It’s no secret that most designers like silver ink, a color that provides us with more “oomph” without having to break the bank. The use of this color usually follows one of two styles: subtle, elegant and sophisticated, or loud, bold and in your face.

These promotional posters were made for the 5th Annual MSU AIGA Graphic Design Student Show. The show is named Pix(elated!) so I wanted to design something bright, fun, and pixelated. Pixel art was something that I had always wanted to try, so this was the perfect opportunity. I printed the poster along with my teacher and other classmates, and then the posters were sent to several universities across the United States.

If you are new-ish to silkscreening, or you are thinking of using metallic inks don’t stop reading now—Dave has some insightful information to share.

It was a great learning experience designing something with pixels. It was very meticulous, especially since I also designed a full color logo to go with the poster. Also, It was my first time to print with silver ink, and I didn’t expect the ink to dry so fast while we were printing. We had to spray water on the screen several times to unclog it.
