Print v digital

Notebook: 13 October 2014


The latest issue of Army Cadet magazine landed in the Archant Dialogue office today. The first thing we all did was pick it up, shove our noses deep into the middle of the mag and inhale deeply. The smell of the fresh print was delicious. The iPad digital version will never smell as good! Art Editor Claire reckons that cyan ink smells the best and confessed to always trying to use lots of cyan in her layouts so that her magazines always smell good! Here’s a spread from the latest issue with an illustration by David Semple using lots of… cyan. You can see more of the mag here but you won’t be able to smell it.
