Create a calendar like no one had ever produced before. It would use only the finest, most colorful photographic images, images that explode off the page with rich, vibrant saturated color. It would be designed by the most talented people. We would use the finest number one coated paper. We would utilize the newest technologies in producing something never done before.
The result would be a masterfully crafted calendar that would act as a calling card for all involved. Production would involve a printer, photographer, agent, graphic designer, paper company, ink company, workflow software company and MIS product, press, and printing plate manufacturers. Lastly, to top off the icing on the fantasy cake, Pantone. We wanted to use the latest PANTONE Goe colors and have them specified throughout the process – from artist to designer to printer.
