novum 11.20 »creative paper«
There’s no denying we are passionate about paper. And when it comes to »creative paper« then our imaginations start to run riot. There are just so many aspects to cover with this fascinating material: be it unusual visual treatments or surface finishes, all kinds of conceptual approaches, and even the smell of different kinds of paper. Whenever we choose creative paper as our featured topic, we know it will be a tough job to select just which projects and studios to present.
Because paper offers up so many diverse aspects, we have put together a colourful bouquet for you in our novum+ section this month. From sustainable packaging and paper art to artful printing and bookbinding – this issue shows what being creative with paper really means.
Together with our partners we eagerly rolled up our sleeves and produced something special: the paper we chose is Stardream Rosequarz from Igepa, whose wonderful quality lends itself perfectly to finishing that really pulls out all the stops. On the outer envelope the hot foil Luxor 396 Orange from Kurz sets up a charming contrast to the delicately shimmering pink of the paper, on the inside cover pages we used a rich green (Luxor 390). But why stop when you are enjoying yourself? As well as foil finishing, we also used embossing and stamping. The artistic interplay between raised and recessed elements is all down to the skills of the experts at effektiv Druck+Veredelung.
The cover of the November issue features some rather unusual combinations, but, as we all know, opposites attract!
All this and more awaits in this issue of novum!
