Cohoes, NY – Mohawk, North America’s largest privately-owned manufacturer of fine papers, envelopes and specialty substrates for commercial and digital printing, announces the release of the sixth issue of the award-winningMohawk Maker Quarterly publication.
Mohawk Maker Quarterly issue No. 06 was designed by Hybrid Design, based in San Francisco, CA. “Mohawk Maker Quarterly issue No. 06 explores the concept of impressions and how, whether tangible or abstract, our reality is formed by the impressions we make and take,” said Dora Drimalas, Principal, Hybrid Design.
To support the theme of impressions, each issue of Mohawk Maker Quarterly Issue No. 06 contains a limited-edition, two-color collectable insert letterpress printed by Minnesota-based Studio on Fire. A total of three collectable designs were letterpress printed on Mohawk Options Vellum 100% PC White 130 dtc. The designs are titled “Victory” by Erik Marinovich, “Man Made” by Invisible Creature, and “California Gold No. 2 – Sun” by Lab Partners. These designers are featured in an ongoing series called Mohawk Champions of Craft, developed to highlight creatives who demonstrate impeccable craftsmanship and attention to detail in their work.
“In the Impressions issue of The Maker Quarterly we look at how the act of making in itself is a powerful way to create a lasting impression. At Mohawk we believe strongly in the power of paper and print to make a high impact impression, whether it’s a handwritten note, an engraved invitation or richly textured book cover,” said Chris Harrold, Vice President of Business Development and Creative Director, Mohawk.
