Thirty graphic designers, including Julian House, Tom Hingston, Graphic Thought Facility, Foundation 33, Mason Wells, Eine and Robert del Naja, have taken part in a poster-art project, Ilikeprinting, organised by Artomatic. The aim of the project is to celebrate the culture of printed graphics and each designer was invited to use a variety of materials to create a distinctive and desirable image. Original A2 screenprints, priced at £55, will be available in limited editions at Artomatic’s store, on its website, www.artomatic.co.uk, and at its Selfridges concession from 15 May to 15 July.
