Designer and illustrator Barbara Kosoff, (http://www.barbarakosoff.com
) one of the two winners of GDUSA’s 2014 “Digital Print Cover Competition,” understands that there will always be value in good design. Regardless of the medium, she says, “a piece must look good, convey a message, and be compelling, interesting and memorable.”
When Kosoff is designing a print piece versus a digital piece, she finds that meeting all these criteria is just that much easier.
“One of the things I love about print is that it’s tactile,” Kosoff says. “I love being able to use different varnishes and textures. I like the fact that people can hold a print piece in their hands. You can touch it, turn its pages and interact with it. It’s your own experience.”
