Perfect planning is required for upscale projects

Little did the team at Preston-based Lustalux know that when a call came in from architect consultancy C4 Projects in 2015, a simple query about window film would be scaled into a complex and multi-faceted project that would go on to positively impact the lives of thousands of children.

Q&A: Chris Kingston Director, Fingerprints Design and We Fly Drones

Makeover puts Monster in a starring role

Hollywood Monster had a lot to live up to including its name. The signage and graphics company recently underwent a monster makeover with a rebrand. “Rebranding – extensive or otherwise – is not always easy, in fact it is never easy,” recalls the man who led this one, managing director Simon McKenzie.

Q&A: Daniel Reed Designer, The Cafeteria Studio

Sheffield-based Daniel specialises in design and typography, and his enthusiasm for all things print-related is such that outside of his day job he works on other projects and has created four new typefaces including Incido, which is made up entirely of straight lines (see daniel-reed.co.uk).

Print enables inspiration to take flight

You can almost touch them. In fact you can almost feel just how satisfying it was to make them. Admiring this year’s Power of Print cover’s origami cranes, you’re instantly connected with the appeal of crafting something, of holding something unique, tangible and tactile in your hands.

Power-packed: brands battle for on-shelf impact

Killer app: H&H Reeds plays a blinder and nets top Carlisle FC programme

Saturday 3 October was a momentous day for fans of EFL League Two clubs Carlisle United FC and Barrow AFC, marking the first time the teams had met since 1964. A suitably special programme was required for the long-awaited Cumbrian derby and Carlisle United turned to longstanding printer H&H Reeds to assist.

60 seconds with Palmer Publicity Services

PPS was set up in 1989 (the year sales director Katie Palmer was born) by her parents Noel and Lesley in the garage of the family home. PPS began by offering photography and marketing services and as the business developed, brought in graphic designers, invested in printing equipment and decided to bring everything in-house to offer the full service.

60-seconds with Oasis Graphic

Oasis Graphic started out in 1988, based out of a lockup in Hillingdon. The firm’s client list, staff numbers and equipment soon outgrew those premises as the business branched out from exhibition graphics into new areas that involve “creating branded environments”.

The writing is on the wall

All is not as it seems. That graffiti on the exposed brick of the reception waiting room is not really graffiti. That painting of the overflowing foliage of a forest on the meeting room wall - it's not a painting. And that apparently marker-pen-scrawled cartoon character on your friend's lounge room wall was not done by his own fair hand. Not that you should feel foolish for being taken in, however, for wall stickers are a lot better than they used to be.

Staying competitive in a material world

Let's say you drove your shiny new BMW into a river and instead of slowly sinking to the bottom, it performed as well as the most expensive of million-pound super yachts. You'd be pretty pleased, right? You had a boat and a car all in one. You'd save money and double your capabilities and the potential going forward. It would be rather exciting.

60 seconds with Pressision

Pressision began life almost 20 years ago. The firm’s vision and mission was born out of the frustration of a group of graphic designers who “didn’t have a print production house that would experiment, try new things and be willing to say yes and then figure a way to make it happen”.

60 seconds with Showcase Creative

After working in graphic design for a number of years Andy Wreakes and brothers Jack and Paul Batey (left to right in picture) spotted a gap in the market for short-run presentation folders. In 2013 they re-branded as Showcase Creative to reflect the growing range of products offered.

Q&A: Clive Bramble Sales executive, The Colchester Print Group

Clive has been involved in the print and packaging game for 43 years, and has five more to go. During his time he has held 17 positions in nine different companies.

Label novices must learn to roll with it

There's no denying it: one of the biggest stories to emerge from last year's Drupa was that digital and packaging finally seemed serious bedfellows. But what may have surprised some, was the realisation that digital's relationship with label printing actually goes back much further than with, say, folding cartons. A decade and a half longer to be precise.
