WHY_DELS is the future. We collectively commissioned 7 artists and designers to create artwork inspired by lyrics from DELS’ album. The Over It & Co crew then teamed up with the amazing silkscreen printer Sam from Mula to help us transform the artwork into silkscreen prints. The amazing print creators were – Charlotte Hanlon, Josh Sutterby, Us Design Studio, Kieren ‘DELS’ Dickins, Eat. Sleep. Work / Play, Jennifer Crouch and Mark Robbins. We’ll be launching an online print shop in the next couple of weeks so if you couldn’t make the event you’ll luckily be able to purchase one or two or all of the fantastic GOB SHOP silkscreen prints.
During the printing mayhem we were also planning the bestest sweet shop to put them in. Our vision was to display the limited edition silkscreen prints in a room filled with 400 helium balloons, more sweets than your inner child could dream of, DELS’ t-shirts / cd’s / limited edition vinyl and free alcoholic beverages. Hit read the rest to see the rest of the images to see if we succeeded in our GOB SHOP mission.
