O lympic, Games, London, 2012, medals, summer, gold, silver and bronze
– just some of the words banned from unauthorised public use in conjunction with London 2012 Olympic Games.

But instead of causing headaches, these stringent rules have provided the inspiration for the project set at New North Press' monthly introduction to letterpress workshops.

Above are five group's outcomes exploring the Elephant in the Room theme, while strictly adhering to the Olympic Committee’s stipulations. Those who took part were from various walks of life and had an array of political and emotional opinions on the subject, which were discussed and incorporated into the final designs.
