Screenprinting

 
 

Screen-printing

Promotion of an Activity.

 
 

How Can an Activity Be Promoted? The focus of this project was to promote an activity that may not necessarily be popular or regularly done. I worked on creating a promotional system for screen-printing with Faith Kim.

 
 
 

A Visceral Process

We decided to make a series of posters that reflect the visceral senses involved in the process of screen-printing. Because it is a very physical activity, we wanted to take its unique movements and sounds and capture them in our work. Our system would revolve around tag-lines, each representing a unique element of the process of screen-printing. 

 
 
 
 
 
 

Audience

We targeted college students that had a background in design/art but were not familiar with the physical process of printing. Especially for design students, printing can be a pain, so we wanted to get people to get themselves involved in screen-printing and how fun the entire process can be. Faith and I decided on a visual language that was fun and explanatory; we also played around with 3D visuals to discourage the fact that screen-printing is flat and boring.
