54th Annual Print + Paper Survey

PRINT_SURVEY_2017_FEAT1

SPONSORED BY VERSO CORPORATION

BY GORDON KAYE

For the 54th year, GDUSA has conducted a reader survey about print design. When print was predominant, our surveys got into the weeds: details about projects, presses, papers, practices. Today, print is an option and a choice and, therefore, the survey focuses on existential questions: its role, purpose and future. Here, the 2017 results and comments are both suggestive and informative.
