Risograph Artprints

For this personal project I turned one of my digital illustrations into a Risograph artprint. I chose two colors: orange and blue, to keep the prints as minimalistic as possible. The aim was also to push the technique to its limits.

When looking closely at a Risograph print, the idividual dots created by the master can still be seen.

Sandra Staub. Excerpt from the master thesis Pale Pink Paper Press.

The Risograph is a stencil duplicator manufactured by the japanese Riso Kagaku Company. “Stencils are made from a thermosensitive film exposed to heat, that burns the image in form of little holes into the stencil or master. The master is wrapped around a drum inside the machine that spins at a high velocity, therefore allowing the ink to pass […]. When looking closely at a Risograph print, the individual dots created by the master can still be seen.” (Staub, S. (2018). Pale Pink Paper Press. Zürich: Zürcher Hochschule der Künste (Thesis Master in Design).
