[ Linocut technique]
Here a small peak into my logo design for Sharp Sharp, not the final version, but one of many attempts for sure. I really wanted to create a logo by hand, since Sharp Sharp will be all about healthy hand & home-made treats ^_^
So I decided to try a technique that I hadn’t been using since High-school, it’s called linocut.
A description for linocut as found on wikipedia:
” Linocut is a printmaking technique, a variant of woodcut in which a sheet of linoleum (sometimes mounted on a wooden block) is used for the relief surface. A design is cut into the linoleum surface with a sharp knife, V-shaped chisel or gouge, with the raised (uncarved) areas representing a reversal (mirror image) of the parts to show printed. The linoleum sheet is inked with a roller (called a brayer), and then impressed onto paper or fabric. The actual printing can be done by hand or with a press.”
Within the following weeks, I will experiment a bit more with different designs & typography for the logo. Not only because I am not satisfied with the logo so far, but also just because it’s fun!
