Great Design is Everywhere

This is wrapping paper from the Northwest Maritime Center in Port Townsend. I brought some home with me from our vacation and have been giving some thought to how I could apply it to my own work.

One possibility is to translate it into high contrast black and white using photoshop, print it out on a transparency and use the transparency to burn a photo-emulsion stencil for screenprinting. I could print the image in any color. Think I'll experiment with this today...

  1. Wrapping paper can be wonderful! After my initial delight at the colors and shapes, my thoughts ran to the analytical: Two views (top-down and profile), how often does it repeat (not quite enough data to tell), how many colors did they use (and I know you know much more about the overlays needed) - because it's really a simple concept overall.
