The Year of the Maker

Happy New Year to you folks!

2014 was a busy year for us at Fieldwork HQ.

To kick off 2015 the Year of the Maker was born! Everyone has, at some time in their lives, experienced the joy of making. We want to see more people embrace that joy more often. This year is the revolution of making things! We want everyone to have the skill and desire to start making, and to build things that make the world more like they want it to be. We made some A2 year planners to help you mark your making dates.

The planner design was inspired by our day-to-day working elements, that help us create, make and develop our way from pen to paper, to the digital format we use daily.

We had the pleasure of working with The Print Room MCR on producing the wall planner. All the prints were hand pulled by Sarah herself, in Gold ink onto GF Smith 270gsm Colorplan Mist uncoated stock. There isn’t anything more satisfying than a bit of metallic print.

Also we are fortunate enough to be in walking distance from their studio space. They have a lovely set up and we wanted to document the process and craft of screen printing the Year of the Maker. So we produced a small video for you to see.

If you want to get your hands on a planner, then you can purchase them here. So get making and creating the things you want too. 2015 will be the Year of the Maker. Viva La making revolution!
