It’s very easy to get caught up in only working with pure riso colours, especially in the beginning, and it can be challenging to know how to mix the colours you want. But there are so many colours to be made, it‘s an almost infinite amount. In this project I experimented with mixing different colours to find the “perfect green”, helping students to see that they are not limited by the riso colours as they are unmixed, and that there is a lot more to be discovered. 

I am a graphic designer and illustrator who lives in Bergen, and works as a risograph technician, teaching design and art students the process and technique of printing with a risograph, at Faculty of fine art, music and design (KMD), UiB. In May 2020 I finished a bachelor degree in visual communication at KMD. I love the ocean (even though I am afraid of it), collect old photographs and books, and enjoy drinking tea and having a cat on my lap.
