Designer in Focus - Bespoke Letterpress Boutique

1893 Chandler and Price - Letterpress

I mentioned a few posts ago, that I had begun the search for designers who possess the skills needed to successfully juggle the many aspects of small business and everyday life. Today I would like to introduce to Alischa Herrmann from Bespoke Letterpress Boutique, who creates the most beautiful hand printed couture invitations and stationary right here in her studio in Brisbane.

Alischa, a highly established Graphic Designer, foot treadles and hand prints her gorgeous designs one at a time, on her antique 1893 Chandler and Price Letterpress. Her range includes bespoke wedding invitations,and glorious stationary and paperie and is fuelled by her belief that letterpress should never become a dying art form.

Now Alischa may already be known to some, though only a newcomer to Brisbane, she is taking our little town by storm, with her gorgeous range but is now also creating gorgeous prints for the likes of Kylie Johnson from Paper Boat Press, an established Brisbane designer. Above is a sneak peak at the new Bespoke wedding collection - a gorgeous range of couture wedding gifts.....lovely!

She is also a graphic design teacher and a home renovator, and an all round nice girl!
Now, that is one impressive juggling act as far as I'm concerned! So hats off to you Alischa, one clever and crafty lady taking on the world of the letterpress one treadle at a time!
