This class is for designers who want to bring their artwork to life in the form of a screen printed poster. We'll teach you the steps to convert your digital design to screen-printable color separations and along the way you'll learn how to create realistic textures and use halftones to maintain detail in your work.
If you don't have a design that you're prepared to use for the project, don't worry. We'll be providing the working files for one of our original designs that you'll be able to download and work with as we take you step by step through our process of converting that same design into print ready files.
If you do have an original design that you'd like to use for your class project, more power to you! You'll also be able to apply the same steps and techniques to your own artwork. (Note: we recommend using a basic design for the project as artwork with multiple colors or photorealism will increase the degree of difficulty.)
What You'll Learn
What You'll Do
Work from existing DKNG artwork or use your own artwork to add texture and create print separations that are ready for screen printing. You'll have the opportunity to share your progress with your classmates and follow along step by step as you prepare professional quality print separations.
DKNG is a full service graphic design studio with a focus on the entertainment industry. We work directly with bands, venues, promoters and a range of independent and corporate clients.
Dan Kuhlken and Nathan Goldman were both drawn to music and design at an early age, but didn’t combine their talents until 2005 when the duo founded a design studio with the goal of fusing these two creative avenues. The pair has found a niche in linking a personal and unique aesthetic to the world’s most talented musical artists.
With dynamically different skill sets ranging from fine art to film production, Dan and Nathan bring diverse talents and artistic perspectives to every project. DKNG strives to provide their clients with the image and recognition that they deserve. Their past clients have included ABC Family, MTV, Disney Channel, WB, IFC among others.
Classes revolve around completing a project and collaborating with fellow students to give and get feedback on your work. Use Video Lessons and the Project Guide designed by your teacher to complete your class project.
