The latest window exhibition of Fred Aldous on Stevenson Square invites closer inspection. Describing themselves as an assembly of like-minded makers, artists and designers, PrintMade are the creative force behind the playful installation.
The work in the window features the handiness of Hannah Gibson & Tim Isherwood. Both inspired by the landscapes they inhabit; they have produced printed geometric patterns which evolve into a colourful, layered environment of their own. Housed in a series of boxes passersby can explore the work through a variety of peepholes.
Step inside the store and you’ll come across a range of handmade, one-off books, produced by PrintMade during the process of making the exhibition.
Hannah can usually be found working of commissions and personal projects involving illustration, textiles, screen-printing and digital design. When she's not doing that, Hannah teaches Graphic Design at Salford University.
Tim has worked as a freelance designer, artist and typographer since graduating from Stockport College in 1994 and also teaches on the Graphic Design course at Salford University. His specialism is in the area of typography, using the medium in the production of artworks for exhibit, illustrations for commission, and typeface creation for freelance and research based purposes.
PrintMade will be on display until Monday 9th October.
