Sixty posters designed by art director and collector of the Russian Avant Garde,&nbsp;<a href="http://www.printmag.com/daily-heller/david-king/">David King</a> (1943-2016). This collection features political and cultural posters King produced in the late 1970s and mid-1980s, following his ten-year (1965-1975) career as art editor of the then ground-breaking <em>Sunday Times of London</em> color magazine. King’s style is &#8220;an easily recognizable mix of explosive sans serif typography, solid planes of vivid color and emphatic rules is seen by some as a modern channeling of the graphic language of 1920s Russian Constructivism and photomontage. He arguably introduced this language to a generation of graphic designers in Europe and the United States. King was old school &#8212; he cut and pasted images and created the original camera-ready art. It was all black and white photolithography. He then would instruct the printer on where the colors were to be on the design. King’s poster work presaged the birth of computer-aided graphic techniques for commercial and political messages. His work may recall issues thought long won, but they remain relevant to this day.</p> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2018-07-10-at-10.33.26-AM.jpg"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-550789" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2018-07-10-at-10.33.26-AM.jpg" alt="David King" width="650" height="482" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2018-07-10-at-10.33.26-AM.jpg 1102w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2018-07-10-at-10.33.26-AM-450x334.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2018-07-10-at-10.33.26-AM-600x445.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 650px) 100vw, 650px" /></a> <a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2018-07-10-at-10.33.14-AM.jpg"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-550790" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2018-07-10-at-10.33.14-AM.jpg" alt="David King" width="650" height="511" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2018-07-10-at-10.33.14-AM.jpg 1116w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2018-07-10-at-10.33.14-AM-450x354.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2018-07-10-at-10.33.14-AM-600x472.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 650px) 100vw, 650px" /></a> <a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2018-07-10-at-10.32.56-AM.jpg"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-550791" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2018-07-10-at-10.32.56-AM.jpg" alt="David King" width="650" height="977" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2018-07-10-at-10.32.56-AM.jpg 1148w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2018-07-10-at-10.32.56-AM-299x450.jpg 299w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2018-07-10-at-10.32.56-AM-399x600.jpg 399w" sizes="(max-width: 650px) 100vw, 650px" /></a> <a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2018-07-10-at-10.32.39-AM.jpg"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-550792" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2018-07-10-at-10.32.39-AM.jpg" alt="David King" width="650" height="796" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2018-07-10-at-10.32.39-AM.jpg 1094w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2018-07-10-at-10.32.39-AM-367x450.jpg 367w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Screen-Shot-2018-07-10-at-10.32.39-AM-490x600.jpg 490w" sizes="(max-width: 650px) 100vw, 650px" /></a></div> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.printmag.com/daily-heller/weekend-heller-david-king-jewe-crown/">Weekend Heller: David King&#8217;s Jewel In The Crown</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.printmag.com">Print Magazine</a>.</p> Daily Heller Uncategorized Weekend Heller Steven Heller Designer of the Week: Lana Roulhac http://www.printmag.com/uncategorized/designer-of-the-week-lana-roulhac/ Print News urn:uuid:fc9e945d-d860-ebce-a7cf-b686809e2141 Fri, 13 Jul 2018 19:39:43 +0000 <p>Lana Roulhac has more than 10 years of design expertise, focusing especially on bringing humanity and relevance to government design and technology brands. </p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.printmag.com/uncategorized/designer-of-the-week-lana-roulhac/">Designer of the Week: Lana Roulhac</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.printmag.com">Print Magazine</a>.</p> <p><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-550853" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/20596-HOW-International-Logos-800x200.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="200" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/20596-HOW-International-Logos-800x200.jpg 800w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/20596-HOW-International-Logos-800x200-450x113.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/20596-HOW-International-Logos-800x200-600x150.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></p> <hr> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">Lana Roulhac has more than 10 years of design expertise, focusing especially on bringing humanity and relevance to government design and technology brands.

Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, BA in fine art</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong>How would you describe your work?</strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">Over the years my design approach has evolved to become more agile and collaborative. I am a firm believer in using simplicity to deliver clarity for clients. Having worked as a designer in Europe, Asia and the U.S, I have experienced cultural differences first-hand but, no matter where people are from, we all share the same basic human needs. In the UK, it’s interesting how the Government utilizes simplicity to communicate to the public. Think of the iconic “Keep Calm and Carry On” poster from World War II. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">Similarly, I try to embed an element of humanity and empathy in everything I do. Emotional connection in my work matters. I’ve always been drawn to work that makes me smile, especially since becoming a mother. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">I became interested in Siegel+Gale because our approach is truly is a mix of math, science and creative, which are the fundamentals behind all powerful work.</span></p> <p><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Beroe_Website_01.png"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-550877 size-full" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Beroe_Website_01.png" alt="Lana Roulhac" width="1545" height="1377" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Beroe_Website_01.png 1545w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Beroe_Website_01-450x401.png 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Beroe_Website_01-600x535.png 600w" sizes="(max-width: 1545px) 100vw, 1545px" /></a> <a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Beroe_Website_02.png"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-550878 size-full" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Beroe_Website_02.png" alt="Lana Roulhac" width="1546" height="1246" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Beroe_Website_02.png 1546w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Beroe_Website_02-450x363.png 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Beroe_Website_02-600x484.png 600w" sizes="(max-width: 1546px) 100vw, 1546px" /></a></p> <p><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/BEROE_LOGO.png"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-550876 size-full" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/BEROE_LOGO.png" alt="Lana Roulhac" width="591" height="197" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/BEROE_LOGO.png 591w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/BEROE_LOGO-450x150.png 450w" sizes="(max-width: 591px) 100vw, 591px" /></a></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong>Where do you find inspiration?</strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">Travel is a huge source of inspiration for me. By allowing yourself to be immersed in local culture you notice the little things as well as large similarities in societal values. The subtle nuances of the new and different can give you a deeper understanding about how cultures have evolved with certain design aesthetics. When you take the time to understand why these things may speak to you, you can tap into wells of inspiration that you could have never imagined. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">Aside from traveling, I regularly look to alternative sources for inspiration. It can be anything from architectural details to a beautifully plated meal or car prototype. I walk a lot to look for alternate sources for inspiration. Sometimes, I notice something during these moments that provides me with unexpected solutions for problems I’m facing. You can look at concrete and see how the cracks in the sidewalk have formed. Inspiration is everywhere it just depends on how you’re viewing it.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong>Who are some of your favorite designers or artists?</strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">Aaron Douglas, from the Harlem Renaissance inspires my work. Harry Beck’s famous London Underground map is a perfect example of how complex information can be cleverly simplified through color-coding and powerful design to connect with people.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong>Do you have a favorite among all the projects you’ve worked on?</strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">Phoenix House, a nonprofit drug and alcohol rehabilitation center, was one of my most rewarding projects to date. Not only did we create a new visual identity and tagline, we helped to give the organization the tools they need to express their true identity. Building the brand strategy around the true meaning of the organization provided us with the inspiration for a hopeful new symbol – a Phoenix rising out of the ashes of addiction, which symbolizes the metamorphosis Phoenix House helps clients make. As designers, we’re normally stuck at our desks, but celebrating the rebrand with a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge and seeing those overcoming addiction with their peers and families, was extremely moving.</span></p> <p><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/PH_logo.png"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-550873 size-full" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/PH_logo.png" alt="Lana Roulhac" width="1125" height="963" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/PH_logo.png 1125w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/PH_logo-450x385.png 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/PH_logo-600x514.png 600w" sizes="(max-width: 1125px) 100vw, 1125px" /></a></p> <p><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/PH_IMG_6757.jpg"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-550871 size-full" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/PH_IMG_6757.jpg" alt="Lana Roulhac" width="1893" height="1297" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/PH_IMG_6757.jpg 1893w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/PH_IMG_6757-450x308.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/PH_IMG_6757-600x411.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 1893px) 100vw, 1893px" /></a> <a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/PH_IMG_6889.jpg"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-550872 size-full" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/PH_IMG_6889.jpg" alt="Lana Roulhac" width="2010" height="1341" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/PH_IMG_6889.jpg 2010w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/PH_IMG_6889-450x300.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/PH_IMG_6889-600x400.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 2010px) 100vw, 2010px" /></a><strong style="font-size: medium;">Is there a project that stands out to you as having been the biggest challenge of your career so far?</strong></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">It’s a constant battle to get audiences to focus on the larger picture of strategic and creative concepts. Your focus as a designer is shifted to selling in the direction to get alignment from your clients’ teams. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">Any project where there is not an approved strategy or research to build on can be difficult to get sell in for creative. The criterion for selecting a direction comes from a more subjective place and less through the lens of the brand. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">I create designs for the future state of a brand. When a brand doesn’t think of the future and focuses only on their immediate needs it is harder to create a visual system that is future proof. Brands need to be agile and evolve to remain relevant with their audience. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">With a past project, there were specific cultural sensitivities to consider for sell in that if ignored could have derailed the project. My team and I believed in our initial approach and committed to a rigorous refinement process until both the client and our team was happy with the result. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">Being very rigorous with an approach and exploring to stay on brief is imperative to generate a clear direction. Helping clients and guiding them through the refinement process has been a tool to overcome the tactical or functional considerations that they may have. The refinement process is what solidifies the final outcome.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong>What do you hope to accomplish in the future?</strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">II’d like to leverage my experience and design expertise to better communicate the barriers that different cultural groups face. I believe it’s important to ensure that from a young age kids from all backgrounds understand their career opportunities. Growing up, I didn’t realize design was a career option for me. In college, I started out studying engineering and it was only when I took an elective art class that I discovered a knack for design. Women of color are underrepresented in the design industry, and I believe getting the right resources for the youth to pursue design should be a priority.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong>What’s your best advice for designers today?</strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">Don’t dwell on past missteps, use these as opportunities to learn and grow.

Ideal for companies operating fleets of printers and multifunction devices, the new offerings ensure customers&rsquo; print devices are as connected as their employees are&ndash;without sacrificing convenience, security or affordability.</p> <p>&ldquo;The development of Xerox Workplace Solutions is our way of walking-the-walk by delivering market-leading security and mobility features while helping customers drive costs out of their print environment,&rdquo; said <a href="https://connect.blogs.xerox.com/author/tracey-koziol/">Tracey Koziol</a>, senior vice president, Workplace Solutions Business Group, Xerox.</p> <p><strong>Security-focused Features&nbsp; </strong></p> <p>Beyond enabling printing from any mobile device, Xerox Workplace Solutions provides two innovative security offerings designed to guard data and device accessibility: &nbsp;</p> <ul> <li> <p><strong>Content Security</strong> enhances security procedures and protects intellectual property by monitoring all content that is printed, copied or scanned. It provides enterprises with another layer of protection, automatically notifying content owners or administrators if sensitive information is being printed or shared. This feature is especially valuable for organisations that regularly handle sensitive or confidential information.</p> </li> <li> <p><strong>Mobile Phone Unlock</strong> provides convenience and cost savings by enabling a mobile phone to unlock and authenticate Xerox <a href="https://www.xerox.com/en-gb/connectkey/altalink-high-volume-printers">AltaLink<sup>&reg;</sup></a> and <a href="https://www.xerox.com/en-gb/connectkey/versalink-business-printers">VersaLink<sup>&reg;</sup></a> devices. This feature eliminates the need for costly card readers and their proximity cards. Users are authenticated by the Xerox Print Portal app on their phone and the Near Field Communication built into the devices&rsquo; user interface (UI). Most mobile devices can also authenticate by scanning QR codes found on the UI of Xerox printers.</p> </li> </ul> <p>Additional features in the Xerox Workplace Solutions portfolio include:</p> <ul> <li> <p>Reporting dashboard enables a better understanding of device usage and costs by aggregating network-printing statistics in one place for analysis and monitoring.</p> </li> <li> <p>Essential print rules restrict access to devices or features at the user or group level, enhancing cost control capabilities. For example, administrators could restrict access to printers during non-working hours.</p> </li> <li> <p>A lower cost printing option for converting mobile documents to a print-ready format.</p> </li> <li> <p>Support for the Federal Information Processing Standard 140-2 government encryption standard, a requirement in many federal offices and regulated industries.</p> </li> </ul> <p><strong>Availability and Pricing </strong><br /> Xerox Workplace Solutions is available immediately; for pricing information contact a Xerox sales representative or channel partner.</p> <p><a href="https://ctt.ec/6MV5f"><strong>Click to Tweet</strong></a></p> <p><strong>About Xerox</strong><br /> Xerox Corporation is a <a href="http://www.office.xerox.com/digital-printing-equipment/engb.html">technology</a> leader that innovates the way the world <a href="https://youtu.be/oo3uXGgGisA">communicates, connects and works</a>.

It told the story of a mouse who, motivated by curiosity, leaves her familiar land to forge a way under a seemingly impassable wall…ultimately surfacing on the other side to find a vibrant, welcoming community of mice like her. As long-separated families and friends reconnected across Germany, the story was a thinly veiled representation of (and encouragement for) reunion, rejoice, and relief.</span></p> <div id="attachment_550845" style="width: 810px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/TilleWallFirst.png"><img class="wp-image-550845" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/TilleWallFirst.png" alt="" width="800" height="527" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/TilleWallFirst.png 2245w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/TilleWallFirst-450x297.png 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/TilleWallFirst-600x396.png 600w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></a><p class="wp-caption-text">From Tillie and the Wall, Leo Lionni (<a href="https://archive.org/details/tilliewall00lion">Archive.org</a>)</p></div> <p><span style="font-size: medium;"><em>Tillie and the Wall</em> was not a publicly notable achievement by Leo Lionni, who—by any measures—could be called a man familiar with success. In his career spanning painting to poster design, advertising, magazine layout (including <em>PRINT</em> magazine), art direction (most notably for <em>Fortune</em> magazine), and sculpture, Lionni was something of a Renaissance man with a Midas touch, achieving international acclaim for leading new forms of expression in multiple art forms. His work was highly visible (even before the internet) and his influence was substantial; in Stephen J. Eskilson’s <em>Graphic Design: A New History</em>, Lionni’s design work for Olivetti is described as being so cutting edge that it led IBM, their industry competitor, to hire Paul Rand for a logo redesign…leading to the iconic IBM logo we know today.</span></p> <div id="attachment_550846" style="width: 810px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/LionniWork2.png"><img class="wp-image-550846" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/LionniWork2.png" alt="" width="800" height="348" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/LionniWork2.png 3598w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/LionniWork2-450x196.png 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/LionniWork2-600x261.png 600w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></a><p class="wp-caption-text">Left to right: Leo Lionni for PRINT magazine (<a href="http://www.printmag.com/article/stereotype-history-of-typography/">Print</a>), Olivetti typewriters (<a href="https://www.moma.org/collection/works/7394">Museum of Modern Art</a>), Fortune magazine (<a href="http://a-g-i.org/design/fortune-1960">Alliance Graphique Internationale</a>)</p></div> <p><span style="font-size: medium;"><em>Tillie and the Wall</em> incited no such drama. It was one of more than forty books that Lionni wrote for children, and not one of his four that received the Caldecott Medal for excellence in children’s book design. But, arguably more than any other work by Lionni, this simple story offers a window into Lionni’s complex views on life, politics, and art. Like Tillie the mouse, Lionni was eager to explore the relationships between place and perspective, space and connectivity, and individuality and integration. With much of the same sense of adventure that Lionni showed in his childhood exploits and later in navigating his professional and personal life, <em>Tillie and the Wall</em> presents an idealized world formed through Lionni’s own experience, imagination, and hope.</span></p> <div id="attachment_550847" style="width: 810px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/TillieWallFull.png"><img class="wp-image-550847" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/TillieWallFull.png" alt="" width="800" height="529" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/TillieWallFull.png 2312w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/TillieWallFull-450x298.png 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/TillieWallFull-600x397.png 600w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></a><p class="wp-caption-text">From Tillie and the Wall, Leo Lionni (<a href="https://archive.org/details/tilliewall00lion">Archive.org</a>)</p></div> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">Born in 1910, Lionni grew up internationally, moving between various European cities and the United States. By age sixteen, Lionni had learned his fifth language, Italian, and was beginning to absorb the language of politics. Witnessing scenes of persecution, book burning, and violence in the increasingly Fascist Italy around him, teenage Lionni immersed himself in communist ideology, eagerly seeking and reading banned novels by Tolstoy and Pushkin, among others. Throughout his adult life, he actively followed political issues, participating in dozens of political organizations between Europe and the United States.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">But Lionni’s sensitivity for the places and conditions of defining the self was apparent early in his life. As a child, Lionni had nightmares about spaces, of endless corridors leading downhill to an unending void. He found paintings at once soothing and engaging in their ability to provide a securely contained, static scene easy for closer scrutiny. Fortunately, his world offered no shortage of them. With the decorations in his childhood homes, visits to museums, and the playful influences of an art-collecting uncle, Lionni seemed to find a stability in paintings that he lacked from a childhood in homes so often transitional.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">As much as he loved still paintings, though, Lionni also loved living, breathing systems. In his youth, Lionni captured and kept tadpoles, salamanders, dragonflies, minnows, beetles, snails, finches, mice, butterflies, and more in his bedroom. He created terraria and aquaria for these creatures, designing tiny spaces where he could watch stories unravel and study how each individual held a role in the larger system.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">Lionni realized decades later that these living dioramas and the interacting characters he nurtured reappeared in his life as the books he crafted for children. “My miniature worlds, whether enclosed in yesterday’s walls of glass or today’s cardboard covers, are surprisingly alike,” Lionni reflected in his autobiography, <em>Between Worlds</em>. “Both are the orderly, predictable alternatives to a chaotic, unmanageable, terrifying universe.” To accompany Tillie as she digs a tunnel beneath the wall is to experience moving between worlds, exploring uncertain spaces, and crossing boundaries—but all within the security of a contained object, a highly designed and curated environment.</span></p> <div id="attachment_550848" style="width: 810px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/TillieDigging.png"><img class="wp-image-550848" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/TillieDigging.png" alt="" width="800" height="547" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/TillieDigging.png 2303w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/TillieDigging-450x308.png 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/TillieDigging-600x410.png 600w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></a><p class="wp-caption-text">From Tillie and the Wall, Leo Lionni (<a href="https://archive.org/details/tilliewall00lion">Archive.org</a>)</p></div> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">Perhaps Lionni, with his frequent travels in childhood and geographic restlessness in adulthood, felt that a sense of self is discovered as much through solitude and stillness as it is in seeking and contributing to a community. Tillie could have ventured to the other side to find nothing more than sunshine, but instead, Lionni let her meet others there like her, eager to celebrate her arrival. Lionni may have recalled the feeling when he returned home from a greatly anticipated interview in New York City to see his wife sprinting towards him with arms outstretched, or perhaps when he voyaged back to Italy and was received with embraces all around from family and friends. This theme reappears in <em>Pezzettino</em>, Lionni’s story about an orange-colored block discovering his role in his community.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">With Tillie’s story, Lionni seems to suggest that the accomplishments of the self are not more important than the connections we can build with others, a clue to Lionni’s appreciation for communist ideologies. Communist values are suggested in many of his picture books, down to the media he predominantly worked in—bits of paper assembled together in collages and mosaics to render a more significant, powerful whole. But the plotlines also speak for Lionni, such as that of <em>Swimmy</em>, in which one fish leads a school of fish to assemble in a form that frightens off the enemy; Frederick, in which one mouse uses his storytelling skills to uplift his community during a depressing time; and <em>Pezzettino</em>, in which an orange-colored block finds that he belongs in his community of mosaic-like friends.</span></p> <div id="attachment_550849" style="width: 810px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Swimmy.png"><img class="wp-image-550849" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Swimmy.png" alt="" width="800" height="492" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Swimmy.png 2522w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Swimmy-450x277.png 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Swimmy-600x369.png 600w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></a><p class="wp-caption-text">From Swimmy, Leo Lionni (<a href="https://archive.org/details/swimmy00lion">Archive.org</a>)</p></div> <div id="attachment_550850" style="width: 810px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Pezzettino.png"><img class="wp-image-550850" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Pezzettino.png" alt="" width="800" height="496" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Pezzettino.png 2490w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Pezzettino-450x279.png 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Pezzettino-600x372.png 600w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></a><p class="wp-caption-text">From Pezzettino, Leo Lionni (<a href="https://archive.org/details/pezzettino00lion">Archive.org</a>)</p></div> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">Perhaps it is this fascination with the influence of the individual pieces in contributing to interactions that explains how Lionni worked prolifically and fluidly across diverse media forms. Whether painting a picture, crafting a bronze sculpture, laying out a magazine, designing ads and brochures, or creating children’s books, Lionni consciously experimented with the interaction of individual elements in communicating a larger message.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">Believing strongly that the context and position of every artistic element holds meaning, Lionni even taught university classes on his theories on the significance of dot placement on a page. In <em>Between Worlds</em>, Lionni reflects, &#8220;I never failed to stress [with my students…] to be aware of the fact that every position in space has a meaning of its own. In practical and moral terms, you must feel responsible for every line you draw, for every decision you make.&#8221;<a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Blue1.png"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-550851" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Blue1.png" alt="" width="800" height="419" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Blue1.png 2506w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Blue1-450x236.png 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Blue1-600x315.png 600w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></a></span></p> <div id="attachment_550852" style="width: 810px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Blue2.png"><img class="wp-image-550852" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Blue2.png" alt="" width="800" height="420" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Blue2.png 2504w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Blue2-450x236.png 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Blue2-600x315.png 600w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></a><p class="wp-caption-text">From Little Blue and Little Yellow, Leo Lionni (<a href="https://archive.org/details/littlebluelittle00lion">Archive.org</a>)</p></div> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">With this perspective that the position of any single mark can influence (and is influenced by) a larger whole, of course the number of possibilities for a design project would be endless. Of course other media would offer tempting modes of communication and interaction to explore. And of course <em>Tillie and the Wall</em> was about much more than a mouse and a wall.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">Unlike many artists of his time, Lionni defied being pigeonholed into a specialty. Instead, he expanded the limits of what “an artist” could handle and express. With <em>Tillie and the Wall</em>, Lionni crossed an invisible border between children’s entertainment and political commentary, and in doing so, has left behind a glimpse into his complex individuality. Like Tillie, Lionni pushed boundaries with his curiosity and values, innovating opportunities where no path had existed before, showing that just one creature can make a difference.</span></p> <hr> <p><a href="http://www.howdesign.com/design-competitions/international-design-awards/"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-550853 size-full" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/20596-HOW-International-Logos-800x200.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="200" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/20596-HOW-International-Logos-800x200.jpg 800w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/20596-HOW-International-Logos-800x200-450x113.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/20596-HOW-International-Logos-800x200-600x150.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></a></p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.printmag.com/design-topics/the-space-of-story-the-small-worlds-of-leo-lionni/">The Space of Story: The Small Worlds of Leo Lionni</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.printmag.com">Print Magazine</a>.</p> Design Topics Designer Profiles Featured Illustration Design books children's books illustration Leo Lionni Maya P.

At <a href="https://www.thehenryford.org/current-events/calendar/the-world-of-charles-and-ray-eames/"><em>The World of Charles and Ray Eames</em></a> by The Henry Ford curator, Marc Greuther — making its U.S. premiere at Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation in Dearborn, MI (now until September 13) — hundreds of the couple’s most influential works, including architecture, furniture, films and more, come together to form an inspiring visual adventure full of color and ideas. Take a trip through the innovators’ careers, and explore the output of the Eames Office, where many of the team’s groundbreaking ideas were realized.</p> <p>This exhibit provides a comprehensive timeline of postwar modernism through the lens of two of its most talented practitioners. Surround yourself with the tirelessly curious thinking that shaped the movement, and learn what’s possible when you break free from creative boundaries.</p> <p>Trained in architecture and painting respectively, the duo always known as Charles and Ray met at the Cranbrook School of Art, Michigan, in 1940. The following year the couple married and moved to California to set up a home and a new studio – the Eames Office. The work of the Eames Office is characterized for most people by designs for furniture and products, yet their avid interest in addressing the needs of any given problem led them to design and communicate using a wide variety of tools and media. The World of Charles and Ray Eames charts their inspiring and prolific world and brings together key works and ideas explored at the Eames Office throughout its history. Highlights include the Revell Toy House, the film ‘Think’, The Henry Ford’s own Wills chair (a prototype perched on a garbage can that inspired their classic fiberglass chairs), and a wealth of documentation and contextual material from the professional archive of the Eames Office, and artifacts from their personal collections.</p> <p>Charles and Ray collaborated and associated with the leading artistic figures of the 20th century and their immediate circle included Buckminster Fuller and Alexander Girard, innovators featured within The Henry Ford’s own collection. Alongside the rich array of Eames designs, the exhibition includes material which highlights the importance of these relationships to the couple’s life, philosophy and working processes. The artifacts are presented in the context of the inner world of their Office and network, alongside the political, cultural and social conditions which enabled and influenced their work.</p> <p><a

We collect as much information on supply chain sources as possible, and systematically work to eliminate poor sources which may not positively benefit forests as a future resource for people and nature.</p> <p>To highlight our progress towards meeting our commitments to source well-managed and recycled materials, we’re publishing the status of our current supply chain for various categories of forest goods, as defined by the GFTN.</p> <p>We hope the transparency of the UK GFTN members about their performance on forest sourcing will prompt others in the sector to follow suit. We also encourage all forest certification systems to continuously improve their performance in delivering responsible forest management.</p> <p>At present, WWF and GFTN participants believe FSC represents the gold standard and a credible benchmark for other forest certification schemes to match. Our preference is to source increasingly from credibly-certified forests or verified recycled sources.</p> <p>The European Timber Regulation aims to limit the trade in illegal timber. It provides a baseline of legality as a minimum for forest goods entering the European market and reaching consumers. GFTN participants want to make sure they’re playing their part in reducing the UK footprint on global forest resources, by sourcing sustainably – going beyond a compliance-only approach.</p> <p>Our forest products reported for the 2017 calendar year are as follows:</p> <ul> <li>22%       Source Verified (including e.g. PEFC purchased with Chain of Custody)</li> <li>78%       Credibly Certified (e.g. FSC purchased with Chain of Custody)</li> <li>0%          Limited Knowledge</li> <li>0%          Recycled</li> </ul> <p>In the past 6 years, our procurement of forest products, towards more responsible sourcing, has progressed as shown in the chart below.</p> <p><img class="wp-image-12496 alignleft" src="http://www.immediate.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/REPORT-YEAR-300x113.jpg" alt="" width="555" height="209" srcset="http://www.immediate.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/REPORT-YEAR-300x113.jpg 300w, http://www.immediate.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/REPORT-YEAR-768x289.jpg 768w, http://www.immediate.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/REPORT-YEAR-1024x385.jpg 1024w" sizes="(max-width: 555px) 100vw, 555px" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Scope of reporting</strong></p> <p>All forest products procured and used by Immediate Media Magazine Production Department for the manufacture of magazines and supplements published in the UK and abroad.</p> <p><strong> </strong><strong>Challenges</strong></p> <p>Immediate Media Co is committed to the responsible purchasing of forest products for all our magazine paper requirements and our long-term intention is to source all forest products that we purchase from well-managed forests which have been certified to credible certification standards.</p> <p>This commitment will be realised through a step-by-step approach to responsible purchasing which utilises the best available techniques and information.</p> <p>Immediate will not knowingly source forest products from:</p> <ul> <li>Forests or forest product suppliers that do not comply with all relevant national and international legislation relating to the trade in forest products;</li> <li>High Conservation Value Forests where these are recognised nationally or regionally, unless these forests are progressing towards credible forest certification in a time-bound, step-by-step and transparent manner;</li> <li>Protected areas, parks or similar areas where harvesting operations are not complementary to responsible forest management;</li> <li>Forests which are currently being converted to other land uses, or forests that have been converted since 1994; or</li> <li>Forests which are in areas of armed conflict or civil unrest where there is a direct relationship between the forest products trade and the funding of such conflicts.</li> </ul> <p><strong>Priorities</strong></p> <p>Immediate Media Co remains dedicated to meeting our commitments as a member of GFTN and to source our magazine paper products from well managed sources.  As such our priorities for 2017 are:</p> <ul> <li>Scrutinise all suppliers of forest products purchased by the magazine Production Department</li> <li>Seek information as to the source of all such forest products and evaluate this against our stated policy</li> <li>Work with and encourage suppliers and forest sources in a process of time bound, transparent, step-by-step commitment to credible certification (such as WWF Producer Group members)</li> <li>Work with key stakeholders to ensure that best practice is followed</li> <li>Increasing supply of FSC certified stock within magazines and supplements by lobbying suppliers to support this certification scheme</li> </ul> <p><strong>Our Policy</strong></p> <p>Immediate Media Co responsible forest product procurement policy can be found here:</p> <p><a href="http://www.immediate.co.uk/immediate-media-company-responsible-forest-products-purchasing-policy/">http://www.immediate.co.uk/immediate-media-company-responsible-forest-products-purchasing-policy/</a></p> this is a test Ashleigh Grady Basware and Xerox Partner in Global Managed Services Deal https://news.xerox.co.uk/news/basware-and-xerox-partner-in-global-managed-services-deal Print Companies - News urn:uuid:6a526c7f-f982-4307-e425-573ce4a2d21a Thu, 12 Jul 2018 09:20:00 +0000 UXBRIDGE, U.K., July 12, 2018 – Global leader in networked source-to-pay solutions, e-invoicing and innovative financing services, Basware has selected Xerox to operate its scan and capture operations across 28+ countries.   As part of the agreement,...<div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://rss.xerox.com/~ff/xerox-uk-news?a=7Ba-FyBeK7M:FAGocDtmbs0:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/xerox-uk-news?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://rss.xerox.com/~ff/xerox-uk-news?a=7Ba-FyBeK7M:FAGocDtmbs0:dnMXMwOfBR0"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/xerox-uk-news?d=dnMXMwOfBR0" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://rss.xerox.com/~ff/xerox-uk-news?a=7Ba-FyBeK7M:FAGocDtmbs0:F7zBnMyn0Lo"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/xerox-uk-news?i=7Ba-FyBeK7M:FAGocDtmbs0:F7zBnMyn0Lo" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://rss.xerox.com/~ff/xerox-uk-news?a=7Ba-FyBeK7M:FAGocDtmbs0:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/xerox-uk-news?i=7Ba-FyBeK7M:FAGocDtmbs0:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://rss.xerox.com/~ff/xerox-uk-news?a=7Ba-FyBeK7M:FAGocDtmbs0:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/xerox-uk-news?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://rss.xerox.com/~ff/xerox-uk-news?a=7Ba-FyBeK7M:FAGocDtmbs0:gIN9vFwOqvQ"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/xerox-uk-news?i=7Ba-FyBeK7M:FAGocDtmbs0:gIN9vFwOqvQ" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/xerox-uk-news/~4/7Ba-FyBeK7M" height="1" width="1" alt=""/> <![CDATA[<p>UXBRIDGE, U.K., July 12, 2018 &ndash;

Is</strong><br /> <strong>drawing as fundamental as speech . . . or as breathing?</strong><br /> <em>Stick Figures</em> argues that drawing is an ancient human activity, practiced by all<br /> persons. How do I get to the airport? Pretend your phone is dead, so forget GPS.<br /> Anyone trying to answer that question is likely to say, “Here, let me show you…”<br /> and grab a pencil and an envelope to scribble on. That’s drawing! We use it all the<br /> time. Explain the rules of hockey. Describe geology. Help me understand “The<br /> Mason-Dixon Line.” These things have to be manifested visually. There’s<br /> something intimate in such an exchange, and it has to do with a fundamental<br /> sense of human agency. Coming to understand something, conveying it to others.<br /> It’s a kind of manual citizenship.</p> <p><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/spread3-1.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-550760" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/spread3-1.jpg" alt="" width="4000" height="2700" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/spread3-1.jpg 4000w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/spread3-1-450x304.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/spread3-1-600x405.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 4000px) 100vw, 4000px" /></a><strong>You’ve published this in concert with the Norman Rockwell Museum in</strong><br /> <strong>Stockbridge, Mass. What is the connection between you, Rockwell and the</strong><br /> <strong>Museum?</strong><br /> I have been lucky to work with Laurie Norton Moffat and Stephanie Plunkett for<br /> many years, going back to an exhibition I co-curated with Stephanie in 2007 on<br /> the illustrator Al Parker. We have long shared a sense that illustration and<br /> “graphic” forms need more critical attention. But the field has suffered from an<br /> underdeveloped vocabulary; it’s been held back by condescension, yes, but to a<br /> greater degree by incuriosity. What, really, are these pictorial artifacts we so often<br /> take for granted? I was honored to be part of initial conversations, among others,<br /> around the formation of the Rockwell Center for American Visual Studies, a<br /> research initiative to catalyze such work, about ten years ago.</p> <p>More recently I have worked with the Rockwell to help create a new Society of<br /> Fellows, an effort to recruit and support talented academics to write on these<br /> topics, to improve the overall quality of dialogue. Others are also gearing up. The<br /> Illustration Research Group, based in the UK, has been holding annual symposia<br /> and is publishing a journal. We’ve just announced a new MFA at Washington<br /> University in Illustration and Visual Culture, that will integrate studio work, history/<br /> theory, and curatorial studies. I think the future is bright.</p> <p>On Rockwell himself: partly due to rising prices in the secondary market, Rockwell<br /> continues to attract more scholarly attention. But the folks at the Museum know<br /> that soon anybody who ever contemporaneously flipped through a Saturday<br /> Evening Post with a Rockwell on it will be dead. The Center was a wise move, an<br /> adaptation to that reality. They are committed to American illustration more broadly<br /> now, and have been for some time. That applies to their collecting as well as their<br /> exhibitions and programming.<br /> <a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/spread11.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-550761" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/spread11.jpg" alt="" width="4000" height="2700" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/spread11.jpg 4000w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/spread11-450x304.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/spread11-600x405.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 4000px) 100vw, 4000px" /></a> <a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/spread7.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-550762" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/spread7.jpg" alt="" width="4000" height="2700" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/spread7.jpg 4000w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/spread7-450x304.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/spread7-600x405.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 4000px) 100vw, 4000px" /></a> <strong>We are living in a mechancial (in fact a digital) age, where our output is</strong><br /> <strong>determined to an extent by technology. What do you mean when you say your are</strong><br /> <strong>recasting drawing as distinct from “baby painting”?</strong><br /> I think there is an important distinction to be made between the digital and the<br /> manual. We are physical creatures. Our hands are still fixed at the ends of our<br /> arms, which is, in fact, a big deal: our brains exploded in size when our hands<br /> gained functionality through opposable thumbs. The sheer number of nerve<br /> endings in our fingers connects learning to touch and manipulation.</p> <p>We behave symbolically. We manifest ideas, which is why hand painted signs are<br /> often more intelligently constructed than many computer typeset ones. I think the<br /> technology of the future is likely to be better adapted to what we are good at and<br /> built for, and less about sedentary finger swipes.<br /> I am eager to dissociate drawing from painting in part because that’s where all the<br /> aesthetic anxiety comes from. As a historical matter painting aspired to create<br /> extremely persuasive illusions: that was its job, one taken up by cinema and virtual<br /> reality today. Those are all about specialized training and equipment, and often<br /> require access to concentrations of wealth: court painters and blockbuster film<br /> directors have some things in common.</p> <p>Drawing is different. Drawing is a symbolic activity. Everybody can do it, does do it<br /> —even though you hear people say ridiculous things like “I can’t draw a stick<br /> figure!” We have to dissociate drawing from illusion-making. It can be used for<br /> that, yes, but that’s not its most essential function.</p> <p><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/spread1-1.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-550764" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/spread1-1.jpg" alt="" width="4000" height="2700" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/spread1-1.jpg 4000w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/spread1-1-450x304.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/spread1-1-600x405.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 4000px) 100vw, 4000px" /></a> <a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/spread5.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-550765" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/spread5.jpg" alt="" width="4000" height="2700" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/spread5.jpg 4000w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/spread5-450x304.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/spread5-600x405.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 4000px) 100vw, 4000px" /></a><strong>What is the most important lesson that you want readers to take away?</strong><br /> Drawing belongs to all of us. We all do it, and we should do it more. It gives us a<br /> way to learn, to understand, to consolidate our thoughts—a method for coming to<br /> grips! It can be done with the most simple tools, going back to the first hominid to<br /> make a line in the dirt to show where the water is.</p> <p><strong>What was your biggest surprise whilst doing research for the book?</strong><br /> The book engages an art school audience on some level—it had to start there,<br /> because part of what I’m trying to do is to encourage and help rehabilitate the<br /> students who crawl out of beginning drawing feeling defeated or dismissed. Beaux<br /> Arts drawing—blended with abstract expressionist biases absorbed by the<br /> painters who taught all the drawing classes after World War Two—is an outdated<br /> contraption, often indifferently delivered. Students are expected to do it because<br /> it’s good for them, even though very few practicing artists use those skills today.<br /> Another part of that rehabilitation is ideological, because many fine art folks still, at<br /> this late date and in the face of declining enrollments, sneer at the aspiring<br /> designers and illustrators who fill the seats.</p> <p>BUT the biggest surprise has been the conversations I have had with non-art, nondesign<br /> people about drawing. Once freed to talk about drawing without having to<br /> manage the aesthetic anxiety that seems to universally descend in the 6th or 7th<br /> grade, people get really excited. I have long harbored a hope that anyone with an<br /> interest in visual experience or human culture could get something out of the book.<br /> I wrote it that way—it’s not really an academic book.

A necessary investment in contemporary technology is the basic precondition required to ensure at least 7-10 more years of secure production, at a fraction of the costs of a new acquisition.</strong></p> <p>&#8220;Retrofits of the controls and operating elements are particularly popular currently among users of manroland web systems&#8217; newspaper presses; this also applies to our long term partners in India&#8221; explains Daniel Popp, Service Manager India at manroland web systems. The electronics and the connected sensors and software or operating elements, are currently subject to much faster technological change than previously. Thankfully it would appear that this does not affect the mechanical components, which have been designed for decades of continuous load. In order that their customers can further benefit from these durable materials, manroland web systems have developed retrofit packages, especially for these requirements.</p> <p>Recently, HT Media, which produces the Hindustan Times, one of the biggest English language daily Newspapers, replaced the Interbus Loop on their COLORMAN press. It involved a complete exchange of the now obsolete and no longer contemporary system. The spare parts, which were left over, were not scrapped but rather can be stored for usage on other printing presses in the plant.</p> <p>The new software and electronics provide even more features than the future availability of coordinated components; for example a more detailed error description, which enables faster and more precise troubleshooting. The benefits provided by these ever more complex sensors and automation innovations are unbeatable for the everyday tight production slots of a daily Newspaper.</p> <p>The new system links all sensors and actuators directly with one computer. Possible faults (e.g. a faulty component) can therefore be precisely located and exchanged without major production delays. Additionally, this improves the diagnosis possibilities for manroland web systems&#8217; remote diagnostics tool TSC (TeleSupportCenter).</p> <p>In close coordination with the customer, the complete retrofit was completed within two weeks and that without any interference with the nightly productions. &#8220;The new technology was installed by manroland parallel to the existing system, then tested and after approval by the customer, commissioned,&#8221; according to Popp.</p> </div> </div> </div></div></div></div><div class="vc_row wpb_row vc_row-fluid"><div class="colorRow wpb_column vc_column_container vc_col-sm-12"><div class="vc_column-inner "><div class="wpb_wrapper"><div class="col-md-4 colorCol colorColGreen default"></p> <h3>Download:</h3> <p><a href="https://www.manroland-web.com/en/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2018/07/PI-015_eRetrofit-HT-Media_E.pdf">Press Release | PDF</a></div></div></div></div></div> <p>Der Beitrag <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.manroland-web.com/en/newsroom/4953/bestseller-e-retrofits-from-manroland-web-systems">Bestseller: e-retrofits from manroland web systems</a> erschien zuerst auf <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.manroland-web.com/en">manroland web systems GmbH</a>.</p> Newsroom Press Release manroland web systems Show Me Your Show Cards http://www.printmag.com/advertising-2/show-me-your-show-cards/ Print News urn:uuid:f105268e-597f-2f94-9a1c-21f4ea561645 Wed, 11 Jul 2018 05:12:47 +0000 <p>D.M.

Cassandre when the liquor came to the United States. He also created the Coronet Man, the mascot for Coronet Brandy. But did you know about the DuBouchett Man (a Harlequin by any other name)? These are all illustrative trademarks, of which he did many. One doesn&#8217;t think of Rand doing illustration but he was quite active in the genre, doing his utmost to keep them from turning into cliches.</p> <p>Rand wrote about &#8220;The Trademark as an Illustrative Device&#8221; in <a href="http://Calico Critters is a line of miniature animal figures, with homes, furniture and accessories. The animal figures are unique because they are made of a special flocked material that gives them an endearing quality."><em>Seven Designers Look At Trademark Design</em></a> (Paul Theobald Publisher, 1952): &#8220;A trademark is not merely a device to adorn a letterhead, to stamp on a product, or to insert at the base of an advertisement; nor one whose sole prerogative is to imprint itself by dint of constant repetition on the mind of the consumer public. The trademark is a potential illustrative feature of unappreciated vigor and efficacy; and when used as such escapes its customary fate of being a boring restatement of the identity of the products maker. . . This is important; monotonous repetition eventually loses its impact and the trademark which becomes a visual cliche will fail to evoke a response from the spectator.&#8221;</p> <p>So even a recurring character like Dubonnet, Coronet and DuBouchett can have life after a hundred uses. And today, they actually seem fresh as ever.</p> <p><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/011_paul_rand_2_theredlist.png"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-550745" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/011_paul_rand_2_theredlist.png" alt="" width="650" height="563" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/011_paul_rand_2_theredlist.png 621w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/011_paul_rand_2_theredlist-450x390.png 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/011_paul_rand_2_theredlist-600x520.png 600w" sizes="(max-width: 650px) 100vw, 650px" /></a> <a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Rand2.jpg"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-550746" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Rand2.jpg" alt="" width="650" height="836" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Rand2.jpg 800w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Rand2-350x450.jpg 350w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Rand2-466x600.jpg 466w" sizes="(max-width: 650px) 100vw, 650px" /></a><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/IMG_5054.jpg"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-550747" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/IMG_5054.jpg" alt="" width="650" height="1046" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/IMG_5054.jpg 2473w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/IMG_5054-280x450.jpg 280w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/IMG_5054-373x600.jpg 373w" sizes="(max-width: 650px) 100vw, 650px" /></a><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Rand-1.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-550748" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Rand-1.jpg" alt="" width="400" height="506" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Rand-1.jpg 400w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/Rand-1-356x450.jpg 356w" sizes="(max-width: 400px) 100vw, 400px" /></a><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/FullSizeRender1.jpg"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-550754" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/FullSizeRender1.jpg" alt="" width="650" height="867" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/FullSizeRender1.jpg 3024w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/FullSizeRender1-338x450.jpg 338w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/FullSizeRender1-450x600.jpg 450w" sizes="(max-width: 650px) 100vw, 650px" /></a></p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.printmag.com/branding/dubouchett-paul-rands-harlequin/">DuBouchett and Paul Rand&#8217;s Illustrated Trademarks</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.printmag.com">Print Magazine</a>.</p> Advertising Branding & Identity Design Daily Heller Steven Heller DuBouchett Paul Rand Steven Heller Disaster relief donation for people affected by the July 2018 torrential rain in Western Japan http://www.fujifilmholdings.com/en/news/2018/0710_01_01.html Print Companies - News urn:uuid:1a9b8c5b-a48b-3981-e982-22a2c5948492 Tue, 10 Jul 2018 01:00:00 +0000 Print firm bagged by Paragon http://www.printmonthly.co.uk/NewsStory.aspx?i=6812 Print News urn:uuid:8f52af3a-55d4-39ea-cf92-31babc8aa1dc Mon, 09 Jul 2018 19:44:28 +0000 With the acquisition of Imprimus in Cornwall, Paragon Group’s Customer Communications UK has inched towards the magic £1bn turnover figure placing it firmly in the big league.

The Union&#8217;s publications were American in spirit and moral in tone. They cover a wide range of subjects including history, geography, biography, natural and physical sciences, poetry, catechisms, primers, and hymnbooks. A large archive (20k volumes) is in the <a href="https://libwww.freelibrary.org/programs/rarebooks/coll_children.cfm">Rare Books Division</a> of the Free Library of Philadelphia.</p> <p>The ASSU was founded in 1824 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to promote early literacy and spiritual development of children, teaching them to read through the use of booklets published by the Union. The ASSU continued its publication program until l960 and some time later changed its name to the American Missionary Fellowship, which. Although the publications were meant to be nondenominational, many of the images tell biblical stories with a conservative leaning. One such shows Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden with a note: &#8220;Not to be used unless clothed.&#8221;</p> <p><span class="date">May 25, 1830</span> in Philadelphia the American Sunday School Union had adopted its name and constitution. Now the members were pledging themselves to take on an enormous task:</p> <p>&#8220;Resolved, that the American Sunday School Union, in reliance upon Divine aid, will, within two years, establish a Sunday school in every destitute place where it is practicable, throughout the Valley of the Mississippi.&#8221;</p> <p>In just two years they hoped to reach over 4,000,000 people in an area of over 1,300,000 square miles, The first year the American Sunday School Union sent out 49 missionaries. The next year, they sent out 112. Such small numbers could not hope to do the job alone. They were told to recruit helpers in every little community. Their instructions could be boiled down to: Start a class, teach it,  and where possible find a Christian man or woman willing to lead it, give that person a bundle of books and tracts and set forth an multiply.</p> <p>American Sunday-School Union was the most prolific publisher of children&#8217;s books in 19th-century America. The Union illustrated its books and periodicals copiously, mainly with wood engravings. <a href="https://digital.librarycompany.org/islandora/object/Islandora%3AASSU1?display=list">The original woodblocks</a> were used through multiple printings and retained by the Union and are now in the collection of The Library Company of Philadelphia:  Teitelman Collection of American Sunday-School Union Woodblocks and Imprint.</p> <p>There were few public schools so Sunday schools taught people to read and showed them how they could become voters. That made Sunday schools popular, making it possible for families to keep contact with distant members through letter writing. Education drew them into the life of the nation. And for families living alone in the woods or on the prairie, it was wonderful to look up and see the unfamiliar face of a missionary with news from the rest of the nation. Later, the Sunday School Union published Christian fiction that made reading a lot more fun for children.</p> <p>This is one of those fun volumes, said to be illustrated In the style of Kate Greenaway. Many other famous illustrators, like Arthur Rackham were also employed.</p> <p><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/quarterly001.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full

All this appeared to change when <em>Maus,</em> Art Spiegelman’s tale of his father’s experiences as a Polish Jew and Holocaust survivor, told with animals, won the Pulitzer Prize in 1992, the first graphic novel to do so. &nbsp;Spiegelman had begun publishing these stories in his magazine <em>RAW</em>, back in 1980.<img class="aligncenter wp-image-550491" style="font-size: 1rem;" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/We-Spoke-Out-Complete-3-dragged-5.jpg" alt="We Spoke Out" width="800" height="1023" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/We-Spoke-Out-Complete-3-dragged-5.jpg 2646w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/We-Spoke-Out-Complete-3-dragged-5-352x450.jpg 352w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/We-Spoke-Out-Complete-3-dragged-5-469x600.jpg 469w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">Thanks to the newly published <em>We Spoke Out</em> from Yoe Books, we now know that this difficult subject matter was covered as early as 1951. &nbsp;Coauthored by Neal Adams, Rafael Medoff and Craig Yoe, with an brief introduction and afterward by Stan Lee, Adams notes, “Some stories are stronger than others. But that’s not the point. This isn’t a Greatest Hits album. It’s a slice of history…. This is how we tried, in our own modest way, to teach American kids about something very important that they weren’t learning about in school.”</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">While Hitler made his first comic book appearance being slugged by Captain America in 1941, and war comics as a genre began soon after the war, the Holocaust was hardly mentioned. However, according to coauthor, Dr. Medoff , Holocaust and Jewish historian, and founding director of The David S. Wyman Institute for Holocaust Studies, “During the 1950s, when the Nazis were fresh in the public’s mind and there was no Comics Code Authority to restrict what comics creators wrote and drew, a number of comic books featured starkly gory tales of Nazi concentration camp commandants engaging in torture and other atrocities. Often the victims would return from beyond the grave to give the Germans a taste of their own medicine.”</span></p> <div id="attachment_550508" style="width: 810px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="wp-image-550508" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/We-Spoke-Out-Complete-3-dragged.jpg" alt="We Spoke Out" width="800" height="1042" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/We-Spoke-Out-Complete-3-dragged.jpg 1264w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/We-Spoke-Out-Complete-3-dragged-345x450.jpg 345w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/We-Spoke-Out-Complete-3-dragged-460x600.jpg 460w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /><p class="wp-caption-text">Impact #1, Al Feldstein and Bernie Krigstein, 1955</p></div> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">This began with EC comics, first in <em>Frontline Combat</em> #3 with the telling of Rommel, and Nazi atrocities, in “Desert Fox,” by writer Harvey Kurtzman and artist Wally Wood, and again in 1955 in I<em>mpact</em> #1 with “Master Race,” by writer Al Feldstein and artist Bernie Krigstein. The later, which heralded “A ‘New Direction’ in magazines on the cover, is a masterpiece of comic storytelling, stark, painfully honest and passionately told.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;">Other publishers followed suit. Included here are “Escape from Maidenek,” from <em>Stamps Comics </em>#4 in 1952 from Youthful Magazines and “The Tattooed Heart!” from <em>Beware! Terror Tales</em> #4, published in 1953 by Fawcett Comics. &nbsp;All are still hard to read some 6 plus decades later.</span></p> <div id="attachment_550509" style="width: 810px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="wp-image-550509" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/We-Spoke-Out-Complete-3-dragged-1.jpg" alt="We Spoke Out" width="800" height="1036" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/We-Spoke-Out-Complete-3-dragged-1.jpg 1271w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/We-Spoke-Out-Complete-3-dragged-1-347x450.jpg 347w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/We-Spoke-Out-Complete-3-dragged-1-463x600.jpg 463w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /><p class="wp-caption-text">Stamps Comics #4, art by Vince Napoli, Youthful Magazines, 1952</p></div> <div id="attachment_550496" style="width: 810px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="wp-image-550496" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/We-Spoke-Out-Complete-32-.jpg" alt="We Spoke Out" width="800" height="518" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/We-Spoke-Out-Complete-32-.jpg 2550w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/We-Spoke-Out-Complete-32--450x291.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/We-Spoke-Out-Complete-32--600x388.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /><p class="wp-caption-text">Eerie #9, by Archie Goodwin and Gene Colan, Warren Publishing, 1967</p></div> <div id="attachment_550492" style="width: 810px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="wp-image-550492" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/We-Spoke-Out-Complete-3-dragged-4.jpg" alt="We Spoke Out" width="800" height="518" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/We-Spoke-Out-Complete-3-dragged-4.jpg 2278w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/We-Spoke-Out-Complete-3-dragged-4-450x291.jpg 450w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/We-Spoke-Out-Complete-3-dragged-4-600x388.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /><p class="wp-caption-text">Sgt.

There are detailed essays for each comic story. I will let others be the judge as to how successful the stories are when brought into the superhero genre. There is no question that this is an important work, and the authors are to be commended. During these turbulent times, this should stand as a reminder to all, “Never Again.”</span></p> <div id="attachment_550512" style="width: 760px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="wp-image-550512 size-full" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/blitzkrieg-2-march-apr-1976-e1526924159702.jpg" alt="We Spoke Out" width="750" height="1125" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/blitzkrieg-2-march-apr-1976-e1526924159702.jpg 750w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/blitzkrieg-2-march-apr-1976-e1526924159702-300x450.jpg 300w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/blitzkrieg-2-march-apr-1976-e1526924159702-400x600.jpg 400w" sizes="(max-width: 750px) 100vw, 750px" /><p class="wp-caption-text">Blitzkrieg #2, Joe Kubert, DC Comics, 1976</p></div> <div id="attachment_550494" style="width: 810px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="wp-image-550494" src="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/We-Spoke-Out-3.jpg" alt="We Spoke Out" width="800" height="1041" srcset="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/We-Spoke-Out-3.jpg 1266w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/We-Spoke-Out-3-346x450.jpg 346w, http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/We-Spoke-Out-3-461x600.jpg 461w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /><p class="wp-caption-text">Sgt.

And therefore the EUROMAN is a bestseller in Brazil.</h2> <p><strong>The EUROMAN combines efficiency, flexibility and productivity while maintaining high quality and cutting-edge technology. This makes it the ideal offer for dynamic markets with high growth rates like in Brazil being in a transition from a market of mainly 16 pages presses to high volume presses up 32 to 64 pages presses. This had been realized by the printing company Pia Sociedade de São Paulo that has invested in a 2-web EUROMAN press from manroland web systems. The EUROMAN is ideally used for printing bibles as well as magazines and catalogs.</strong></p> <p>Quality, flexibility and efficiency – all at highest quality – this is what Brazilian printers like Pia Sociedade require today. The bestselling commercial press from manroland web systems is the ideal systems for this. The need for consolidation and industrialized production structures to cut the operating cost to a minimum requires to our customers investing in more efficient production systems like the EUROMAN.</p> <p>Besides ideal flexibility and high quality, the EUROMAN in particular offers efficient automation solutions from manroland web systems. Regarding all these benefits, it’s no wonder that the triumphal march of the EUROMAN already lasts since 2005: Meanwhile 11 presses produce at different printing companies with 44 printing units, 11 reel splicers and 11 folders from manroland web systems.</p> <p><strong>EUROMAN – Made in Germany</strong></p> <p>What is appreciated most by most customers in Brazil is the proven manroland web systems technology of the EUROMAN that is offered for an optimal price-performance ratio. The EUROMAN is not only suitable as an entry level press for heatset printing coming from 16 pages presses to high volume presses – also for old stagers the press is a good alternative. On its way to become a perfect production system, the manroland web systems project management offers comprehensive personal support that is guaranteed by the local sales and service partner groupwork Serviços de Representação Comercial Ltda.  This is also maintained through long-term service level agreements.</p> </div> </div> </div></div></div></div><div class="vc_row wpb_row vc_row-fluid"><div class="colorRow wpb_column vc_column_container vc_col-sm-12"><div class="vc_column-inner "><div class="wpb_wrapper"><div class="col-md-4 colorCol colorColGreen default"></p> <h3>Download:</h3> <p><a href="https://www.manroland-web.com/en/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2018/07/PR-014_EUROMAN-Pia-Sociedade_E.pdf">Press Release | PDF</a></div></div></div></div></div> <p>Der Beitrag <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.manroland-web.com/en/newsroom/4948/another-euroman-for-brazil">Another EUROMAN for Brazil</a> erschien zuerst auf <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.manroland-web.com/en">manroland web systems GmbH</a>.</p> Newsroom Press Release manroland web systems Rodolphe Töpffer and The First Sequential Visual Narrative http://www.printmag.com/daily-heller/rodolphe-toepffler-and-the-first-sequential-visual-narrative/ Print News urn:uuid:ef313fb5-1bf7-c0ed-d19e-bc95a832d002 Tue, 03 Jul 2018 05:01:18 +0000 <p>On this July 4 (I know its only July 3 but it is the correct week) its only fitting that we celebrate the birth of our national treasure, the American comic strip, actually invented by the Lafayette of the sequential picture/narrative revolution, Paris-educated, Swiss-born Rodolphe Töpffer (1799–1846), a author, painter, cartoonist, and caricaturist, known for his ittérature en estampes, &#8220;graphic literature&#8221;), which the earliest sequential narrative.

He is known as the father of comic strips (or what we now generally call graphic novels. This is a translation of his most famous and brilliantly constructed (see the way he uses panels and the long handwritten tracts of text &#8211; no speech balloons, though). He was also a schoolteacher and ran a boarding school, where he amused his students with caricatures.</p> <p>This, for me, is Töpffer&#8217;s layered <i>ittérature en estampes</i>, &#8220;The True Story of Monsieur Crépin,&#8221; first published in 1837, featuring the adventures of a father who employs a series of tutors for his children and falls prey to their eccentricities. Read it in its entirety below.</p> <p>He wrote six more &#8220;novels,&#8221; popular selling satires of 19th century society. Another story <i>Histoire de M. Vieux Bois</i> was brought to a United States audience as <i>The Adventures of Mr. Obadiah Oldbuck </i>and published in 1842 as a supplement in the New York City newspaper <em>Brother Jonathan</em> , essentially the first American comic book and launch of the graphic novel. You might say, a declaration of independence from the word-only book. And here is a PDF of another story <a href="https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Toepffer_Histoire_Albert.pdf"><em>Histoire Albert</em></a>.</p> <p>The eminent comics historian David Kunzle wrote in <a href="http://www.upress.state.ms.us/books/869">F<em>ather of the Comic Strip Rodolphe Töpffer</em></a>: &#8220;Töpffer developed a graphic style suited to his poor eyesight: the doodle, which he systematized and also theorized. The drawings, with their &#8220;modernist&#8221; spontaneous, flickering, broken lines, forming figures in mad hyperactivity, run above deft, ironic captions and propel narratives of surreal absurdity.&#8221;</p> <p><a href="http://wwwcdn.printmag.com/wp-content/uploads/toepfer-009.jpg"><img class="aligncenter wp-image-550589 size-full"

Results show that there is no getting around the topic of additive manufacturing processes. The Fused Filament Fabrication process (FFF) for plastic parts has been around since about 1990. In the meantime there are industrially mature approaches, which aim to exploit this process for metal parts also. This means that there is an opportunity to possibly facilitate easier procurement of spare and wear parts, which is a step that would bring massive benefits to customers. </strong></p> <p>The term additive manufacturing describes a process in which a component is built up, layer upon layer, on the basis of digital three dimensional design data, through depositing or connecting of materials. The familiar term, 3D printing, is ever more often used as a synonym for additive manufacturing processes. The next generation FFF process is a professional production process, which is currently in the very early stages of its development.</p> <p><strong>manroland web systems and additive manufacturing</strong></p> <p>One reason why manroland web systems has occupied itself intensively with this subject is simultaneously one of the most prominent benefits of additive manufacturing: shorter lead times. And it is almost immaterial whether it is a work piece with complex geometries or a relatively simple object. The development and production of tools and moulds is completely eliminated. Corrections to prototypes or short notice design modifications are also possible, without problems.</p> <p><strong>Time to Market and highest levels of flexibility</strong></p> <p>manroland web systems has developed an innovative business model for online trade over the past few years with the manroland web STORE and the B2B-trading platform, MARKET-X. The topics of speed and flexibility are naturally of great interest; in particular, for this successful e-commerce sector with its fast growing, ever widening spectrum of offered products. Various manufacturing processes, which provide further benefits to the customer, can be implemented, depending on how pressing the deadline is.</p> <p><strong>Sustainability and responsibility</strong></p> <p>A huge benefit of 3D printing which often receives short shrift these days, has however enormous significance: significantly less waste is produced during the production of work pieces by additive manufacturing, than would be with conventional production processes. In the future, for example, decentralised production would be conceivable in order to shorten transport routes. 3D printing provides very promising possibilities for designers regarding lightweight construction, which in turn means a reduction of materials used.</p> <p>&#8220;Alongside the afore-mentioned benefits, additive manufacturing additionally brings an immense optimisation of inventories with it, because you can produce &#8220;on demand&#8221;. At the same time, we still have a definitive security of supply. These benefits mean that our customers will profit both monetarily and also through time savings and faster processes. We can also guarantee long-term reproducibility of mechanical parts without the use of specific tools or casting moulds. A lot of these processes are still not an option when it comes to mass production, however they are very suited to the production of conventional batch sizes in machinery and plant engineering,&#8221; explains Lutz Leonhardt, Vice President Global Supply Chain &amp; Merchant Network at manroland web systems.</p> <p><strong>Benefit upon benefit</strong></p> <p>Alexander Wachter, Vice President eCommerce, Remote Service, Customer Support at manroland web systems, summarises the major benefits once again: &#8220;We want to permanently integrate additive manufacturing products into our e-commerce sector in the future in order to improve the availability of parts for our customers, provide alternative procurement opportunities for ourselves and thereby a stable high level of customer satisfaction through the creation of even shorter delivery time options. We will continue to support our customers to produce competitively and efficiently in the future, using the most modern methods.&#8221;</p> <p>Franz Kriechbaum, member of the management board at manroland web systems, concludes: &#8220;The integration of additive processes into our stocking strategy means we are developing a further important technological benefit when compared with all of our competitors, making us the strongest performing business partners for our customers.&#8221;</p> </div> </div> </div></div></div><div class="wpb_column vc_column_container vc_col-sm-4"><div class="vc_column-inner "><div class="wpb_wrapper"> <div class="wpb_single_image wpb_content_element vc_align_left"> <figure class="wpb_wrapper vc_figure"> <a href="https://www.manroland-web.com/en/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2018/06/Additive_Manufacturing_MRWS_FINAL.jpg" target="_blank" class="vc_single_image-wrapper vc_box_border_grey"><img width="382" height="210" src="https://www.manroland-web.com/en/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2018/06/Additive_Manufacturing_MRWS_FINAL-382x210.jpg" class="vc_single_image-img attachment-medium" alt="" srcset="https://www.manroland-web.com/en/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2018/06/Additive_Manufacturing_MRWS_FINAL-382x210.jpg 382w, https://www.manroland-web.com/en/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2018/06/Additive_Manufacturing_MRWS_FINAL-765x420.jpg 765w, https://www.manroland-web.com/en/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2018/06/Additive_Manufacturing_MRWS_FINAL-250x137.jpg 250w, https://www.manroland-web.com/en/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2018/06/Additive_Manufacturing_MRWS_FINAL-600x329.jpg 600w, https://www.manroland-web.com/en/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2018/06/Additive_Manufacturing_MRWS_FINAL.jpg 1180w" sizes="(max-width: 382px) 100vw, 382px" /></a> </figure> </div> </div></div></div></div><div class="vc_row wpb_row vc_row-fluid"><div class="colorRow wpb_column vc_column_container vc_col-sm-12"><div class="vc_column-inner "><div class="wpb_wrapper"><div class="col-md-4 colorCol colorColGreen default"></p> <h3>Download:</h3> <p><a href="https://www.manroland-web.com/en/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2018/06/PR-013_Additive-Fertigung_E.pdf">Press Release | PDF</a></div></div></div></div></div> <p>Der Beitrag <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.manroland-web.com/en/newsroom/4940/additive-manufacturing-in-the-industrial-sector">Additive manufacturing in the industrial sector</a> erschien zuerst auf <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.manroland-web.com/en">manroland web systems GmbH</a>.</p> Newsroom Press Release manroland web systems Hickling & Squires is First Commercial Printer to Invest in Xerox Iridesse https://news.xerox.co.uk/news/releases-20180621 Print Companies - News urn:uuid:aa34a7f3-fb85-f186-b58c-dc4a914b9a5c Tue, 19 Jun 2018 09:58:00 +0000 UXBRIDGE, U.K., June 19, 2018 – Hickling & Squires has become the first UK commercial printer to invest in Xerox’s Iridesse Production Press as it looks to offer a greater variety of colour printing to its growing customer base.   The Nottingham-based...<div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://rss.xerox.com/~ff/xerox-uk-news?a=bPopn5uBX0U:izBracPVAks:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/xerox-uk-news?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://rss.xerox.com/~ff/xerox-uk-news?a=bPopn5uBX0U:izBracPVAks:dnMXMwOfBR0"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/xerox-uk-news?d=dnMXMwOfBR0" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://rss.xerox.com/~ff/xerox-uk-news?a=bPopn5uBX0U:izBracPVAks:F7zBnMyn0Lo"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/xerox-uk-news?i=bPopn5uBX0U:izBracPVAks:F7zBnMyn0Lo" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://rss.xerox.com/~ff/xerox-uk-news?a=bPopn5uBX0U:izBracPVAks:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/xerox-uk-news?i=bPopn5uBX0U:izBracPVAks:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://rss.xerox.com/~ff/xerox-uk-news?a=bPopn5uBX0U:izBracPVAks:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/xerox-uk-news?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://rss.xerox.com/~ff/xerox-uk-news?a=bPopn5uBX0U:izBracPVAks:gIN9vFwOqvQ"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/xerox-uk-news?i=bPopn5uBX0U:izBracPVAks:gIN9vFwOqvQ" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/xerox-uk-news/~4/bPopn5uBX0U" height="1" width="1" alt=""/> <![CDATA[<p>UXBRIDGE, U.K., June 19, 2018 &ndash;
