2018 W.A.C Poster
Every year we’re charged with the increasingly-difficult task of coming up with a World AeroPress Championship poster that’s not only befitting of the ever-bigger competition itself, but that also trumps the poster from the previous season.
To pull it off for 2018, our Sydney co-hosts, Single O, enlisted the help of Kentaro Yoshida -- an artist they’ve worked with previously, who’s also penned work for the likes of the Pixies, Blink-182, and Vans. We capitulated, figuring, if it’s good enough for Frank Black, it’s good enough for us.
The artwork features a be-tonged hand gently lifting a chargrilled AeroPress from barbecue to a waiting slice of white bread, while a bottle of ‘Adler’s Own’ tomato sauce jiggles and spurts in excited anticipation, prompting one commentator (my five-year-old, wise beyond her years) to posit “uhh, you’re actually not meant to cook those things”.
These posters are A2 in size (that’s 42 x 59 cm, or 16.5 x 23.4 in for those playing in imperial), and are printed on 250gsm Ecostar silk stock, individually packed in tough cardboard tubes.
