Post Mod Tone

I have been enjoying recreating 'old school' printing effects inspired by Post Modernism, Half tone, photocopy and overlays techniques to create a hand screen printed look.  The middle design I used minimal colour to be economical with ink coverage which was an aspect for many designers in the 80's when putting work into production but not an issue now as we take for granted the use of limitless colour with digital printing. But I am enjoying the constraints  of creating designs using minimal ink/colour, maybe more environmental too.
Today with the V&A 'Born to be Wild' textile group, we show are designs and vote which one are to go into the collaborative Swatch book, for everyone to Share - Print - Wear. Its going to be an interesting day!
