Sabine Lenz is the founder of PaperSpecs.com, the first online paper database and community specifically designed for paper specifiers.
Growing up in Germany, Sabine started her design career in Frankfurt, before moving to Australia and then the United States. She has worked on design projects ranging from corporate identities to major road shows and product launches. From start-ups to Fortune 500 companies, her list of clients included Oracle, Sun Microsystems, Deutsche Bank, IBM and KPMG.
Seeing designers struggle worldwide to stay current with new papers and paper trends inspired Sabine to create PaperSpecs, an independent and comprehensive Web-based paper database and weekly e-newsletter. She is also a speaker on paper issues and the paper industry. Some refer to her lovingly as the "paper queen" who combines her passion for this wonderful substrate called paper with a hands-on approach to sharing her knowledge.
This week, PaperSpecsGallery.com features the MCA Luminocity Gala 2013 invitation that was produced for the annual fundraising event held by the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver.
Designed by Ellen Bruss Design, and printed by Tewell Warren in Denver, the honeycomb foldout fan on the Luminocity Gala invitation brings a Victorian element forward for a joyous look, feel and sound.
The invitation was printed on xpedx Endurance gloss cover and Mohawk BriteHue was used for the envelopes. Eye-catching fluorescent inks were also used.
