‘The graphic expression of the splash has often been underestimated,’ says Arctic Paper, launching its ‘Amber book of splashes’ catalogue. They’ve obviously never seen the wall outside our local around closing time.
Nonetheless, Arctic offers – for your ‘inspiration’ – a multi-coloured panoply of starbursts and typographic splats. Choose from the Cow splash, the Punk splash (pictured) and the Esther Williams splash.
Younger readers may want to ask their grandpas about that last one. It’s like a ‘top bombing’ advertisement, only svelter.
