Newton Press Old Print

Another promotional video for Newton Press Ltd featuring the 9810 ABDICK print machine.

This is the oldest method of print they use here other than the heidelburg which is based in their Spalding agency.

Thanks to Cliff for letting me video his great work (and getting in the way a lot.)

Newton Press Ltd - Promotional Video

Here is a promotional video that I did for Newton Press Ltd whilst completing work experience there. The video was primarily promotional for their website but it also was to show the customer what newton press do, literally from the first idea to the final piece. I learnt how to use iMovie really well (it has limitations as a program but it still managed to look good.)

It features their machinery Presstek 34di, Roland 54 inch soljet, and 9810 ABdick and a lot of what they do as a company in the warehouse behind closed doors and all the effort and skill that it takes.

I really enjoyed my time there as well as working with all the members of staff. Thank you to Newton Press Ltd and the 'NewtonNinja' for having me.

Enjoy the video and leave comments below!

Lead type

On my first day back at Newton Press Ltd, Cliff, who works the old machine there gave me a bag. I opened it and he had given me some old lead type from the machines they have there that they no longer use. He gave me my first name in both uppercase and lower case. How thoughtful!

They smell all oily and old, they're lovely and I will be using them in my home-made publications and books in the future.

Simple. Lovely.

Newton Press Work Experience

So I'm three and a half day into my just under three week work placement with Newton Press Ltd - print and design agency in Sutterton, Lincolnshire.

Already I've been given a lot of responsibility and jobs to do. Here are a few examples of the things I've been getting up to...

D&G letterhead re-creation.

Modified logo and re-creation.

Vinyl for a taxi company, logo design.

GCE fax statement, re-creation (possibly one of the most tedious things I've ever had to do!)

There will be a lot more to come! Video promotion for the website, more live projects etc. etc.
