We talk about ensuring print has "hang time". We also talk about a really unique piece of historical print, the cover from a 1952 issue of Fortune Magazine. Also, did you know that Bill is the owner of Paul Rands T-square? Yeah. Picked it up at an estate sale. Bill also talks about how the Gardner team always goes to press checks and the value that they have as part of the design process. There was 1 time when they didn't though, and the project didn't turn out entirely as planned.I always enjoy chatting with Bill and his energy and love for design is intoxicating! He even gave me a live demonstration of how they hand rivet parts of their business card, each one, hows that for effort and impact. Enjoy!
