Evelin Kasikov is an artist and graphic designer best known for her CMYK cross-stitching. Her technique involves converting dot screens to cross-stitch screens and printing onto paper, marking it for embroidery. The process, developed during her time at St. Martins, results in a unique form of handmade printing. Her designs have been seen within the pages of major publications including Wired and The New York Times, but the Printed Matter project is the fullest realization of her vision.
Throughout the three-book series, Kasikov entertains and explores the union of traditional handcraft and textile work with modern design and technology. Her own CMYK technique is an important part, but this is more importantly a global look at graphic design and visual communication throughout the ages.
