Services | Print Communications

A&C develops print publications, books or strategic communications to achieve institutional objectives. Depending on our objective, publications might take the form of educational kits, corporate newsletters, coffee table art books, exhibition posters, limited edition prints, or catalogues. Our work encompasses:
  • Developing single-issue strategic or crisis communications
  • Creating special printed projects such as posters or brochures, that entail providing content, design, editing production and distribution;
  • Establishing client identity through printed promotional initiatives such as posters, flyers or press-kits aimed at cultivating specific media or a key constituency;

Sample projects:
