An Artist’s Portfolio

Once in a while we get to work with artists who wish to transform their creations into a product. The process of moving from art to product is often a long and explorative one. Artists seek much more than a standard specification for design and print. Their creations are sacred and need a lot more attention to detail.

We are working with artist Joanna Long and her beautiful artwork to create a portfolio. Here is what she says about her experience.

“It is always a pleasure, as an Artist, to collaborate with Roma on design and print projects. Her creative direction reflects years of experience and offers a confidence as well as a superbly keen eye for the way things come together.

She is intuitive and truly feels into what the Artist needs as well as knowing when to contribute suggestive ideas. She is gentle in her offerings and opens up much space for discussion around how projects creatively evolve. I felt a tremendous trust in her capacity to hold and manage the project I was working on – and am always impressed by her efficiency and attention to detail. There is a beautiful blending that exists here, between artistry and design – somehow the boundaries merge – and this is a quite rare gem to find; this is no ordinary printing service.”
