Danilo Franco x Evolution of Printing

We were delighted when THE Danilo Franco had contacted us to do a silkscreen for one of his projects.

Besides being one of the best fashion designers the Philippines has to offer (and the most humble), he is also an INCREDIBLE fashion illustrator. We love the way he comes up with inspiration for his work as there’s always a story behind it…

Who knew that the banana leaf print we silkscreened for him…

Would be transformed into this brilliant origami-like vest…

Do Us a (Wedding) Favor

He loves motorcycles. She’s one-eyed and living it. We placed the two together and came up with a logo for this entertaining union.

IMG_6006The logo was part of Guada x Inaki’s customized bandannas. Here’s the bigger picture…

Eyeing the fun details…

These made-to-order bandannas were given away as wedding favors during Guada x Inaki’s European union. We’re sure they were especially useful for wiping those tears of joy/tears for fears as they said their “eye-do’s”.

Most people are familiar with the bandanna as a fashion accessory such as a head/neck scarf or fabric bracelet (and to wipe off sweat). Here’s how some of our favorite international photographers and photo editors wear their “Eye-Do’s” on their forehead…

Other uses for the handy bandanna… After eating, use it to wipe your hands. How about as aromatherapy? Simply apply a few drops of essential oils onto your bandanna. Keep in your bar or closet. Need a little pick-me-up? Douse an energizing scent (such as citrus) mid-day to revitalize. Lavender at night to help you sleep and eucalyptus to battle the sniffles. Don’t forget to cover your sneeze with it… Bless you!

Then there are fans of “Furoshiki” (the Japanese way of wrapping things) which uses fabric as carriers for their packed meals, cookies or even a bottle of wine…

It’s All in the Mix!

So we had this idea for the ultimate made-to-order design + silk-screening service… Rather than cutting and sewing two or more patterns together, wouldn’t it be great to come up with prints that incorporate those patterns into one screen? Your final product would be an interesting and unique mix of prints and patterns to create one quirky design…
Collection 2 from head-to-toeQuick-sketching and watercoloring makes “work” fun and is always the initial stage of our evolution of printing…

Then follows the computer rendering…

So were you able to guess what our subject matter is here? The answer is stated on the caption.

Finally printed on canvas, our friends at Bowery were very eager to experiment with our fabric designs and played around with the concept of leather-trimmed tote bags…

Do these Evolution of Printing original designs tickle your fancy? You may contact us at evolutionofprinting@yahoo.com if you’re interested in ordering these designs on canvas.

Summer to a Tee

We love silk-screening on t-shirts! We got it down to a tee. So when a friend commissioned us to re-design an existing statement tee to give as gifts to her friends and co-workers, no time was wasted on getting back to the drawing board. “Re-designing” to us is just like starting from scratch.

The original design…
Coffee

 

Summer is here! The sun is out! But we’d rather stay indoors and silk-screen!

Our friend couldn’t resist and chose the two colors! We wish she could have given us one too!
