Pirrip Press

Founded in 2012 by Alexandra Higlett and Georgina Hounsome, Pirrip is a small illustration, design & print studio, specialising in silkscreen printing. We work on a variety of projects; big and small, commercial and non, and each work independently as illustrators and designers.

We like to tell stories, and know that things have more authenticity if there’s research, thought and a narrative of some kind behind them. So there’s always a tale woven in to what we do, whether it be a book or graphic story or a one-off screenprint. We’ve worked collaboratively on several book projects, notably, The Island, which we hand printed and bound in situ as part of an artist’s residency at Enblanco gallery in Berlin. And Light and Sight – an illustrated anthology we worked on as artists in residence in Kristiansand, Norway. We then returned to print the books here in Bristol at Spike Print Studio, where we are members (George is also on the board of directors).

Alongside larger projects like residencies and self publishing books, we work on shorter run zines, illustrative prints, and other creative endeavours. We have a small shop in Bristol’s arts quarter, selling our prints, stationery & illustrated books. Along with occasional plants, tshirts and pottery.

George is currently working on her first full length Graphic Novel, to be published 2018, and Alex is working on commissions, ceramic incense burners and some other little whimsies.
