An impressive response to this year’s D-Print Digital Design Competition is demonstrating a more sophisticated approach to the creative uses of digital printing. Many of the entries are driving digital printing design to new heights of creativity, according to company sources.

As the entries roll in for the fifth annual competition industry creatives are reminded of the end of February deadline to get their entries in.

This year’s campaign calls on the Australian creative community, including graphic designers, creative directors and marketing personnel, to experience the multitude of benefits that can be gained by utilising digital printing.
The D-Print Competition invites participants to experience the complimentary advantages of digital printing alongside traditional offset. A media campaign to support this initiative highlights the comparable high-end capabilities of Xerox DocuColor 2045, DocuColor 2060 and DocuColor 6060 digital printing presses. These include colour quality, variable data applications, short-run economies and quick turnaround times.

In addition, this year’s D-Print Competition aims to increase the awareness of personalised communication through creative applications. Entrants can achieve this by utilising the Fuji Xerox VariColor software range.

“We want to encourage creatives to really think outside the square and utilise digital printing innovatively,” said Brett Maishman, Fuji Xerox Australia’s Industry Marketing Manager, Graphic Arts. (pictured) “Our customers have embraced digital print and our aim is to build the consumers’ knowledge of this printing process and develop market awareness and business opportunities.”

During the D-Print campaign, members of the creative community are encouraged to visit participating printers to have a piece of work digitally printed. The entrant will be asked to describe in 25 words or less explaining the benefits of printing their application using Xerox digital technology.
