Studio on Fire is a best-in-class craft letterpress printer focused on making premium print and design work. Located in Minneapolis, MN, they keep steady clientele with the top design firms, agencies, and corporations in the world. Letterpress, foil, die cutting, edge coloring, and hand bindery are all processes they do in-house.
Each year our studio picks a theme, a color palette, and paper stocks before recruiting crush-worthy illustrators to join us in creating custom art for a promotional letterpress printed calendar. Artists were given the theme of Lucky Number 13 and asked to interpret it at will, resulting in a multitude of superstitious icons and ironic illustrations.
We designed the tri-fold outer wrap by stealing bits and pieces from the monthly illustrations, collaging them in a long strip to be trimmed off the press sheet and later used for packaging.
