Build, Thank You, Limited Edition Screen Print


Designer: Michael C Place
Thank You Limited Edition Print
Northern Edition range

This MADE NORTH limited edition print in collaboration with Michael C Place, Build, is part of our Northern Editions print project that looks at the differences between the north and south of England. We ask leading northern designers to visually explore ’northern-ness’, this can be personal ideas, thoughts, recollections or responses to more stereotyped images or concepts.

At the heart of the project is a desire to explore graphically the thoughts and feelings of the north, both positive and negative. Is there a difference between the north and south of England, if so, what would it look like?

Thank You

One thing that I miss (and is a difference North to South) is that people don’t generally say ‘Thank you!’ to the bus drivers as they get off.
It’s a little thing I know, but something I think is really nice to do.
