A refreshing new take on the graphic slogan trend that we’ve seen over recent seasons. Amy Woodhouse returns to traditional screen printing techniques to give bold graphic type a softer, craft appeal whilst maintaining a super modern look.

Fascinated by the beauty of typography, Amy Woodside uses sans serif fonts to screen print word plays and abstract letterforms. The New York based artist is a poetry enthusiast and enjoys experimenting with phrases, extracting them into separate letters and piecing them back together in playful compositions. She also combines screen printed letters with spray paint and hand-written words in a punchy yet minimalist colour palette.
