We don’t know who said print was dead but we’re 100% sure they weren’t a designer. So to all you anti-printers out there, stop trying to push your paperless agenda on us and instead marvel at the creativity on display at Veritiv Canada’s uVU Awards – an annual show highlighting the very best in print and design.
We’re truly honoured that the uVU team asked us to create the identity and collateral for this year’s show. Our no-holds barred, punk aesthetic was inspired by the zine culture of the 90s. Something of a mash-up between handmade and high-end, combining photocopy, spray paint and screen print techniques with polished printing by McAra Unicom.
For those of you like us who enjoy geeking out over print stocks, this year’s Call for Entries is printed on Monadnock Astrolite PC, Domtar EarthChoice Opaque and Neenah Astroprint Orion. Sadly we had to forgo the Moon Unit Zappa Superfine this time around.
And speaking of Call for Entries – it’s now open! Time to get your best print and design work the recognition it deserves. Deadline for submission is June 8th 2016.
