Studio Work

Creatives just can’t stop creating!

When you least expect it, at all hours of the night and all across the globe – Halifax to Vancouver, Mexico to England, Texas to Toronto – Someones are producing work in the studio. Our studio exists on-line as a place of collaboration, it exists in our letterpress room, it exists down the road over a cup of coffee at Jetfuel. 

You'll find examples of some of our favorite work for arts organizations, non-profit agencies, and some of our own Sideline projects in the portfolio, below.


Posters for Arts' Sake

Posters and broadsides produced in the Someone studio over the past 60 days, capture and present creative ideas and images. Recent productions include a poster (now available) commemorating Marshall McLuhan's centenary, two broadsides in the someone:water series, a poster promoting the jazz accomplishments of Laila Biali, and a literary broadside celebrating two authors' dramatic poetry Throwdown in Ottawa!

The Card's a Keeper!

Not a bad way to stay top of mind, and remembered in the crucial moments, by ad executives, creative studio directors, art directors, and marketing creatives everywhere! Touchwood will get noticed, and their cards, produced at Someone, with deeply impressed letterpress in two coiours on one side and flashy, shiny thermography on the other, will be touched, talked about, kept, and even left around on the desks of the recipients – front and centre, as conversation pieces. Check out the story here.


Foster Child Play

Alex Napier of Island School Group came to Someone in the summer of 2010 looking for the creation of a large typographic poster that would stand out as something completely unique and cut-through.

Printed from a piece of cardboard cut on an angle, and mounted directly onto bed-plate, the texture in the pink background block was created by the flutes within the cardboard, delivering connotations of hand-made and industrial. The type: one of Someone's largest wood type with hand set Jefferson Gothic. Take a look at the full story here.


Sending Thanks

During the Fall 2010, Someone moved 20000 pounds of type and presses from the downtown east side of Toronto and two additional presses from a dank basement in Caledon Ontario, to assemble their fine printing, web and design studio, opening this season on Dundas Street West.

The Herculean adventure was supported by a creative and courageous crew. 'Thank you!' – uttered a thousand times, inspired these cards. We'll use them, and have made more to share – available online here.
