The Finishing School

Celloglas Finish Computer Arts With Light-Reactive Photochromic Inks

The November issue (Issue #233) takes a look at ‘The UK’s Top 30 Design Studios’ by exploring the peer reputation of select studios, rather than comparing size, turnover and number of awards.

The cover of this issue was finished by Celloglas at their Leicester site. The cover was finished firstly with a gloss spot UV on the main image of the design. It then went on to the next process which includes a Photochromic ink, a special screen process that is cured and when exposed to UV light (i.e. sunshine) the ink changes colour from invisible to a bright purple! The final touches also include a purple foil on the ‘Design Matters’ logo at the header of the page.

Nick Carson, editor of Computer Arts, added; “Once again, the cover of the magazine looks amazing. The light-reactive inks are something we’ve never tried before, and there has been a lot of interaction on social media with our readers about it! As you hold up the magazine to the light it reveals all 30 studio names. Magical.”

The November issue is on sale now.
