So, at the moment I would like my project to incorporate some aspect of print. That being said and considering it has been quite a while since I have developed anything for print, this is a fantastic re-introduction to designing for print media. Gareth very clearly emphasises the need for the use of CMYK (which allows for a wide spectrum of colours) when printing magazines and brochures or the use of Pantones for business cards, what to be aware of for image quality including the use of 300 DPI in order to avoid pixelation. Also to avoid .PNG or .GIF as they are primarily used for web. Marks and bleed are spoken about with great importance so as to avoid losing detail and impact of the final product.
