The world famous 1in12 Club celebrates 30 years of ‘Liberty, Equality, Solidarity’ in 2011 thanks to its establishment way back in 1981. As part of these celebrations we were asked to put together a badge set as the ‘merch’ offering at the Club has been a little thin on the ground for a while now (no bad thing in some respects). We designed and made the badges (using a steam powered Macintosh Color Classic) and then printed, scored & stapled the 3 badges (one for each decade) together in a nifty little package late one evening.
Not only are there badges but there’s also an anniversay (organic) beer called “Revolting Ale“, that was brewed by the fantastic Little Valley Brewery, we’ll have more details on that soon. Sadly the plan to letterpress the labels fell through due to time constraints.
Response has been fantastic — some people have been buying two sets — one to open & wear and one to keep as a souvenir. Crikey.
Badges: digital design & print on 100% recycled uncoated stock.
Packaging: Biodegradable/acid free paper bags. Cards printed in 032 Red & Black on GF Smith Colorplan Bright White 270gsm in Univers Bold Condensed 36pt & Helvetica Regular 14pt.
Finishing: Scored and then assembled and stapled by hand(s).
