Screen printing is all about the process, some artists prefer to be more experimental with their work, whilst others strive for the perfect line and composition that takes a while to get the hang of. Graphic designer Adrian Schnegg is quite the oposite. Having undergone an apprenticeship at a printing studio for four years before studying a Bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design, silkscreen has always been an important part role for him as a designer.
Schnegg presents his thesis that he completed last year: ‘Errors in Print’. For two months Schnegg screen printed 355 black circles, the idea was to use the advantages of a manual printing method to experiment with effects, textures and marks. A circle shape printed on white paper, centred in the middle of each page was chosen as the format to create a sense of unity whilst still showcasing the differences in experimental processes.
The book makes a debut with misprints and goes on further to forced printing errors, such as printing(squeezing) with different materials, and ends with pressing the screen on paper. A quote from Schnegg states “this book shows the different possibilities in silkscreen with only one pattern and a clear progress of misprints. But they shouldn’t be seen as mistakes, more as the character of a printing method.”
