Silkscreening Galore

This blog post is a tad late, but we updated our project section to feature our latest project: silkscreening!

I can’t exactly remember the exact moment we realized we wanted to try silkscreening, but like most of our projects this silkscreening event was a swirl/tornado of our creative energy.

We first searched for local places in the Bay Area we could learn and actually do silkscreening, but ultimately chose to order a silkscreen kit from Japan. This decision narrowed our timeline a bit because we now only had a few months to not only think of a design, but also draw and order the design before I went to Tokyo in November, 2016.

ずっと挑戦したみたかったシルクスクリーンで、このたび新たなME(め)グッズを作成しました!シルクスクリーンの仕組みやどうしたらできるのかなどを調べ始め、友人にレトロ印刷のスリマッカを教えてもらいました。デザインを3種類考え、最終のかたちをイメージしながらオーダー。2016年秋、Mの日本旅行のついでに運んできてもらいました。それから2回のシルクスクリーンディを経て、トートバッグ3種類、ポストカード、手ぬぐいが完成しました!!

それと同時期にMUNI/BARTポストカードの作成/注文をしたので、秋は意見の交換からデザイン作業まで盛りだくさんな日々でした。すべて無事に手元にとどき、わくわくしたのを昨日のことのように思い出します。ぜひ、それぞれのページで写真等ご覧ください :)
