Evelin Kasikov is a graphic designer specialising in print and editorial design. Born in Estonia, lives and works in London. She began her career in advertising but it was not until 2006 when she started to experiment with craft during her MA at Central Saint Martins. Evelin Kasikov is the author of CMYK embroidery, an original handmade printing technique she began to develop at St Martins.
Her approach to craft is analytical and firmly rooted in her graphic design background. She uses typography, grid systems and design techniques to challenge the preconceptions of embroidery.
Her embroidered illustrations have been commissioned by the likes of The Guardian, WIRED and The New York Times, as well as published in design books and magazines worldwide. Alongside stitching commissions she continues to design books for Bloomsbury Publishing and combine client work with experimental studio projects.
Evelin is truly one of a kind artist and we are proud to share her work for your inspiration here on theddi.
