Typeface: Mavis
For Like Ever design ©2004-2006 Village

i ordered this poster from village last thursday and it arrived in the mail today! (that's some of the fastest online processing i have ever seen!) checkout their website though, they showcase some really great typefaces. the poster has been featured in both domino and elle decor magazines and ever since i first spotted it, i've imagined it hanging in my little computer/work nook at home. this is what the village has to say about it:

"We are so thrilled that this poster has found such a kind and avid audience. It was designed in 2004 as a part of Tracy's MFA thesis project in the Graphic Design program at Yale University. It is a simple phrase she has always loved, and magnifying it on paper seems to change its meaning from a sometimes throwaway saying to a larger hopeful statement. Putting it down on paper was an attempt to make something fragile and fleeting permanent. Tracy hand screen-printed the first edition in grey ink in a very limited run with the help of a classmate. Last July, we decided to print the artwork in pink and red to celebrate the launch of the Village co-op. In a way it was meant to be a love letter to each other and a celebration of the exciting and scary prospect of a new beginning."
