    Print will never die because it’s a real, tangible expression of thought and creativity. It exists. And we are all sensory beings.

  • Pierre

    To my mind, the magic of print is about senses. You can touch, smell, see even taste (even of it’s weird) a book. But you mainly can hear the perfect sound of the pages.

  • Patrick Conway

    Not only is printed material a tactile experience it is a physical experience, from the production,to the purchase, to the sharing of an object.

  • Print is a sensory experience: design online is easily viewed, consumed, transitory, and doesn’t have the physicality and nuances of print technique and execution. We all want a keepsake of the things that we love and surround ourselves with the things that inspire us.

    Plick! When the lights go out so does today’s gadgetry and we turn to books, newspapers and gloriously designed magazines. To have, to hold…

    Print will never die because ..
    Print is about the making .. the sorting .. the patterning of the muse’s inspiration .. to physically engage with the typography and design makes it come alive .. to breathe the smell of ink, to feel the texture of the paper … to stuck a magazine into my bedside basket where I can easily see it ..not having to spend hours sifting through digital folder after folder in the vain hope of recovering it 🙂 … nah print is here to stay 🙂

    Because before printing, the world was a blank page!

  • Candice M

    Binary is boring. Printing is a magical dirty job. Ink smudges, varnishes slosh, paper creases, and I want to keep getting my hands dirty.

  • Jessica

    Print is an umbilical chord that binds the past to innovation and our minds to memories. An email is an annoyance, a bleep, an insistent alert; but the letter remains an event, a gesture, gathering dust and retrospect.
