Three words from the judges summed up the work of Pureprint: “Quality, quality, quality”. And one word sums up where it landed the printer in this year’s category: winner. Fantastically vivid artwork and photography defined print for Boodles’ Poetry of Landscape jewellery brochure.
Meanwhile the Graphic Thought Facility Nowness book included a hand-wrapped jacket with a unique touch: Takeo Tant was an untested paper for digital colour printing but gave a wonderful textural contrast. The printer in Uckfield, East Sussex also put forward work for Miles Aldridge (after Cattelan) and Of Tea and Horses, also incorporating oriental influences; the Japanese folds added weight and no image show-through. “Perfection. There really is nothing else you can say about this entry,” said the judges.

“The Sainsbury’s job in particular showed innovation at its finest, delivering great results,” said judges of an entry also including the Cushman & Wakefield Concrete Box, CBRE Bus pitch and Gameboard. The supermarket pitch was made from 100% post-consumer recycled materials to an extremely tight deadline. The recycled element was key to the pitch and involved painstaking sourcing and testing to ensure it printed to the highest levels.
