Design Marathon (Day 1)

I am starting a silly self-initiated project called “Design Marathon – 30 days of peace and design”. For the upcoming month I will try my best to upload at least 1 cool thing on my blog every day. This challenge is just to practice my skills and to explore different techniques and software.

Let’s get started. The first thing:

Type - 字体

Shazam! I’m happy to announce the new project we made in collaboration with Muei san. Deeply inspired by the works of Switzerland sculptor Markus Raetz we decided to erase a very solid boundary between Eastern and Western typography.

For this project we tried a lot of innovative media that we never used before. Everything started in MAYA software (a very big thanks to Sanzhar Murzin who helped us to revise my Google SketchUp attempts, make sure to check out his personal website sanjmur.com it’s going to be up and running pretty soon), later on we continued with a 3D printing, after the 3D form was ready we went on and made a quick photo shooting and proceeded to photo editing. Alongside with photos a various types of visual identity has been created including business cards, posters, letter samples and a short video.

How to silkscreen a T-shirt

Recently I’ve got the first silkscreen experience while making a T-shirt design for the Capoeira hangzhou group. The process is really interesting especially with the Chinese worker’s creativity tending to cut manufacturing costs by any means. Have a look…

Printing our design on a transparent plastic paper.

Preparing the “silk screen”.

Drying.

After the wax is completely dry we need to “burnout” our design from the waxed silk screen. On the picture: The guy is putting our design and the screen on top of UV lamps.

Then he said: “Actually this kind of light is a bit dangerous so I’d better cover the whole thing with my coat… ”

Washing out the wax from the “burned” spots. Making a stencil…

White spots – no wax.

Using the pressurized water jet to reveal a very thin lines.

They use chopsticks to stir the paint.

Drying again and covering unwanted spots with a sticky tape.

Defining the place of our design on T–shirt.
