More Open Culture More Partners · Jordi ...

We asked Jordi Giralt directly, "Do KURZ open more up towards the world?" and Jordi Giralt answered immediately, "Yes." And you do see how KURZ with the Label Weeks opens up for more customers, but also new partners, like Grafotronic, which you can see in another INKISH film. The world is changing, and what we like about KURZ is that the solid business is based on solid values, robust leadership, and a fresh look at opportunities. Interesting to follow the KURZ journey, and in this interview yet, a chapter is documented :-)

Digital Print Simulation · Frank Wolteri...

This was a truly great session. Frank Woltering from ESKO took me through a software offered by ESKO called Digital Print Simulation. In ten minutes, you'll get an idea of how Digital Print Simulation can help you in not only achieving better digital print of your customer's artwork but, maybe even better, setting the terms for what tolerances your customer accepts based on what technology is available. I've seen similar software before, but Frank Woltering shows how easy it can be done using ESKO.

There are always two sides to a coin, so in this Interview, editor Morten B. Reitoft talks to Tyler Thompson, Solutions Director and former co-owner of Tilia Labs.
