Eye № 94
Eye is the world’s most beautiful and collectable graphic design journal, published quarterly for professional designers, students and anyone interested in critical, informed writing about graphic design and visual culture. The cover of Eye 94, front and back, is one of 8000 different numbered pieces of artwork printed digitally on an HP Indigo 10000 press at Pureprint using HP Mosaic, a program that enables variable data printing based on a single ‘seed’ vector file. Mosaic makes it possible to resize, rotate and change the colour palette of the artwork, cropping it to make each unique final cover file.
To make ten seed files, Paul McNeil and Hamish Muir produced a file in which the letters of the word ‘eye’ are repeated in fixed increments and in three layers, each set in a different font of their TwoPoint or TwoPlus typefaces.
