Just the cover makes the difference

Here's a job that is worth a look at because it uses paper to increase the quality and feel of the whole project. This is a piece of literature produced for care home, Headingley Hall in Leeds. The size of the job is 200x250mm portrait. What makes it a worth writing about is that it wasn't produced with a massive budget but the designer used our Omnia for the cover to give it a more tactile engaging feel. The gold hot foil blocking, also gives it a quality feel and keeps it miles away from the naff "glossy" brochure which is often produced for this type of publication. Having said that, the text paper is on a gloss art (which works well and fitted the budget) but the cover has already set the tone and feel.

This is a good example of using a material for a part of a project which can just lift the whole look and feel and make a piece of literature special as opposed to being ordinary.
The job is designed by Bradford based designer Mark Starbuck and thank you for the note...
