In this post we thought we would share with you parts of the design process for one of the spreads in the most recent edition of BNP Paribas Securities Services OneUK online magazine. We will focus on one of our regular features in the magazine ‘Team talk’. Starting with concept sketches, we give you a snap shot of the various stages that went into creating the final layout.
This year we decided to use origami as the theme for our 2013 Christmas card. The cards were sent out with Pantone coloured origami paper together with instruction sheets for making 4 Christmas themed objects. The card design was a play on the instruction sheets, encouraging the recipient to read the Christmas message from step 1 to step 4. The origami theme conveyed the idea of turning a blank canvas into something simple but beautiful. The cards were printed white ink on Colorplan fuschia stock. The kraft capacity envelopes were individually rubber stamped with the project strapline ‘bringing great ideas to life’. Roll on next Christmas!
In November 2012 our print partner Pureprint started beta testing the HP Indigo 10000 digital press and have placed an order for a second one which is due for delivery in August 2013. This new technology has enabled Studio401 to offer B2 large format, striking print quality and the ability to run personalisation across multiple versions at virtually no extra cost. Contact us to find out more about the benefits of large format digital printing.
Our seasonal Christmas greeting to our clients, with a twist. Perhaps the gifts got lost in the post? See the full set in the work section of the website.
Studio401’s long-term print partner Pureprint has announced its agreement to be one of the two British companies to beta test the new HP Indigo 10000 digital press, driving the development of this highly productive, versatile press and spearheading the introduction of new applications, not previously addressed by digital printing.
The launch of the new B2-format HP Indigo Digital Press is significant as it takes digital print deeper into the production mainstream. The 10000 press will be able to offer our clients cost-effective print solutions on shorter print runs for projects such as folders, packaging applications, brochures and posters. The press also offers the same personalising capabilities as the current smaller format Indigo 7500, with the benefit of the B2 sheet sizes. With the reduction of environmental impacts over the traditional litho printing processes, Studio401 are very excited about this new press and the benefits that we can offer to our clients. The press is due to be fully operational to our clients in early 2013.

Studio401 have recently finished designing ‘ONE UK’ a new digital online magazine for the leading French bank BNP Paribas. As well as designing the layout of the magazine we were asked to create a bespoke user interface with a view to making the navigation of the magazine and all back issues as user friendly as possible. All pages are media rich, fully interactive and feature custom animation. BNP Paribas are delighted with the results and we look forward to working on future issues.
