About me

Evelin Kasikov is a London based artist and designer. She gained her MA in Communication Design from Central Saint Martins in 2008, specialising in typography and editorial design. She then set up her own studio in London, working mostly on book design and illustration projects. Her approach to craft is analytical and firmly rooted in her graphic design background. She uses both digital and craft methods in her work, combining the two in a unique way. Evelin’s best known technique, CMYK-embroidery, is a handmade printing process where cross-stitch replaces halftone screens. Her stitched typographic illustrations have appeared on the pages of Financial Times, WIRED and The Guardian to name but a few. As a book designer she has designed both covers and complete books for many leading publishers such as Laurence King, Bloomsbury and Granta, as well as private clients. Alongside this, she continues to make experimental self initiated artist books. These labour intensive works usually span over several years and continue to explore the oppositions between the analog and the digital.
