Design, copywriting and print for cultural projects and academic research

From comic-books for young people to heritage publications in former industrial communities. We use print and downloadable eBooks to complement digital projects. Sometimes, print is the just right medium for certain applications and target audiences, and we know how to blend them for maximum impact and accessibility. Need help with design for print?
