Alan Kitching

Alan Kitching is a Graphic Designer that specialises in Letterpress typography. His compositions are carefully considered and playful, and he brings the words to life. I have a real facsination for letterpress typography and I like that even though it is designed to produce limitless copies, each one is different, personal and unique. His work spans topics from tackling world issues, to advertising, to playful phrases.

Here is a link to his page at Debut art. I tried to find his personal website, but I don’t think he has one. If anyone can shed any light on this, please do!

Here are some examples of his work:

This is a beautiful piece which draws you in to reading the information. Very thought provoking.

The shape of the lettering in this poster gives an impression of the scale and grandeur of the venue.

These pages are as sweet as a kiss. Lovely effect of transfered ink – this is a good example of how an accident can be a great effect!

The overlaid symbols make mathematics the focus of this arrangement.

The man himself, surrounded by his work.
