    Stoëmp: Dice Pool

Beautifully printed letterpress dice from Belgian designers Stoëmp

Posted by James Cartwright,

Belgian designers Stoëmp specialise in limited-run, hand-crafted pieces of print that utilise only the slowest, most intricate processes available to contemporary designers. This means they’re pretty adept at dealing with screen and letterpress, taking great pride in creating packaging and ephemera that makes the most of these tactile techniques. Take this recent piece of vinyl packaging for Cupp Cave’s Dice Pool for example; inspired by Bryan Christopher Baker and executed by Dimitri Runkkari, the entire cover design is created by letter-pressing plastic dice to create a beautifully vivid geometric pattern. Simple, effective and very, very cool.
