The School of Visual Concepts invites you to the 2018 Steamroller Smackdown, where up to 20 teams of top designers print gigantic posters using a steamroller in lieu of a traditional printing press. This year’s poster theme is Linking Seattle’s History — a collaboration with HistoryLink.org

In conjunction with the South Lake Union Block Party
, join us on the basketball court on the corner of Denny Way and 9th Ave N. (adjacent to the beer garden) to see teams compete for the title and bragging rights of SVC Smackdown Champion.
Along with watching the pros print, you’ll also get a chance to print a custom poster of your own featuring vintage wood type, image cuts, and proofing presses under SVC's printing tent.
Ink, linoleum, and a five-ton steamroller. What more could you ask for?
