Designs made with Cool Overprint Effects

Classic printing techniques such as screen printing rely on old school techniques to mix inks to form a colourful design. One of those methods is to directly overprint two colours on top of each other as a subtractive mix to provide additional hues alongside the primary ink colours. Typically this effect is produced at the printing stage, but similar effects can be replicated digitally in Photoshop and Illustrator. This showcase features 30 fantastic designs where the classic overprint effect is prominently used, resulting in interesting blends of text and images.
