About


We are a print collective and riso studio based in Portsmouth. We are both graphic designers with a passion for print. Marie who works under hellomarie is an award winning graphic designer, people of print member, freelance designer and university lecturer teaching graphic design. Darren who works under luckydarren is a graphic designer, illustrator and total print din who regularly teaches graphic design and print.
We design, make and sell prints, pins and stationery online and from our studio at The Hotwalls Studios as well as our stockist Aspex Gallery, Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth.
 

We love to teach so we also run workshops in Risograph Printing, Letterpress, Bookbinding, Book Design, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop.

We are have lots of big plans and feel very lucky to have a beautiful studio that backs onto the beach that houses our risos, letterpress, bookbinding equipment and heat presses as well as a tonne of hot inks and fancy paper stocks.

We've got so much work to add to the website but we will get there! To keep up to date with our work, experiments and processes follow us here:
