Jobs from the past - Number 22

Regular followers of this blog will know that my first post of every month is a "job from the past" so that I can show some of the really good work from years gone by...

First Exposure - July 2007

This is a set of complimentary information literature and invitations for an event bringing together inspiring new fashion and lifestyle brands, mainly from New York.

Each of the items is an A3 size and folded to A5 size but the top fold is in falf, so the effect is staggered and as a consequence, it doesn't feel like a standard A5 finished piece. Hopefully you can see from the pics below:
This is a rather unusual job because the material used is our Offenbach Bible 60gsm printed 1 colour line or full coverage solid. This isn't unusual in itself as it is very popular for folded invitations/inserts etc. however you may have noticed from the pics, a metallic gold and that is because there is a massive 250mm diameter hot foil block. The combination of the lightweight material and the foiling is fantastic - a really beautiful piece.
The design was by Studio Exposure which is part of the Exposure group of companies who hosted the event. The designer on the project was Matt Jenkins.
The printer that printed the job and handled the superb foiling was St Ives Westerham Press.

Matt Jenkins is now working freelance in London and has regular engagements at all the best studios!
