Letterpress cards (check) job hunting (check) good jobs around (no)

As mentioned previously I have been letterpress printing (or rather embossing) my own business cards. I produced them an the Albion Press at the University of Reading using no ink, no electricity, and with offcut paper. A truly environmentally friendly job.

People seem to love them when I hand them out, but unfortunately there just doesn’t seem to be many jobs around in the sustainable/social-design/info design world. I have loads of experience, but only want to work for a company with rock-solid ethics. Why are they so hard to find?

This is going to take a while, but I am loving. I found the Linotype Futura collection at the department and got busy with some ego-alphabetica… Do you think having all Ks is too much? More pics on my Flickr. More pics to come after tomorrow.
