  • Feature: the challenge – an intense 6 week period of project management and print production, the 2010 version was the first time that the College used 4 color process through out the publication, matte stock for the text was used for the first time as well, the change in stock and ink color was particularly appropriate given the co-ordination and presentation of the daily and topic grid information and the use of 4 color throughout the education sessions.
  • National Sporting Library & Museum Exhibition Catalog
  • Feature: This project displays the stunning and elegant use of high gloss UV coating.
  • Feature: an excellent use of the strike through varnish technique to accentuate the dull/gloss effect without having to make special coating plates, apply dull varnish with a regular printing plate to achieve the detail (photographs and other graphics to have the gloss effect), a full gloss coating is applied, the non-dull varnish areas are glossy and the areas where dull varnish was applied remain dull because the gloss coat dulls down as it cures, the dull/gloss effect is particularly enhanced when a gloss stock is used.
