Hippocamp Studio

Hippocamp Studio produces original designs for print and includes the feminist print project Hippocamp Cards.

Hippocamp Cards was created to provide more authentic, more generous, less normative ways of sharing our lives with one another - of celebrating, supporting, and challenging each other. Established in 2012, it is an ongoing experiment in openness by means of ink on paper.

Hippocamp Studio is a larger effort to build collaborations with fellow designers and artists. It is also a place for freelance projects with friends and like-minded organizations and business.

A.J. Barks is the Chicago-based founder and designer of Hippocamp Studio. Her route to printmaking wound its way through a background in communications and gender studies, following the belief that what we say to one another matters.
