This project started as a self-initiated exploration in printmaking, and how classical artistic techniques could inform my design aesthetic. The final image was carved from a sheet of cardboard and hand printed on a press with oil based inks. The typography and figure in the composition were also hand cut and inked. The band ‘Telephant’ is a Portland based rock band with a moody and DIY sound. When I was assigned to create an album cover for class, I felt it was the perfect opportunity to create imagery with a different, more DIY process.
