negotiations, a computer zone, photo reference studio, reference library (with canon of saints), a timeclock, the illustrator him/herself, booze distractions, minding the copyrights, an input of coffee, ink reservoir, a locked entryway, a stairwell, shipping room with flatfile, and a stunted little domestic life. Look familiar?”

"Hinterland creates unique work for people to use, enjoy and cherish. We are artists, woodworkers and craftspeople who build by hand using natural materials. Drawing on fifteen years’ experience, we believe in and stand behind our techniques, designs and finished products.

To us, materials are at the heart of what we make. They provide the initial inspiration for the design, and also provide the user with an innate and ongoing connection to the natural world. We care about where we source, prizing salvaged, found and local materials, along with recycled and eco products. And we care about how we treat those materials through the building process.

Everything we build has a story. It starts with the materials, is shaped by the design and build, then develops through the many hands that use it throughout its lifetime.” — Hinterland Design

SCATTER/GATHER PENDANT LIGHT

image

"This pendant gets its name from its materials: wooden branches scattered far and wide along the rugged Pacific shoreline, that are gathered up. Hand-constructed using pegged and glued through-tenons, no fasteners detract from the abstract and natural beauty of each unique fixture."

MATERIALS | Found ocean-washed branches, black or white cloth-covered twisted electrical wire, medium-base porcelain lamp socket

LITTLE GEM

image

"A side table and sculpture for indoors or out, it’s made from cast-off cedar logs given second life as a crystalline form. It’s hand-shaped and faceted based on the different characteristics of each log, and variations in wood grain, top surface and finish further ensure that no two are alike. Left to weather outdoors, this piece will acquire a natural silver finish."

MATERIALS | Western red cedar

NURSELOG

"These dual-purpose side tables bring the outdoors to the indoors. Mimicking rain forest stumps that grow mosses and ferns from their tops, a round insert allows a small arrangement of plants to add a living element to a useful surface. No two are alike."

MATERIALS | Western red cedar

TREETOP DINING TABLE

image

"Inspired by the sentinels of the forest, these salvaged and dried hardwood logs from coastal B.C. create unique, tree-like table legs that only reveal their modernist leanings at the chamfered intersection with the table’s top surface. This knockdown table flatpacks, and is easily assembled."

MATERIALS | Salvaged hardwood legs FSC-certified hardwood top
