Combing my love of lino printing with graphic design

Updated: Jan 16


Combing my love of lino printing with graphic design, I’ve recently design the logo for a local manufacturer of printing presses and inks Hawthorn Printmaking Supplies. They’re a lovely family owned business based in Murton, ion the outskirts of York. It’s where I buy all my printmaking supplies from too.


I start by sketching ideas, transferring these onto lino before cutting the design and then printing it. I then scan the image in, cleaning it up and work it through into a Vector illustration in Adobe Illustrator. This enables the designed to be used at any scale without loss of resolution. I design several layout ideas with different combinations of fonts to show to my client. From here it’s a few final tweaks from feedback and creating print and digital ready files.

I’ve been designing adverts for up and coming print fairs and am currently designing their product catalogue.
