‘What’s Next?’ at KKOutlet

It’s been a great week here at KKOutlet with live printing and workshops from our good friends Peckham Print Studio, Studio Mothership, Bolt Editions, Heretic, Holly Bagnall, Danielle Watt, Chris Pell and Marcroy.
It’s sad to say today is the last day, come down whilst you can to view and purchase the great prints created all week long. Thank you to everyone who’s been involved, all the designers who contributed and all the lovely people who took the time to hang out with us. We had fun and we hope you did too. Feature

I can’t stop wandering around Telegramme Studio’s website at the moment, this EP sleeve design for Portasound caught my eye and I though it would be a real shame not to share it with you all.

Michael Lester

Michael Lester

A great screen printed narrative piece based on the short story ‘Leaning From the Steep Slope’, instead of stand alone images, each square layers and incorporates stages of the story. Striking use of hand drawn elements and collage.

Everything they make is flawlessly classy and unique, especially their business cards. A talented company and a blog full of inspiration worth checking out. Nice one guys.


Matt Lyon

Matt Lyon

Repeated patterns and colourful detailed typography make up the body of work of Matt Lyon’s website. As great as they are, it’s this moody delicate drawing that I fell for.

Originally from Armenia and now based in London, multifaceted artist Shahane creates these hauntingly beautiful prints through layers of experimental letterpress and print. Using unconventional methods and materials her pieces conclude to these deep textured wonders.


James Brown

Printmaker and Illustrator James Brown sure has a way with type, check out his bright posters on his website but don’t miss out on some of his lino print gems on his shop too.


Fever Zine

In a world somewhat obsessed with high definition, glossy pages and monochrome, sometimes it’s nice to find a damn good lo-fi zine to get your teeth into like this one.

Penguin Books Great Ideas

Penguin Books Great Ideas

Penguin created this range as a sweet selection of some of the most innovative and pioneering books of our time and they’ve had the covers designed to reflect the content. Each series has been designed with it’s own style and colour scheme. If you ever need inspiration for type and layout, this is a great place to start.


Benjamin C. Carr

Benjamin C. Carr

I’m really feeling these vintage styled, rustic packaging by Benjamin C. Carr. A mouthwatering selection of texture and elegance. Plus I adore the patterned type on the homepage of his website, go have a gander.


Supermundane

Supermundane

I highly recommend you check out Rob Lowe’s solo show ‘Details’ at the Kemistry Gallery. This hypnotic exhibition examines close up line work of his previous pieces, magnifying and simplifying to become bold, heavy, colourful new creations. The exhibition is on until the 30th of June, prepare to be mesmerised.


Micah Lidberg

Micah is one of the most talented people I know. It makes me feel a bit sick how good he is. He has a style which lends itself to almost anything, from fashion to paper prints. Just check out the repeat patterns and these awesome Lacoste shirts.


Emma Shipley

I have had a massive work-crush on Emily Hadden for a while now. The colours, the composition, the style, the presentation – are all top notch. She created a poster for one of our live shows and I would personally love to work with her on a collaborative project. I hope you like her work as much as I do, she is incredible.


Julien Denoyer

Julien Denoyer

These sassy moleskin books by Spanish artist Julien Denoyer are wonderfully charming and ever so simple. However as a 64 page book, even I would have trouble filling this edition with a list of appropriate names.

These bright, slightly trippy and often geometric t-shirt designs are the creation of London Illustrator Dooom. Not only do I like his work, I sure like his attitude too.


Samuel Esquire

Samuel Esquire

Samuel Esquire, part of Puck Collective makes these dark yet elegant illustrations and screen prints. I own several of his prints and frankly so should you.


Poster Roast

Poster Roast

I have a serious addiction to Poster Roast’s online shop of screen printed gig and tour posters. My latest investment was a naughty Melvins print from their 2008 tour. If you fancy seeing the prints in real life, keep an eye on the website for upcoming events. Alternatively the Black Heart pub in Camden hosts many of the metal genre screen prints on their walls, grab some beers and debate with your mates over which are the best.

What can I say about this guy, other than he is multi-talented. Just a quick word of warning…his website consists of MANY windows. Be prepared for cmd+w.

Jamie Reid

Jamie Reid

I am totally loving this guy’s work. You know that feeling of envy when someone has done a project that you wish you had done? Well… I got that feeling when I saw Jamie’s tidy riso prints for his glitch project. I want to collaborate with him!

This looks like a stunning show at Mother London which starts tonight and runs on until the 13th June. Get your bums down to the biscuit building to see an array of amazing two layer prints and more.


Boxer Beetle

Boxer Beetle

Ned Beauman’s debut novel Boxer Beetle is tantalisingly dark and obscenely clever. The cover alone is enough to persuade anyone in their right mind to purchase it and once you open it, there’s more beautiful design to be admired. Credit to Lorenzo Petrantoni for creating such a stand out cover, the winning entry for last years V&A Book Cover Illustration Award.


The Daily Torygraph

The Daily Torygraph

The power of the press is all well and good but the power of tippex and biro overshadows that outright here. A fine witty mind is behind this popular anti-media scribble fest that is The Daily Torygraph. From sniggers to belly laughs, flick through the front pages of the hand edited Daily Telegraph and read my short interview with the genius’ business partner. Feature


Ryca

John C Thurbin

John C Thurbin

He can only be described as a ‘bad-boy’ linocut artist and one of the best around in my opinion. Thurbin’s transition from illustration to linoprint is flawless yet bold. Also I get the feeling he’s quite into tattoos, I dunno, go have a look at his website and see what you think.


Two Times Elliott

Two Times Elliott

Creative agency Two Times Elliot have been producing some really nice Risograph prints for their self promotion recently. Tidy stuff all round.
