A good print design should encompass originality and beauty along with flawless technical execution for it to make perfect sense. This is what we strive to give to our clients at The Artwork Club.
The thought process to achieve the perfect print for your brand or product, should be a straight forward and inspiring experience with a friendly relationship formed along the way.
Discover > Define > Design > Deliver - These methods are not rigid protocols to be followed unthinkingly, but frameworks that can and should be adapted for each project we undertake.
DISCOVER - initial contact, general observations, creating a project space. > DEFINE - brainstorming, discuss and defining ideas to be developed, initial fast visualisation. > DEVELOP - Designing process, reviews and alterations, physical or digital prototyping. > DELIVER - final approval, deliver of files, quality control.
Florals, geometrics, animal prints, conversationals, ethinics, textures, abstracts, checks, stripes, camouflages, paisleys, traditional or hyperreal, frugal or frivolous, simple or intricate, engineered or allover, delicate or bold, hand painted or computer generated, monochromatic or the full spectrum of 16 million colours at once - and everything in between. If you can imagine it, it's real.
We believe every textile has its own story to tell, that print design can be the most powerful way to tell it, and that above all, if you going to print any kind of surface it should deserve an incredible print.
