Artist:

Kate Stroud: Artist & Designer
Joanna Kambourian: Visual Artist & Printmaker

About This Project:

‘Postcards from Home’ is a collaborative design project between Kate Stroud and Joanna Kambourian. The duo will design a typographic response to being home bound, creating and working in isolation but still connected to each other and the community. The artists will produce two coinciding outcomes, a mural and a screen-print, within each artists home studio.

This dynamic collaboration will be delivered through multiple processes, demonstrating creativity done from a distance and how social distancing and home isolation has inspired artists to find creative solutions to make art and keep connected to one another and the community.

Through social media people will be invited to participate and follow the artists’ progress online through regular posts. A digital wallpaper of the final design will be available for anyone to download and we will have a limited edition of printed postcards to send through the post as a means of connection during this unprecedented time.
