Dublin designers issue elegant Toronto screen print
The latest addition to my ever-growing list of Toronto-related paraphernalia is this screen print from Dublin-based design firm me&him&you. Part of a series that also includes cities like New York, London, Berlin and Hong Kong, the print features the CN Tower, Scotia Plaza, The Gooderham Building, and...a Caesar. The idea is to pair iconic structures with iconic drinks to represent the ethos of a given city.
"Historically Irish people have emigrated to work all over the world," the designers explain. "Recently many of our friends and family have moved to Hong Kong, New York, London, Paris, Berlin and many other cities all over the world looking for work. We are lucky enough to have been able to visit, sample their signature drinks and be inspired by their new homes."
It's a simple idea, and while the addition of a staple drink might risk cliche, the minimalist design saves the prints from such a fate. City Screenprints are available at me&him&you's website for 60 Euros a piece un-framed. Here's a snapshot of the series.
