G.F Smith talk- Alyson Hurst

In order to understand how different publication are designed, paper decisions take a big part on it, so we had a visit and talk from Alyson Hurst to talk about how paper is used in publications rather than just the variety of papers they have in G.F Smith.

It definitely helped us to see the ways you can use paper to give character to a magazine or book. Not just by the colour of it, but the texture (embossed paper), the finish (such us coated glossy, coated matte or uncoated) and the way you print fold and bind the final publication.

My group and me definitely took everything on board and from that talk made a check list of finishes and ideas for our anthology pitch. And also, I did it on my own for my MFP ideas and development to come, since paper will always be essential for a designer.
