SEGD Denver hosted a hands-on screen printing workshop at Ink Lounge last Thursday night to put the experience into EGD. Our friends Stu and Nikki provided an evening of printing and learning and taught us about the world of serigraphy or screen printing, a technique many designers have encountered in both environmental and print design projects.
Each of the 25 participants printed their own custom sketchbooks featuring a quote by Milton Glaser with original artwork provided by Denver co-chair Amanda Hurley's staff at Ad Light Group. Additionally, everyone had the opportunity to print custom t-shirts featuring famous Denver icons with original artwork by Denver co-chair Zach Kotel. Everybody had a blast learning about screen printing, pulling prints and customizing their sketchbooks for what turned out to be a wonderful makers' night.
Thanks to our partnership with Archetype, we were able to print some additional t-shirts for raffle prizes and giveaways at future events. Stay tuned for our next event, coming this spring.
