In the January/February 2015 edition of GDUSA, Mohawk was the exclusive sponsor of the 52nd Annual People To Watch editorial feature. That kicked off a year long initiative in the pages of GDUSA by the fine paper maker to recognize the work of aspiring and seasoned designers through a series of storytelling inserts entitled “Champions of Craft.”
The second installment: a Champions of Craft piece in the March/April 2015 issue of GDUSA featuring Erik Marinovich. Marinovich, a designer and letterist, is the co-founder of Friends of Type. The collective quickly gained a large and enthusiastic following and, almost 6 years later, it is still going strong. Marinovich has refined his craft and is now a leader in the form. He is also three years into another venture, this one with the legendary Jessica Hische. Marinovich tells Mohawk: “I discovered that good lettering is like aged whiskey. It takes effort to craft and time to age. To date I have have only created my first batch. I now continue the never ending process of refining it.”

Mohawk is proud to be the exclusive sponsor of GDUSA’s 2015 People To Watch special report. At Mohawk, we are passionate about supporting the creative community, and we are pleased to have the opportunity to partner with GDUSA to recognize and celebrate the work of aspiring and seasoned designers.
This summer, to give designers an opportunity to become better acquainted with digital printing technology — as well as digital papers that can enhance design projects and solutions — GDUSA conducted a special “Digital Print Cover Competition.”
Neenah was a natural sponsor given its rich variety of paper colors and textures for digital print applications. Several hundred designers entered the competition, and two winners were selected based on their submission’s success in integrating design, production and papers. A dozen honorable mentions were also designated.
