Lino Block Printing

Client: Personal Project

This Project required several failure trials to get to the end result, we were testing how good we can carve on LinoBlocks while still maintaining the original shape of our designs. ​ ​ ​ The topic of this project, was a postcard that represents Kuwait, and I made it about the coffee in Kuwait, therefore, I designed two different designs. The first one was, unfortunately, a failure as the shapes were too small to be carved out, however, I bounced back with the second design, which ended up being a success. It's all about control and preciseness. And I had to find a hack that would allow me to mirror the design on the lino block so that it would be carved out, and I used an iron that prints the ink from the paper onto the lino.
