Make with Mohawk Campaign
Make with Mohawk takes your best ideas from PDF to printed object.
We all have an idea sitting on the back burner waiting to take form. An idea so niche, indulgent or impractical we just can’t justify it — until now.
Make with Mohawk gives you an opportunity to pursue your passion project, try a new printing process, and submit your work for recognition by your peers.
“The new Make with Mohawk campaign does two things,” says Chris Harrold, SVP Marketing + Creative at Mohawk, “it offers creatives the impetus to make and rewards great work with the opportunity to make more. In that way it’s a kind of virtuous circle of making.”
The Make with Mohawk campaign is a multi-faceted on + offline activation made up of three parts:
- Make with Mohawk Print Sets
- Make with Mohawk Printshop
- The Mohawk Show
Make with Mohawk Print Sets
The Make with Mohawk Print Set series is designed to emphasize material + process by featuring the work of nine visual artists on carefully selected Mohawk papers paired with three distinctly different printing processes. Throughout 2019, this series will show:
- Print Set 01: Mohawk Superfine + Risograph: Available Now
- Print Set 02: Mohawk Via + HP Indigo Digital Printing: Summer 2019 Release
- Print Set 03: Crane’s Lettra + Letterpress: Fall 2019 Release
Make with Mohawk Printshop
A new online resource that challenges designers to create their own work using the same papers + processes shown in the Make with Mohawk Print Sets. Throughout 2019, The Make with Mohawk Printshop will highlight three unique “Maker Missions” with the challenge to bring your work to life using Risograph, Letterpress and Digital printing. Each printing process will be offered in three form factors: prints, cards and matching envelopes.
The Mohawk Show
An opportunity for designers to be recognized for their best work on Mohawk and be rewarded with Mohawk Maker Grants. The Mohawk Show is a call for entries driven by a simple idea: Great work deserves to be celebrated and rewarded. The Mohawk Show invites designers to submit projects throughout 2019 for review by a panel of six judges from differing design disciplines. Our goal is to help great makers keep on making with seven unique “Maker Grant” awards which recognize great work with the opportunity to make more.
“As a creative community we are overwhelmed with inspiration daily, but many of us feel short on something just as important: Opportunity,” says Caleb Kozlowski, Creative Director at Hybrid Design. "Inspiration without making is like unrequited love: Inspiration gives us direction, but it’s not enough—we need to participate in the graphic conversations we admire. The Make with Mohawk Campaign is an answer to this struggle: It pairs inspiration with the opportunity to freely make something—taking control back from the brands, directors, and cultural gatekeepers that often constrain us, and handing it back to the designer.”
Let Make with Mohawk take your best ideas from PDF to printed object.

Chicago-based visual-performance artist Nick Cave is known for his Soundsuits—vibrant pieces made from thrift store materials that can be worn like alien skin. They transform the wearer, obscuring race, class, gender, and individual perspective.
