Bianca Giani Signature Journal – January 2019


In October 2018 we got a request for letterpress cards from a student at University of Johannesburg, Bianca Giani. The timing could never been better: for months we were working on the new imPRESSed website, and Signature Journals were part of the new look. Bianca bravely accepted the challenge and her artwork features on the first ever Signature Journal, enjoy.
