 Palo Alto, Calif. – March 1, 2019 – How do you create a brand for the Foundation of a scientific and cultural hero on par with Albert Einstein? This has been the challenge repeatedly met by Glazier Design as they’ve put a sophisticated, contemplative face on the work of The Stephen Hawking Foundation, which continues to protect the research long-championed by the world-renowned astrophysicist.  

 In a free PaperSpecs webinar on March 14th, Pi Day, Glazier Design Founder Ben Glazier will walk attendees through the many ways his studio has brought the scientist’s intricate cosmic insights to the public through the creation of some truly intriguing print pieces. 

 ‘There are some jobs we do for money, some for love or charity, and then there are some that make us feel truly blessed to have been asked,” Ben explains. “Creating designs for Professor Stephen Hawking and his foundation has given me and my designers at Glazier Design, without doubt, the proudest moments of our working lives.” 

 Reflects PaperSpecs Founder Sabine Lenz, “It’s astonishing to me how the perfect blend of creative inspiration, solid design, and cutting-edge printing technology can so completely capture the dedication and personality of a towering historic figure like Professor Hawking.”
