Moodboard Series: Print is Not Dead

Laura Busche April 29, 2021 · 2 min read

There’s something incomparably charming about holding great design with your hands. No matter how digital our everyday lives get, the tactile experience of a beautifully designed object is simply unique. Multiple studies show that the items we interact with on a sensory level leave a lasting impression, and paper is no exception. Just think about the last time you experienced the printed word: a book, magazine, newspaper, letter, snail mail. Wasn’t it particularly memorable? In a way that a website couldn’t be?
The three moodboards you’ll find below are a celebration of paper, a versatile, enticing medium that remains a source of inspiration for designers all around the world. Check out even more inspiring moodboards in this series here.
