According to Meredith Chesney, graphics educator, it is important for students that the highest standards of digital printing are used to print their design portfolios.

“This opportunity, provided by Océ, enabled the students to create and design the final art and then make sure it was printed the way they wanted it on correct media, completing the cycle,” she said.

“The students found it a terrific experience and, equally importantly, they were encouraged to work together in developing the work, which reinforced the teamwork ethic they will find in the workplace.”
