Sunday Sweets

Aesthetic Apparatus is one of our favorite design/screen printing shops around. This dynamic duo from Minneapolis do a lot of amazing design work, but they are most known for their gigposters.

And they are sweet!

Screen printing is a unique medium. There are a number of restrictions that make designing for screen printing a unique challenge. The guys from Aesthetic Apparatus understand this very well and their designs utilize the strengths of the medium to amazing effect.

They get a lot out of only a couple colours by the way they layer parts of the images and use the natural transparency of the inks to their advantage.

You can see more of their work here:

And if you are want to see a fun video of them printing a sweet poster for the movie "The Shining" check this out!
