Everything about this piece is super slick, from the client work within to the spot gloss varnish to the puffy white case holding the book. Factory gives orange real sex a-peel.

Project Description

Factory Design Labs creates a printed portfolio piece annually — this being the 10th volume we wanted to create something a little bit fancier then we'd done in the past — previous versions have been self-cover perfect bound editions. So, this time around we went hard-bound and upped the page count significantly. We wanted the piece to give people a glimpse into the brands we work with, and what working here is like. The case was created as a wrapping of sorts that would protect the book during mailing, and hopefully people would reuse it as either a laptop case or carrier of other goods.

Production Lesson(s)

We created a custom fluorescent ink for this piece — and we learned that that's harder than it sounds. Getting the perfect blend of our 'brand orange' orange, with the bright pop of a fluorescent turned out to require more ink wells in the printer than we had available — in the end, the color was not as bright as originally planned, but fits perfectly with all the rest of our materials, so in actuality it was a happy accident that it wasn't as bright as we originally wanted, because then matching the orange zipper color on the case to the fluorescent would have proven impossible.”
