Weekly Roundup of Printed Genius #1

Welcome to Printed Genius’ first ever roundup of Print Design Inspiration. This is the era of freedom in design in terms of ideas and both and in the possibilities afforded by technology. Starting this week and as will be every week, we will give you but just a spoonful of the outstanding works we can find out there. Printed media are said to have lost their significance in this day and age because of the widening reach of the Internet, Social Media,  smart phones and tablets.  If there was any truth to this, then why do I see on a daily basis remarkable designs for postcard printing, handy brochures in the mail, knock out business card design all over the web, state-of-the-art poster designs, crafty product labels, not to mention evolutionary product packaging both online and off? It is evident in the quality of many printed materials being produced today that digital technology is not the only one going through major advancements, print technology is too. Needless to say, the explosion of graphic design talent has paved the way for more jaw-dropping print designs. With the marriage of print and a dynamic left-brain, here are some inspiring print designs we’ve found. Enjoy!
