Dare to be Seen 2016 image

Last week the Design is Yummy team took a trip to Veritiv’s Design and Print Excellence Awards 2016 (AKA our Paper Disneyland). We enjoyed getting inspired by the work and interacting with the new paper textures trending in the printing world from some of the most reputable paper mills in the world. In the design-trend aspect, this year we noticed a lot of metallic foil, hot stamping, holographic effects and colourful two toned pictures mixed with elegance and simplicity. The look.. Pizazz! Thank you Veritiv for hosting another successful event. Looking forward to the next event.

The dynamic duo at Zim & Zou team specializes in building installations using tangible materials such as paper, wood, thread, and more. Check out more of their work here.

Paper galore! The days leading up to the uVu Paper Conference were counted down with pure excitement in our office. Gorgeous paper stocks, innovative design and delicious food – what better way to spend an evening?

Domtar, Neenah and Finch were just some of the paper mills showcasing their latest stocks at the event. From recyclable papers, to washable papers (what!?), we got to see and touch the paper of the past, present and future. We left armed with tons of paper goodies and inspiration. Thanks Veritiv!
