In PaperSpecs’ upcoming free webinar sponsored by Sappi North America, a master designer will have you re-thinking what you know about paper -- and life.

Palo Alto, Calif. – Have you ever wondered if a chameleon really changes colors to match its surroundings or whether we really only use 10 percent of our brains? Are you ready to rethink what you know about life – and paper?

One of the most effective ways for designers to communicate good ideas is to pick the perfect paper for the project. But there are a number of myths about paper that can get in a designer’s way.

In this upcoming webinar, AIGA medalist Kit Hinrichs, who has more than four decades of experience working on award winning designs using a multitude of papers, will dispel those myths, and shed light on some other fascinating urban legends that abound.

“There are so many myths that can get in our way,” says Sabine Lenz, founder of PaperSpecs.com. “With his breadth of experience, Kit Hinrichs dispels some of the common misconceptions about paper that can hold designers back while sharing the surprising truth about some fun urban legends along the way.”

Not only will you come away with the knowledge to confidently choose the right paper to thrill your audience and stay within budget, but this webinar will challenge some of your long-held beliefs about life.
