Design

The Open Press, a project started by Matt Greenwell, head of the Art department at UTC, and Paul Rustand, the creative director at Widgets and Stone, a local design company, resulted from their mutual passion for hands-on creativity. They are both comfortable using the tools and techniques of the digital age, but at the same time they both have a yen for a time when everything moved a little more slowly, and the work produced had the immediately recognizable stamp of an artisanal, made by hand product. Not necessarily perfect, but(for them) beautiful in its imperfection.
