We visited the wonderful graphic designers from Reykjavík Letterpress on a Monday afternoon at their studio in the city center of Reykjavík. They had just finished their exhibition at the Culture House during Design March and opened again, although very tired from the days before, their doors for us.
Hildur Sigurðardóttir and Ólöf Birna Garðarsdóttir founded their studio in 2010 after the financial crisis has given them a bit more time. They decided to move away from the established means of graphic design to rather specialize in one of the oldest forms of printing.
As the only traditional letterpress printers in Iceland, they established their own line of products with all kinds of wonderful goods like business cards, hangtags, notebooks, greeting cards, invitations – always with a fun twist.
