Printmaking

Studying printmaking allowed me to explore various media, to work dimensionally, and to stretch my creative wings.

Letterpress book

Letterpress Book

The Project

Create a book using letterpress with a minimum of 10 pages.

The Process

For this project, I drew illustrations and went on to create my own polymer plates to be printed on a letterpress, using two colors.

The Result

An accordion style book with a debossed design on the cover.

Screenprinted geometric design

Transformation Part 1

The Project

Create a screen printed design that expresses the concept of transformation.

The Process

I explored geometric forms, including models of shapes that could be constructed, transforming from flat shapes to dimensional ones. I pushed the concept further by creating textures using pentagons inspired by a model template I found.

The Result

Starting with a foldable geometric template, I silkscreened a design composed of pentagons with the intent of building the model. The flat design printed as a gradation of color on a solid orange sheet was so pleasing, I stopped there.

Three-dimensional Geometric Shape

Transformation Part 2

The Project

Create a screen printed design that expresses the concept of transformation.

The Process

I built paper prototypes to select geometric shapes that would be well suited to be printed on. To contrast with the bold shapes, I experimented with color and texture to see how they might transform the appearance of the geometric models.

The Result

Building on the idea of geometric shapes, models were constructed into three-dimensional shapes that were then transformed into a modular mobile design, allowing the configuration of shapes for further transformation.
