• Midshire masters printmaking with RISOTTO

        • Midshire attended a RISO print making workshop, this month (11th April), held by its Glasgow-based customer RISOTTO Studio.Taking place from 23rd March until Sunday 13th May, the workshop has seen the company take over Gallery 1 at The Lighthouse, a Glaswegian hub for art and design, architecture, and creativity.

          Since its founding in 2012, RISOTTO has used a RISO Digital Duplicator to create pieces of art and design, including: calendars, apparel, stationery, posters, and weekly planners. RISOTTO offers print services on over 80 different types of recycled stock, from 65gsm newsprint to 350gsm card, and 80gsm classic white to fluorescent pink papers. 

          Gabriella Marcella, RISOTTO Studio Director said, “as soon as I saw the kind of work that can be produced on the Risograph I was hooked on the process. My whole business is built around it, it’s ability to layer inks to create vivid patterns with spot colours is so distinctive and cannot be replicated on any digital print process.The Risograph uses a toxin-free soy-based ink that dries naturally without needing heat like normal printers, so its impact on the environment is very low, and we always recycle any bits of waste.”

          Midshire supplies RISOTTO with the 21 standard colour inks currently offered by RISO, including its metallic gold ink. Midshire’s RISO expert Daniel Bridgeman also sources new and second-hand drums for the studio and provides service and support for the machines they use.

          Daniel added, “I have worked closely with Gabriella and RISOTTO for over four years now, during my 30-year tenure providing RISO print solutions, I have truly never met anybody so hardworking and invested in the brand. Gabriella’s work is amazing, it’s been featured by world famous brands and the house print is so eye catching, it’s a real testament to what the RISO can do.”

          Gabriella’s work has been seen in the collections of Urban Outfitters, Stussy, Dr Martens, Puma, Liberty London, and Bloomberg.To book tickets for upcoming RISOTTO events, or to find out more about the kind of works offered, take a look at the company’s website here: https://www.risottostudio.com

          As part of Midshire’s RISO Roadshow competition, the company is calling all artists, illustrators, and graphic designers to trial a Risograph for an entire month. Running from May to October, Midshire will loan a RISO Digital Duplicator (Risograph) to six designers for an entire month, who will compete to keep the device by creating inspiring, imaginative, and artistic projects. The completed entries will also be featured in a sample pack of RISO designs.
