DESIGN INSPIRERS

Brian and Sara Turner have been making art for decades. In 2003, they started Cricket Press from a tiny studio in their home of Lexington, KY. Together they have created their own unique and quirky vision of the world, translating their characteristic illustrations through the hand-printed processes of letterpress and screen-printing. When they’re not ruining their clothes slinging ink on paper, Cricket Press also spends time on numerous design and illustration projects, as well as making various hand-printed goods and hand-crafted items.
