Throughout this website I'll tell you loads of cool info about sustainable printing… "
" I was so, so happy with my postcards. They were exactly what I wanted – colour, texture etc. Thank you so much. Just in case you’re interested, the reason I chose Print Together (an odd choice being a Sydneysider and all) was because your website was so user-friendly. I stumbled upon your website and before I knew it I was uploading the art and entering my credit card details. So efficient! Of course, I was also attracted to fact that you’re environmentally responsible. And your price matched the Sydney printers I contacted. Excellent business! "

Interview with Luke Lucas
Calan Stanley from PrintTogether caught up with typographer Luke Lucas to talk about creating the artwork for the Print Weave Make brochure.
To start, can you tell me a little about how you got into specialising in typographic artwork?
It was mostly through my background in publication design. I've alway worked from the type out in my magazine layouts and for many publications, design custom typefaces to suit the aesthetic theme of the edition. The more work I did with type the more possibilities that I saw with what could be done.
Can you tell me how the Print Weave Make project come about?
What was the process in making the Print Weave Make brochure?
Your work is extremely detailed, how do you estimate your time in order to quote on projects, prior to receiving the job and knowing which direction you will take?
You made a conscious choice to use an uncoated 100% recycled paper for the Print Weave Make brochure, how important is the environmental sustainabilty of the materials you use?
Luke Lucas will be talking about the Print Weave Make project at Sex, Drugs and Helvetica on the 28th September 2012.
