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 presents the "New Move Trend Diary" self-promotional calendar piece created by German design firm EIGA Design, that examines visual trend and documents exceptional design around the central theme of motion and move. What is striking at first about the booklet is the super-thick front and back cover—four layers of stock in two different colors were laminated together for the special effect and then the front cover was laser engraved, a process that took about five minutes. The result is a cool textural effect.
"New Move Trend Diary," was printed by Media Druckwerk Gruppe GmbH in Hamburg, Germany, and the paper used was Römerturm Feinstpapier, Zanders Zeta Matt, and Legion Paper Colorplan.
