On Tuesday, August 6, thirty AIGA Baltimore members and friends stopped in to Baltimore Print Studios on North Avenue ready to put ink to paper. Each attendee was given opportunities for some hands-on tasks, including hand pressing coasters, running off posters on an antique machine, and even putting together a cut-and-assemble mini Vandercook press.

Kim and Kyle, the proprietors of Baltimore Print Studios, were on hand to give demos, talk about background history, and answer attendees’ questions. While they do offer printing services, the studio also teaches classes in both printmaking and screen-printing and is open to the public to rent by the hour. Featuring four 75-year-old presses, screen-printing materials, and drawers (and drawers) of woodblock type, they definitely cater to the do-it-yourself designer!

Did you miss the event? AIGA Baltimore members Justin and Giordana were gracious enough to take a video demonstrating how to use the Vandercook press.

Designers often talk about the ability of design and design thinking to spark positive change, but it’s just as important to understand how design has been used as a tool to negatively impact culture and community. The Art of Oppression is a new Blend series dedicated to reminding us to view design with a critical eye into the perspective and agenda behind it.
