DIY Screen Printing

For a while now I have been wanting to get off the computer and get my hands dirty with some DIY screen printing – and recently the opportunity presented itself.

I decided to do a little series of simple typographic posters – just white ink printed onto cardboard.

First I designed the posters, printed them out, then traced / cut the letters out of a sheet of contact (for covering books) using a scalpel. I had cut stencils out of other materials before (acetate, cardboard etc) but never contact. It worked well enough – adhered nicely to the cardboard – but I’ll probably use acetate next time so that the stencil is more robust and has a longer life.

Then I took my (very old) silk screen and squeegee, and some white fabric ink, and printed the posters.

I achieved that rough / worn look by accident – purely because the screen I used is so old and has lots of dry paint stuck to it, so the ink didn’t cover the area as well as you’d expect. But I’m really happy with it.

New websites live

Be Glad

We were commissioned to design this poster as a gift to the kid’s of our church. The brief was: ‘something pretty colourful and cool as opposed to all the options on the market at the moment!’

We added cute and humorous and came up with this …

 

New Work

We’ve just added some new work to the portfolio – a collection of logos, marks and icons designed over the last few years.

Much Needed Update

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been nearly nine months since my last blog post!

My excuse is that I’ve been busy, but in truth I’ve mostly just been slack (and focusing on other things).

Let me give you a brief visual update on some of the work I’ve been doing of late. In the grid below you’ll find websites, logos and publications.

Typographic Verses

A couple months ago one of my designs was featured on typographic verses.

I originally designed the piece to be projected onto a wall for an easter church service. Anyway, here it is…

Truly this man was God's Son

Busy, busy, busy

We’ve been super busy lately, hence the lack of activity on here. So I thought I’d give a quick update on some of the work we’ve been doing…

The last few months have brought plenty of variety, including design work for (from top to bottom, left to right): magazines, jerseys, websites, corporate collateral, social media, plus some photography and heaps more.
