Hippocamp Studio

Hippocamp Studio produces original designs for print - usually for screen 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 that belief that what we say to one another matters.
