Ann Arbor, Michigan
Rockport Publishing, an art and graphic design publisher, has chosen a direct mail piece designed by Ann Arbor-based graphic design company, Wagner Design, for its new book, 1000 Graphic Elements. “With today’s ever-expanding repertoire of finishing techniques, materials, and processes, there are plenty of excuses to innovate. Some might argue that ‘everything’s been done before,’ but here are 1,000 pieces of work that beg to differ.” One thousand well-designed print communications pieces from around the world are highlighted in the book.
Wagner Design contributed an innovative, square direct mail piece for the publication. Created for ProQuest Information and Learning, the mailer was sent to Special Library Association attendees to direct them to the ProQuest booth. The black and red piece with a red vellum insert was sent in a square red glossy envelope to capture the attention of recipients.
