Cooper Associates

Cooper Associates is an award winning mortgage advisory firm based in the South West. The group also combines Cooper Associates Wealth Management and Cooper Associates Accountants offering accountancy services to clients.

This brochure is for the whole group and was designed by Maidstone based design studio, Project 64.

The size of the brochure is A4 (297x210mm) portrait and is saddle stitched. The cover is striking with the image of a skeleton of a leaf, reproduced by thermography in a subtle off white shade...
...which hopefully you can see in more detail here: 
It is printed on our StarFine White, with a 4pp cover on 350gsm and 8pp text on 150gsm, giving the publication a weighty, quality feel. StarFine is an uncoated paper and as the images show, image reproduction is excellent. The solid blue and photographic images look stunning - a great amount of detail for an uncoated paper, colours are bright and vivid. Printed CMYK, offset litho, throughout.
The below image is the inside back cover - no text, just the image, which conveys a sense of space without information being crammed into every nook and cranny...
Below is a detail showing the "read-over", which is where one page meets another in the spine and I think this is spot on:
Here are two further images showing the striking cover, where the leaf skeleton covers both the front and back cover.

Print, including the Thermography, is by Paddock Wood based printer Typecast Colour.

Literature design (and the stationery and Website) is by Kent based consultancy Project 64. Design director on the project is Claire Hobbs.
