Anyone working with and specifying paper faces a confusing world of technical and functional detail. Paper weights, surface finishes, printing profiles… you need to touch and feel paper, experience the printing quality, in order to make the right paper choices. This understanding is key to delivering your brilliant idea or brand.

Sappi is a global brand; we worked together with US design agency VSA to develop a new universal, contemporary visual identity to work across all Swatchbooks in the coated paper range such as Sappi Magno and Sappi Galerie Art.

The Swatchbooks are an essential tool for creative people and
print managers in agencies; we wanted to make decision-making both tactile and immersive. We created a unique and engaging graphic cover facet system developing imagery specifically
to the paper grades.

We used still life photographer Rowan Fee to create the imagery.
The swatchbooks have been printed in different languages and distributed throughout Europe.
