When Life hands You Lemons

Take the Proverbial started life as a small student project for Gill McColl’s final graduation show; creating a series of typographic, tongue-in-cheek modern proverbs for a modern world.

Although inspired by the digital world we live in on a daily basis, Gill also loves traditional print production methods and vintage type, especially letterpress. She thought that it would be interesting to take traditional print processes and employ them in a modern way to reflect the new proverbs.┬áThe project was a surprise success and she’s been selling the artwork, cards and homewares ever since!
