Chicago Printer’s Guild – The Normal Studio

The Normal Studio constructed three acrylic, laser-cut trophies for the honorees of the Chicago Printer’s Guild Publisher’s Fair in 2016. The CPG Publisher’s Fair provides a platform for artist and the public to exchange and interact with printed matter, and print enthusiasts.

The trophies’ shapes were inspired by the early workings of the visual identity of the fair. The Normal Studio and Sonnenzimmer collaborated on an editioned silk-screened poster that contained these three forms. They began as amorphous ink drawings, and later inspired the structure of the three-dimensional trophies.
