Mike Meyer’s Morgue Files

In our sign painting workshops, Mike Meyer encouraged attendees to start a ‘morgue file’ consisting of lettering and layout inspiration gathered from packaging, magazines, etc. We tapped into Mike’s vast collection to produce Morgue File: Book 1 and Morgue File: Book 2 using a mixture of processes including Riso printing and hand stamping.

Key Responsibilities

  • Project managing the entire production process from the scanning of material to overseeing the printing.
  • Managing distribution, combining direct and retailer sales.
  • Commissioning a new printer for the third print run of Book 1.


Tea break reading! So many ideas already.
