It’s been great fun to create this mini collection of striped prints. We visualised it as a short story of stripes featuring four characters. The colour theme is navy / blue and of course we added some sidekicks (purple and green) to the mix to keep it interesting!
We have been experimenting with Risograph printing for a while as we love the color vibrancy. There is only a limited number of colors available and inks can only be mixed by printing on top of each other, which creates the unique ‘Riso’ look. The limitations of colors has been our inspiration to create brand new collections of 1, 2 and 3 color patterns. Some of these new prints make their way out into the world as our studio’s seasonal greetings. Happy Holidays!
Colour proofing is a big thing at Kapitza studio. When designing at the screen, we know exactly how we want the colours to print. We literally ‘see’ them. So, when a colour proof arrives in the studio, we are always curious to see how far apart the result is from our imagination, or how close. As we have extensive experience specifying colours for printing, the results are usually really close and just need a bit of tweaking. These proofs are for one of our new ‘mt masking tape’ designs ‘Symbols’.
It's great to finally see our exclusively designed prints on paper! For this commission of art prints, we worked closely with the interior architects to complement the interiors of a newly build apartment hotel in Munich. The prints add a splash of colour and interest to every room. We developed a concept for the motifs, colours and grouping of prints in every apartment, and the outcome is stunning. The prints have left our studio this week and we can't wait to see them on the walls!
