Artwork Curation

Heritage and experience is important but we’ve also embraced modern technology. At the heart of everything we do is our state of the art Curator project and asset management platform.

Curator helps to eliminate mistakes that are so easily made when creating complex artwork. We apply a rigorous and thorough process to artwork creation with proven project management and control techniques. This ensures that everybody involved in your artwork and print supply chain is looking at ‘one version of the truth’, that content is authorised and signed-off at every stage, and that the process is efficient and cost effective.

Curator means we can receive, store, share, track, organise, access, re-format and distribute all your digital assets and content within a single platform to create artwork that is accurate, consistent and compliant.

Reprographics

Our repro team ensures that artwork is set-up perfectly for the type of print and packaging material used. With many years’ experience in this specialist field our experts can re-engineer your files to ensure that colours look as they should whatever the substrate, your design works when applied to a complex pack shape and that text and imagery are optimised to ensure they reproduce as intended across any print process.

MITIGATING RISK

In highly regulated, high risk categories such as food and drink, it’s critical that packaging and other consumer information is accurate and compliant. Despite this, recalls of products due to labelling and packaging mistakes, poor language or missing allergens continue to increase.
Our specialist expertise and Curator platform help to mitigate or eliminate much of this risk, so brands avoid costly recalls, fines, negative reputational and PR impacts – or even worse.
