We’re winners!

We’ve been sitting on this for a while, so we’re excited the cat is finally out of the bag!

Mohawk Paper has announced the winners for Mohawk Show 12, and the Smile poster we produced for London-based design shop Present & Correct has been named winner of the Special Category: Strathmore division. The poster was printed in two color combinations on Strathmore Writing Wove Ultimate White 130# Cover (now part of Mohawk’s new Strathmore Premium line).

There were only four Best of Show winners and four Special Category winners, so we’re in impeccable company here. We’re especially excited since there was no Mohawk Show in 2011, so this entry was selected among two years’ worth of entries.

We love working with Neal from Present & Correct. His witty designs are always at play with color, shape, and elements of eras gone by. His clean aesthetic is a natural fit with letterpress, and we’re always happy to see what P&C is dreaming up next. Congratulations Neal, and thanks for letting us be part of the team.

Check out all the Mohawk Show 12 winners on Mohawk’s Felt & Wire blog. Interviews with the winners will be posted here starting in September, and we’re looking forward to reading them all.
