Split Fountain a-rama..

22 Feb

Just before Christmas the great team at DesignWorks in Auckland came over to visit the studio.  Their Christmas Project was a series of 12 postcards, printed using a ‘split-fountain’.  Basically two inks are run for each card, which gradually merge through the print run.  As the trusty Heidelberg has oscillating rollers, you can imagine how quickly you have to work to take full advantage of the split, before it becomes a third colour!  Here’s a sample of the results.  Definitely one of the most fun jobs ever!
