The London Games will dominate the coming year so it’s perhaps no surprise to see that Leicester-based Stocks Taylor Benson has given the 2012 calendar for paper company Antalis McNaughton an Olympic theme
Each month focuses on a graphic treatment of an Olympic event with various print finishes and techniques including foil blocking, embossing, spot UV and screenprinting (for example on the longjumper’s sand in April, below) used throughout.
The calendar will be sent to over 7,500 printers, office supply dealers, designers and creatives around the UK
CR in Print
If you enjoy reading the Creative Review website, we think you’ll enjoy reading the magazine even more. The December issue of CR includes a profile piece on the independent creative scene in Liverpool, a major interview with Dutch book designer Irma Boom and a great piece on ‘Poster King’ Edward McKnight Kauffer. You’ll also find articles on Dentsu London, a review of the Walker Art Center’s Graphic Design: Now in Production show and a fascinating debate on the clash between design and advertising betwen Wally Olins and CHI’s Dan Beckett.
And if that wasn’t enough, the issue also includes a FREE paper toy for readers to cut out and customise.
