Shlomi Kramer, a designer for HP’s Indigo division, has a personal passion for raised ink, and the result on this 2014 calendar is a flight of design imagination that set my heart wings to fluttering.
Using the theme of an origami bird, Kramer designed stunning illustrations – flocks coming together to form beautiful shapes in bright colors: flower, pagoda, sphere, leaf, ocean waves, snow-capped mountain. In the background are more shapes (lanterns, tree limbs, geometric patterns) printed in transparent ink.
The matte look of the raised ink creates a subtle visual contrast against the pearlized effect of the paper. The pages glitter, and of course, beg to be touched. The raised ink provides depth and texture adding a very high-end look to this digitally printed piece.
Elegant, intriguing, inventive, and print-on-demand … oh the possibilities!
