Letterpress Poster & Frame

From the left, "OUR OATH", "BOY'S DAY", and "No Phone". New designs are on the way as well.

I got the idea of Letterpress Poster & Frame when my son was born, and wanted to have traditional Japanese carp-shaped streamer that can be displayed on my shelf.
May 5th, "Boy’s day", is a Japanese national holiday to celebrate children’s growth and happiness. On that day, "koi-nobori", or the carp-shaped streamer is raised on a flag pole outside their houses. How parents do care about their children have not changed from the past; however, it is more difficult to decorate a big carp-shaped streamer nowadays because of a change in living environments. It is same for me as well, we were not able to raise it outdoor because of its size. I started designing this poster, thinking it will be much easier if it can be displayed on the shelf or in any place, in any home.

Thin, delicate brass frame is produced by precision metalworking company in Kyoto. It was very difficult to create a thin frame without a back plate, we’ve developed a method of fastening 4 corners with small screws (applying for design registration).

Oak stand is produced by furniture manufacturing company in Higashi-Osaka. The design motif is from the leg of a screen-panel which are often seen in Japanese-style houses. The stand is made out from the solid oakwood. Oak stand is antiqued finish, please read here for details before purchasing.

You can hang on a wall, using the hook included.

Hanging like a ceiling mobile looks beautiful too.

Pure brass changes its color as time passes. As you touch more with your hand, the color nicely settles. We chose brass material hoping you will enjoy a change in the color, as with your children’s growth.

Poster: No Phone
We used an old-style technique, letterpress design, to express about smartphone which is an example of modern technology. The design is drawn with a technique called hatching, which is often used in old dictionaries or encyclopedias.

On the poster, 5 promises are stated: 1) To always be honest, 2) To never forget to smile and say thank you, 3) To trust and help each other, 4) To value each other, and 5) To never forget the importance of the past, and believe in the future.
