The Intricacies of Design: Why Materials Matter
Thursday, March 23, 2017
2:00 p.m. Eastern (11:00 a.m. Pacific)

In PaperSpecs’ upcoming free webinar sponsored by Mohawk, find out why and how the right materials make the project, and why designers should pay attention to the papers they spec.

Palo Alto, California – March 14, 2017 – Every paper used in your printed projects conveys a message. But are your materials saying what you want them to say?

That’s a question that every designer should consider. Since paper creates a tactile experience that your audience interacts with, it has the power to evoke emotions and trigger memories, making your project much more memorable. In fact, a designer’s choice of paper can make or break the finished product.

If you’re wondering whether your materials measure up, Caleb Kozlowski, creative director at Hybrid Design, is ready to share his strategy for choosing materials that create a lasting impression.

“One way to engage your audience is to take advantage of the science of touch,” says Sabine Lenz, founder of PaperSpecs.com. “Caleb Kozlowski is a master at selecting materials that enhance his projects and create a lasting effect.”

Ready to reach out and touch your audience through tangible design? This webinar will show you what you need to know to choose paper that will leave your audience mesmerized.

About Caleb Kozlowski
Caleb Kozlowski is a California native and true believer in the ideals of the west: working hard, thinking hard, and welcoming new people and ideas. Educated at Art Center College of Design, he’s since worked internationally (Canada, but still) and is now Creative Director at Hybrid Design, a multidisciplinary design studio in San Francisco. In his 12-year tenure at Hybrid he has worked closely with a mess of clients you’ve heard of, and a few you haven’t. A notoriously easygoing curmudgeon, he balances adaptability with a strong point of view, creating work that ranges from unlikely retail art installations to conceptually driven content creation. When unsupervised, he takes long bike rides, climbs rocks and drools over architecture.
