I enjoy designing for screen printing. Because the ink is either there or not there, the design is limited to only two colours[1], usually contrasting, with no intermediate tones[2]. However, rather than feeling restricted, I like the fact that it forces you to be bold. You can revel in the stark contrast and aggressive outlines, safe in the knowledge that this is a medium which favours bold, striking designs over subtlety.

[1] Unless different stencils are used to build up multiple layers.
