Playroutine on Tumblr

By | Tumblr | No Comments


From today on, we’ll feed the new Playroutine Tumblr site with memories from the past, some unfinished works as well as ongoing activities, so have a look at this newest endeavour here and spread the word (i.e. images)…

One can also find this thing at the very end of each single page near the VIMEO icon. But we’re too lazy for more time-killing social media stuff right at the moment, so don’t expect any Facebook activities in the near and not so near future.

Southwest Midcentury Architecture

By | Architecture, Desert, Inhouse production, Tucson | No Comments

Before the work on the next Playroutine animation will start, we just decided to get a bit deeper into the highlights of Midcentury Architecture here in Arizona. So today the former “Tucson City Hall” entry in the work section was renamed to “Southwest Midcentury Architecture” as several new scenes will be added during the upcoming weeks.

Our work will maybe be part of the Tucson Modernism Week Exhibition during October 2015. Just have a look at the Tucson Western Savings Bank, added today.

The Itinerant Printer visits Tucson

By | Graphic design, Letterpress, Tucson, Typography | No Comments


Today at the Book Art and Letterpress Lab at the University of Arizona we met Chris Fritton, who travels as “The Itinerant Printer” across America throughout this year, visiting letterpress printshops in about every state. Chris sees his mission not only as an adventure in printing (he uses only the collection of type, cuts and plates of the places he is visiting to keep all on-the-road-prints individual) but also in connecting people, sharing information and capturing the spirit of the analog revival.

This was a very nice and inspiring meeting, so be sure to visit your local printshop when he’s around. Of course there’s lots of beautiful print souvenirs to get for fair prices too.
Right now the route leads him through the Southwest, going up the West coast next – just check the route on his website.
