Beautiful Findings: CMYK Embroidery

April 24, 2012

Evelin Kasikov is a London based graphic designer that has taken her print design work to another level. In her school years she developed a new graphic construction based on the CMYK printing process but applying it into embroidery. Following the same principle, all her pieces are made out of overlapped dots of each 'ink' that construct the rest of the colors as the CMYK prints do.

The patterns constructed by each thread follow a certain direction that when combined with the others create a bigger spectrum of colors. It's a beautiful example of how things that we take for granted, as offset printing is, can be re-thought in an eloquent and simple manner. The following example is an experimental alphabet that's constructed out of overlapping letters in different inks.
