Digital meets Print – New VIsion of the Future

Global Innovation Gathering (GIG)
re:publica 2016


The digitisation of printed materials is in full swing. But whats happening on the flip-side?


Kate is a "creative scientist", who brings the worlds of print and digital closer together through some ingenious ideas and different approaches. Her work doesn't just focus on displaying the digital on printed posters, brochures or packaging – she also enriches printed materials with multimedia content. The actual feel of print gains a surprisingly new value.

Together with Novalia, the company she co-founded, and aided by conductive ink and touch sensors, Kate brought print production into the 21st century with the focus of enhancing static print through interactive content.  She created a poster that plays music which can also be manipulated through touch. She has also created vinyl album sleeves which, when connected to a turntable and cross-fader app, turns its artwork into a DJ set through touch. 

In this workshop, Kate will present some past projects demonstrating her new vision of the future.
