UOP BA Hons 2016

Some readers may remember that back in the summer I went to New Designers exhibition, I also mentioned that the UOP course showcase publication which was piled up at the show was printed on our paper and that I would write about it at a later date ...well, here it is!

Size is 240x130mm, portrait and is perfect bound. It has a 4pp cover with a 64pp text and has a quality look and feel. The cover is printed (offset litho) in a stunningly bright fluorescent green which just pops off the paper!
...and as I hope you can see from the image below, the cover has been beautifully hot foil blocked in a white gloss foil.
The paper used is our Starfine White, which is an uncoated paper with a tactile feel. The cover is printed on 240gsm and the text is printed offset litho in CMYK throughout on 115gsm. This paper paper has excellent opacity for it's weight.
Here are just some of my favourite spreads...
From the New Designers show, I particularly remember Thomas Mcleod's project Top Five most visited underground stations:
As well as showing the work of the students, it shows some insights into the life and times on the course. the spread below shows the trip to Berlin:
...and the annual charity pub quiz below...
Below is the credits page on the inside back cover:
The 64pp text gives the publication a 6mm spine:
The catalogue design team is Harry Lewis-Irlam and Ryan Robinson. Print is by Bishop Printers in Portsmouth, who have made an excellent job of the print production.

The academic team is Sarah Houghton, Andrew Denham, Mike Harkins, Dan McCabe, Estelle Taylor, Sandra Zellmer, Michael Wamposzyc.
