Debossing is when an image (logo, text, etc.) is pushed down into the printed sheet.
Winning us Print Finishing of the Year Award 2016, this yearbook showcased some of the best design in the country. A year-long programme, Irish Design 15 explored, promoted and celebrated the best of Irish design. To really show off the brilliant work inside, we worked with the design team to develop a technique to allow the book to be opened flat. Beautifully designed, it was bound with a sourced fluorescent orange thread and came in a case with a blue metallic foil. The logo was debossed into 2mm greyboard and mounted onto the covers.

G-Mac Apparel is US Open Champion, Graeme McDowell’s clothing line. To reflect the brand’s ethos of superior craftsmanship, performance fabrics and a modern vintage style, we used a variety of techniques. For the look book, we used an Antique Navy Blue stock, with a debossed clear foil blocked logo on the cover. Inside, full colour photography was printed along with Pantone Spot Navy ink. The book was then thread sewn with a drawn on cover, mounted onto an outer cover.

A new addition to Dublin’s iconic St. Stephen’s Green, LXV is the city’s latest commercial real estate development. To strike the balance between contemporary and classic, we used bright colours and gold ink throughout. It was important that the end user could really look at the images, particularly the floor plans, so we created a Singer sewn bind along the spine to accommodate this.
