I’ve been fortunate to have worked with talented craftsmen – screenprinters – block makers – binders – mudflap makers – zeroxwallahs – fellow designers – and my small team of designers over the last few years. Somehow, the ‘process’ has been most satisfying.

Most often the end result has turned out quite different from what I begin with in my head. Accidents, mistakes, spontaneous discoveries in the course of work/research and jugaad – they bring a certain value that cannot be planned or designed. The process contributes a great deal to the outcome. I guess thats what is exciting about independent publishing.

One of the major reasons why I’m looking forward to ZINE PRESS – the PROCESS of working collectively. A beautiful spontaneous mess.
