The best of the best!
Our winners in the seven categories, the special "Green Innovation" award for a particularly sustainable project, and the honorary award declared by Mr. Kohler.
The VDMB Annual Magazine 2020 makes use of all the possibilities available for a print product: high-quality paper in a wide range of variants, several printing techniques, numerous finishes, some of which are very sophisticated and rarely used, and a technically challenging binding.
All measures always have a conceptual background and a reference to the demanding and highly relevant content. LED UV offset printing (including opaque white), hot foil stamping, mirror foil lamination, a pop-up object and layflat binding with folding tape were used. Printing was done on various Gmund Colors papers, including Gmund Colors Transparent.

Title: VDMB-Jahresmagazin 2020
The Dauphin Group is a global provider of seating solutions, interior design and office furniture systems. The aspects of quality, durability and reliability play a very important role in the group of companies. These were consistently implemented in the submitted boxes and brochures.
Several collections of Gmund paper were used for this purpose: Gmund Colors Matt 63, 01 and 99 as well as Gmund Bauhaus Dessau, among others. Hot foil stamping, printing 2/0 Pantone and printing 4/4 Euroscala including relief varnish created extremely coherent, high-quality corporate ambassadors that perfectly reflect the philosophy of the Dauphin Group.

Title: New World Symphony //
A World of Difference Gala Invitation
Miami-based agency Seraph Design's invitation to the gala celebrating the 32nd anniversary of the New World Symphony, themed "A World Difference," demonstrates its global influence on the world of classical music.
Packaged in a complex hand-folded world map, this work with Lakepaper Blocker and Gmund Matt 86 and 89 is convincing all along the line. Techniques used: 4-color lithography, hot foil and die-cutting.
FYFF AG (Retterspitz)
Title: Retterspitz Duftserie "Juniper"
For the customer Retterspitz, the agency FYFF AG developed a completely sustainable packaging series for the fragrance series "Juniper". A special Gmund Bio Cycle grammage of 350g was used for the packaging with an individual surface structure and contour die-cutting.
For the labels, too, a special production of an adhesive paper with surface structure based on Gmund Bio Cycle was used. The ecological packaging made of recycled paper scores with its simple, very reduced design and a very coherent CI across all tools.
Bölling GmbH & Co KG is a finishing company that combines time-honored techniques with state-of-the-art processes. The wedding card "We said yes" impresses with the play of light and shadow, created by a very deep blind embossing.
No printing ink was used, the card impresses with "pure paper". Sending high-quality cards in times of digital communication is a sign of class. A laminated Gmund Hemp 100% 640g/m² paper was used. The banderoles were made of Gmund Cotton. Matching envelopes from the Gmund Colors system were used.

Title: Shueisha Manga-Art Heritage
Through the combination of Gmund Cotton and Letterpress as well as the use of the new Blockchain technology, a different kind of art has been created.
The Shueisha Publishing House from Tokyo specializes in Japanese comics "Manga" among many other business fields and wants to establish them as an art form through the extraordinary art prints. The letterpress print on a Heidelberger from 1960 is a haptic sensation and the deserved winner in this category.
The great feel of the paper harmonizes perfectly with the sensational images of nature and people. The image reproduction in LE-UV offset printing is perfectly achieved on Lakepaper Blocker paper.
Viewing it creates the feeling of almost staying in the scene yourself. Due to the matte surface of the paper, there is no reflection or glossy effects. The free spine makes for better impact, and the black hot foil on linen for title & spine makes for a high quality entry.
Druckerei Vogl GmbH & Co. KG

In the POP Up Art exhibition "Flowers for Elise" in the Beethoven Year 2020, the idea was born to present Beethoven portraits in a new form using digitally created images by artist Tobias Schreiber.
The Gmund Colors Matt collection offered the perfect solution to fulfill Beethoven's quote "Only harmony can awaken passion". 48 images, 1 image in whole! Printed digitally. The perfect use of all Gmund Colors colors to fuse music with paper.
