risograph lab

Part of the Department of Visual Studies at St. Edward's University, the Risograph Lab is an Austin-based print lab focused on print research, publication and education. As a Designer in Residence at the lab, I have been collaborating with faculty to conceive yearly programming and fundraising efforts.

 

workshops

As part of our fundraising efforts, I have designed and lead workshops to educate students and professional designers about Risograph printing. During these 4-hour introductory workshops, participants learn the basics of working with the Risograph as they complete a project that involves creating gradients with traditional cut-and-paste techniques. The outcome includes creative and colorful posters that participants trade and take home.

risograph lab lecture series

During the fall of 2017, proceeds from our workshops directly funded the Risograph Lab Lecture Series. This was a 3-part public lecture series that I co-organized and hosted to highlight local and national designers focused primarily on print and publication design.

Featured lecturers were Lindsay Starr, Molly Sherman, and Kelcey Towell.

personal studies

Various Risograph prints and projects completed while working at the Risograph Lab. Among these projects includes an educational field guide focused on the golden-cheeked warbler and it’s environment within the Wild Basin. The generous grant provided by the Dr. Allan W. Hook Endowed Wild Basin Creative Research Fund allowed for the purchase of a metallic gold Risograph drum as well as enough French Paper to create 275 5x7 booklets.
