Evelin Kasikov CMYK embroidery | Handprinted Alphabet

I was fortunate to discover Evelin Kasikov’s cmyk embroidery letterforms project at this years London Design Festival – Check out more of her work at http://evelinkasikov.com

Thanks to Evelin for exclusive images of her current ‘Handprinted Alphabet’ project

Info:
These lowercase sans serif letterforms consist of four CMYK colours and 26773 stitches. They are printed with needle and thread instead of ink. First, a 4-layer halftone grid is created. Instead of dots, crosses are used to create halftone pattern. As in traditional printing, the screen for each colour is set at a different angle: Cyan 105˚, Magenta 75˚, Yellow 90˚ and Black 45˚. The screen frequency for original stitched letters is 3 lines per inch. Each letter consists of equal blend of CMYK colours, Cyan being printed first and Black last.
