Lead Image

Since Cerovski in Zagreb was the print sponsor for our Brand Nieuwe Conference we knew we could ask for something crazy and they would be able to do it. So we did: Instead of doing a regular square or rectangle program, it’s a parallelogram that echoes the angle of the logo. (More on the logo and overall identity here.) Then each cover has a different letter from the logo laser-cut on it. There are 25 different paintings and drawings that repeat in the print run, so each one looks different. The covers were printed on Colorplan, from our sponsor G . F Smith, which has a crazy range of textures (they call them embossings) and we chose a “Morocco” embossing that made the covers feel like an old canvas. At the end of the post I’ve included a sped-up video that first explained the idea to Cerovski; I’ve found that doing a mock-up and then a video is the perfect way of getting your idea across, especially with more complicated projects.

Project Description

The Brand Nieuwe Conference is a two-day event organized by UnderConsideration, focusing on the practice of corporate and brand identity — a direct extension of the popular blog, Brand New. The conference consists of eight sessions each day offering a broad range of points of view with speakers from around the world practicing in different environments, from global consultancies, to in-house groups, to small firms. This is the program given to all attendees.

Production Lesson(s)

Working in millimeters (vs. inches) is way harder than it seems and figuring out weight papers in gsm instead of lb is confusing! If you are planning on using Colorplan with digital printing be advised that it requires a special treatment/coating for it to perform its best. (We used untreated Colorplan for the conference badges on a Kodak Nexpress and it printed just fine; so you might be okay without the treatment).”
