On September 26th started a new school year in Eina’s Master in Graphic Design, made up of 26 participants this time.
Shortly after, the students receive a visitor as part of the program of the Graphic Arts subject: it’s no other than Rai Llopart, from the Atlantis company, who came to teach a masterclass on types of paper and printing systems.
Rai talks about both basic concepts of the sector and very specialized procedures. Some of the topics commented are the differences between coated, uncoated and fine papers; the properties of dry and liquid toner; UV inks and varnishes; or techniques like embossing or stamping.
The lecture was filled with examples, some of them being screened and some others being touched thanks to numerous paper samples. The students have now a lot of new options to consider for their forthcoming projects.
