We were very excited to print this double sided poster for the recent Wild Beasts‘ tour, not only did we get to do a fade in 5 colours no less! We also got to speak to a studio favourite, designer Jason Evans.

Loligo is an independent screenprinting studio based in De Beauvoir, London. We love screenprinting by hand, from the tactile nature of the prints to the way the ink sits on the paper, however, the real beauty of screenprinting this way is that the slight variations give each print a distinctive handcrafted feel.
Here at Loligo we seek to experiment with the medium of printing transgressing the boundaries and traditional notions of print in an age of untouchable digital media. We do this though self initiated work, commissions, exhibitions and collaborations with other artists. These can be seen in the projects section of our website.
Using our experience and love of screenprinting we also provide an affordable print service to clients nationally.
We’re looking for an experienced screenprinter to come and help us out at Loligo HQ on a freelance basis, download the Job Description for more info.
Produced for Poster Roast at the Camden Crawl we especially liked Graham’s see through red glasses and reminisced about queuing up at Our Price to buy our very first album, Blur obviously.
We have just finished this very lovely print designed especially for Loligo by image maker Ryan Todd. Printed on 540gsm Monadnock stock in 4 colours and small enough to pop in the post and brighten up someone’s day. This is the first print we have commissioned at Loligo and we hope to do many more in the future.

I did a little screen printing on this litho printed poster for chums THIS IS studio, the back exactly mirrors the front so my imense registration skills came in very handy!
It was the greatest of pleasures to print this charming 2 colour print for illustrator extraordinaire Al Murphy, I had to stop a few studio colleagues from sliping one straight off my drying rack into their sketch books… he’s selling them on his site so go get yourself one from there.
I just completed this nice little print for fellow N1 resident Katie of whatkatiedoes.netI was very pleased with the yummy colours I mixed up and was thoroughly hungry afterwards. You can by the print from Katie’s etsy site and make sure you check out her blog too.

I recently collaborated with the lovely Holly Wales on a series of pieces for an exhibition of large-format posters at Fallon, Great Titchfield Street . Holly selected some images from her very large collection of photocopies, handed them to me in A0 giving me free range to experiment with printing over the top. I used this as an opportunity to print in a very analogue way by exposing cut our shapes and images hand drawn directly on to the acetate on to the screens. I then played with different transparencies of ink, colour blends, the contrast between matt and glossy inks as well as overlapping shapes from one sheet of paper to the next to suit the brief.

We had the pleasure of printing the fabric pieces for several samples before they were made into five wonderful outfits by designer Lu Flux. As usual we used eco friendly water based inks which suited Lu’s green credentials perfectly.
