The infographic showcases all things ink, with beautifully designed typography and bursts of colour. Olivia explains: "Unless you’re familiar with printing inks, you’ll never really know what it’s like to work with a substance that’s so deliciously messy and colourfully versatile. It’s distinct - from the smell, to the texture, and to that nagging, worrisome desire to taste the freshly mixed candy pink off your pallette knife."

The bursts of colour are a lovely creative touch
