One of my first printed project in the London College of
Communication was to visualise electronic music in a graphic
design way and apply it to a appropriate material.
With the technique of "screen printing" it is not only possible to
print white colour, but also that it stays on any surface under one
condition: The substrate has to be flat in order to print the ink
through a screen with a squeeze through.
My aim was to apply my typographic design on to vinyls and vinyl
covers independent from their structure or textures. I even tested
other materials such as "mirror-paper" where ink was suppose to
stay really difficult, but once it was dry, it did stay perfectly.
The only disadvantage was reliablility of the ink on the vinyl
surface when you scratch it. Not suitable if you would like to play
the vinyl again but for the cover it was a full success.
