Print design is nothing but a subset of design. It is a form of visual communication which is used to convey information to the audience through intentional aesthetic design printed on a tangible surface. A design can be considered print design if its final form was created through an imprint made by the impact of a stamp, seal, or dye on the surface of the paper. To give our Circle Members the experience to learn and enlighten themselves about this traditional art form, Rajasthan Studio curated a special workshop and invited Rupal Sharma.
Rupal Sharma is a Textile Designer and she likes to explore different mediums and techniques of art and design. She believes in the fact that every design makes someone happy, and that very thought drives her to work and explore more, it’s a never ending journey with a lot of ups and downs and the best part about design is that there is no bad design. Every design is unique in its own way.

Then she spoke about what is the motive of all the designs & began with the sketching. She had made a rough design and then showed the attendees how they could go with it. She then made another design so that she could make it easy for the attendees. After she was done with the design part she began with the colouring part.
She then spoke about the different mixing of colours she was using and the combinations the attendees could use to make their design different and unique in itself. Later, she first added the based coat and later added with texture to the design after she was done with it she started with the printing part.
