Local Universe // Scream Printing

This week I screen printed my posters, wanting to get in the workshop before the rush of everyone else wanting to get their posters done. Thinking I was very organised and I was actually but my first day of printing was a little bit of a nightmare. It was y first time screen printing after just having done an induction and I was nervous about using the equipment but very excited to give it ago and see how my work would come out.

Local Universe // Ready To Print

After scanning them in I edited them a bit for example filled in some white areas black that I hadn’t bothered to fill in with marker.

Inspiration // Crispin Finn


Crispin Finn is a design studio based in London and Margate. The studio is made up of  Anna Fidalgo and Roger Kelly and they create illustration, design, screen prints, stationary, ephemera and assorted wares.

I was drawn to their style when we were shown a piece of their work during our briefing for our next project which is on posters and prints and I couldn’t help but fall in love with their use of typography and bright, bold colour. They have an almost vintage style with a contemporary, clean, digital (and print) twist. They’ve even done some work/products that I have seen out and about and had been interested in. I absolutely love their imagery and will be a huge inspiration for our new brief.
